3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orangish coloring with a medium head. Kind of a fruity aroma with a slight tinge of wood. Taste has some more wood (was this in a barrel at any point in its life?) and finished off with apple. Not too bad!

Dusty tan. Nose sweet, lots of toffee. Very malty flavor, caramel and toffee, some peachy fruitiness as well. Good finish of hops at the end. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright copper colored pour with a spongy, but thin white head. Fresh, flowery aroma with a bit of an overripe fruit back end to it - subtle but nice. Sweet, malty flavor with some peach and nectarine accents. Very enticing. Excellent balance, bitterness comes through silently and softly in the back end. Mouthfeel feels just right - could see myself downing several of these in an English Pub

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was a softly carbonated transparent orange brown color. The aroma was mild with malt and ale like notes with peach an dust. The mouth feel was initially smooth and a mild bitter finish with some vinous notes. The flavor was mildly bitter malty and it became a little more bitter as I consumed the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Small sized creamy off-white head and fine-medium sized bubbles. Fast-rising carbonation, semi-transparent and an orange hue. Malty, caramel, hoppy and fruity aroma. Light bitter, malty, hops and vinuous flavor. Smooth and thin mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied with fair lacing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is very fruity with notes of chocolate, lemon, and spices. The color is a beutiful golden with a fine beige head. The flavor is very roasted, very dry, very flowery - primarily elderflower, and very hoppy. It gives a sting to the tongue while drinking. Quite an interesting beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a decent, somewhat off-white, head. It's duration is average. My nose isn't working to well but the ale smells sweet. The taste is enjoyable with the malts standing out. There are just enough hops to make this beer not tip too far on the malty side. The palate is all malt and is also enjoyable. Hey, this a well rounded brew. Probably would go great with fried or grilled foods. Maybe has a little too much carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured orange with a small head and a musky sour aroma. Taste isn't much better except it does have a bit of malty sweetness to it. Finish is clean but way too light.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours extremely over my expectations. Dark burnt raw sienna colors with a huge rocky head. Nice aroma that reminds me of a candle flavor that I cannot put my finger on, but you can definitely find the honey wafting in there somewhere. Lots of caramel and toffee, with some light fruits, that never really make there presence known. A bit unbalanced, but overall pretty tasty.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Paid $2.99 for a 500ml bottle.
Nice burnt-orange color, very luscious small fluffy head. Great lacing.
Nice sweet scent that I can't quite place.
Wow... nice, creamy, smooth taste.... did I mention creamy? How about creamy? This is damn good.
I have never seen this beer before, but if I see it again, I'm gonna buy it right away. Damn good beer!!! I wish I would have gotten more than just one.
additional notes: I noticed that many people say to drink this at room temperature- what i found best was to let this beer chill about 20 minutes in the fridge, and then drinking- so slightly cooler than room temperature was my favorite, but not cold!
