3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Poured clear amber-orange with a very thin white head. The aroma is light with sweet caramel malt. Body is a bit fizzy, average. Flavour is nice with caramel, some nuttiness and a grassy hops note, but it’s just lacking something.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not sure if this was just because it was the first taster of the morning at the Mill St. brewery store, but it tastes and smells a little sour. The bitterness factor doesn’t come much into play here. An unexpected - and not very pleasant - experience.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle, 4.6% a/v.
Pours fiery and deep copper color with a thin off white head. Aroma is very malty and caramel, some nice nut aromas too. The taste is similarly malty and nutty, almost a deep roasted almond palate to finish it off. This is a very well balanced brew, glad to see Mill Street keep pumping out the quality beer!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Brassy golden colour, medium white head. Aroma is grainy with light toffee, a little weak. Flavours are dull, watery toffee and grains, metallic note in the finish. A poor example of a style that ranges widely. Maybe the ingredients were authentic, but the craftsmanship missed the mark.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a clear light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light dry caramel malt notes with some light dry hops. Taste is a mix of dry caramel malt notes with some light subtle hops at the end. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing bad here though nothing earth shattering either.
