3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The balance of sweetness and bitterness is good, but the flavor isn’t strong enough to quite mask the alchohol. If I pay 8 bucks for a 6-pack, and the ABV is 8 or less, I would hope the alcohol wouldn’t come through as much.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle. I couldn’t find a date of any kind.
Pours a 24 karat gold with a substantial head of foam that shrinks to aboot a quarter inch. Some nice lacing.
I get caramel malt, fruity hops, some booze in the smell.
Caramel malt and fruity tastes up front, mild bitterness mid palate, sweetish finish along with some alcohol and alcohol burning.
Medium body and carbonation.
A bit of a different bird here. I enjoyed the bottle and may pick up another.
