3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly murky orange color with thin off white head. A rather full malt aroma of pale, grain and biscuit malts. Solid malt flavors coming from caramel, lightly roasted malts, pale malts and grain like malts. There seems to be a load of non-fermentable sweet and grainy malt sugars. The grain malts are so grainy there’s almost a husk grittiness left behind in the aftertaste. The maltiness actually seems to grow stronger as time passes. Hops are just barely noticeable and play a minor role.

Pours copper, with a thick, fluffy tan head. Thin mouthfeel, quite bitter. Not bad, quite well balanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Sweet fruity and hoppy nose. Strong earthy notes. Pours clear orange with a huuuge creamy beige head, rocky and extensively-lacing. Hoppy and lightly bitter. Caramel, toffee, light earthiness. Dark sweetness. Light-medium body. Very soft mouthfeel, balanced and gentle. This leans toward the watery side, but no matter, it’s a good session.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A distinctly milky aroma with sweet caramel and volatile western hops which are piney and vanilla on the inhale. Brilliant, reddish-bronze and very clear. Interesting label. Grassy, somewhat drier and more cereal than I was expecting, acidic. Not a huge hop charge, but a building bitterness. Crisp and amply CO<sub>2</sub> charged, medium body. Aftertaste has some very light roast and chocolate. I gave a bottle of this to PorterPounder a couple of months back, and now my bread has come back upon the water. A very poised brew.

Poured a amberish small head smalle lacing. Aroma was very musty. Flavor was of caramel malts woody some fruitiness to it as well. Mouthfeel was a little off. Okay but not great.
