3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Park Ave fest. Pours deep copper with white head. The maple sugar was evident, as was some fruity notes. Unfortunately my tasting was hampered by the plastic cup it was served in, as well as the low 90’s degree temps outside. I will endeavor to retaste under proper conditions.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. It pours a deep orange color with a small off white head. The aroma is thick with orange, caramel and honey. Light hints of earthy hops. The flavor is the same. Orange, honey and caramel. Very thick and oily on the palate and sweet for the style. A decent amount of earthy bitterness in the finish. Overall, not bad, but a little too sweet and syrupy for me to rate it high.

A sweet malt aroma with a hint of honey, pours a reddish brown color with a thin short lasting well laced head. An interesting taste, sweet malt hops and a hint of something like lemon grass. A full body with a malt finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours a medium amber with a hint of haze and a tan cap. The smell is roasted malt, fruit sweetness, and a touch of brown sugar and herbs. The taste is roasted malt, fruity, crisp hops in the middle ending crisp with a lingering sweetness. Light+ in body with average carbonation. I lived in Düsseldorf for 4 years, this is in the ballpark of a Stikebier but unfortunately doesn't hold up to the originals.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A favorite everyday drinker. Not sure why I’ve waited. Bottle poured honey amber, crystal clear. Fine bubbled thin head. Palate is a clean clingy board of malts. Sweet finish lingers. Well done.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a bit copper and a bit cloudy. Slight floral aroma. Big malt up front but a strong boozy flavor that I didn’t enjoy. Some heat at the back end so no hiding the higher ABV. I really like their regular alt and think I’ll stick to that.

Smells of caramel malt orange zest with a slight rotted grape of wine smell. Color is a orange and gold color. Taste as sweet from the mounts bitterness coming through slightly fall by Boozy aftertaste. Medium body smooth Crisp carbonation. Not a bad brew just don’t care for the winey finish or the alcohol burn.

If you’re looking to stick every rating here on at least one beer, this fits the just-above-the-middle-of-the-road rating. It’s got a bitter aftertaste that takes away from the initial taste, but not so bitter that it runs it. It’s...just above average.
