3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Kiev 2016) 355 ml. bottle. BBF 05.10.16. Cough syrup amber with a small tanned head. Nose is pine resin & cough syrup, bit too heavy on the biscuit malt, light sugar. Taste is medium herbal hops, bit too much biscuit & toffee, tad too sweet, low bitterness, herbal pine, tad too sweet, lightly bland, low medicinal hops in the finish. Creamy toffee & biscuit body. Doesn’t really pop but still a pleasant enough and easy beer, not bad, could have been more but not bad as it is.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Burnt umber color with a moderate, manila folder colored head and decent lace. Aromas of stewed fruit. Some sweet caramelized malt and herbal hops in the background. I keep sniffing, but not much more to this one. Sweet toasted malt in the front. Some mildly rancid nuts work their way in along with some licorice and bitter herbal hops. Just not my type of brew. I’d call it a IIA (imperial Irish ale).

ThIs amber had a sweetish nose and flavor with a bit of citrus/orange and pine to go along with ample caramel. Mouth is weak like most lakefront beers I’ve had, but otherwise good.
