3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at pony with Andrew. Deep clear amber body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is chock full of caramel and syrupy resin. Mouthfeel is medium with maple syrup dominating. Backing notes of clean caramel malts and resiny hop. Overall, too syrupy in my opinion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pine Box Rock Shop, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours dark red, almost brown with a tan head. Aroma is piny, citrus, and resin hops, with a hefty malt backbone and touches of a chocolate and dirt. Taste is bitter and sweet in probably equal doses. The hop bitterness lingers and stings in the mouth. This beer is wicked astringent. This was a bit much for a finisher beer for me. Probably would have been a better Tuesday night beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 10-04-2009 (Bottle) This bottled beer pours a small fizzy tan head that mostly diminished, slightly hazy body, lots of floaties, visible carbonation, spotty amounts of lacing, and an orange hue. The Aroma is malty, wheat, some caramel, earthy, citrus, and pine hops. The Taste is malty, acidic, spicy, bitter, citrus and pine hops, and alcohol. The Palate tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, hops up front, boozy, and worthy of trying.
