3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber brew with small fast fading head. Smell and taste is dominated by caramelized malts but it is not overly sweet as I first thought it was going to be. Really good brew that I am enjoying today and will buy this one again next year.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Amber-copper colored with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of sawdust and spicy rye bread. The taste conjures up images of spruce and rye. The palate is medium and appropriate for the style. Finished long and dry and a tiny bit astringent. Overall: I could drink this all day long its an immediate favorite. Decent brewski.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Meditrina. Crystal clear light amber with lasting head and a little lace. Toasted caramel minerally earthy aroma. Toasted caramel sweetness with some toasted nuts grass bread. Mild minerally earthy finish with just a touch too much residual sweetness for my taste, possibly due to higher alcohol than it needs to be. Medium slick body. Pretty excellent/very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Smudged best by date but it looks like sometime in November 2016. Handsome medium amber pour under a quick lasting off-white head. Big sweet and malty presence in the aroma with a low to no hop profile. Sort of tobacco ester too. The body is around medium. The taste is malty and sweet with a slight burnt note and a mild bitter finale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pretty good - hefty malt doses but nice clean finish. Appearance is quite red and clear. Nose of biscuits, cookie and caramel. Full palate. Enjoyable and true to style.
