Pours dark amber with frothy head. Nose is full of malt and hops. A bit of caramel and roasted notes near the end. Taste is a very balanced sweet with a hoppy finish. Great happy hour choice like the fusion.

12 oz bottle from Baruni’s in Baden, PA. Perfectly tuned to the reggae spirit although not as tasty as a Red Stripe. Taste may vary depending on venue and state of mind.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Stone 17th anniversary party. Dark amber in color, clear, and with a small light beige head. Rather boring aroma and flavor, some pleasant hoppy notes though, as well as caramel hints and a little hint of lightly roasted malts. Medium body, quite dry. Decent finish. A quite boring one, can’t understand what it is doing in this company. 130816

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at beir Barron (the old brickskeller).
Pours a deep and dark amber with a fluffy little head. This is what an amber should look like. The aroma was nice, but not at the same level of the appearance. The flavor was quite good, not perfectly balanced with a touch more malty flavor than hops. But the hops were definitely there. Quite a good beer.
