3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clear ruby with a fine, white cream head. Aroms holds some smokey, somewhat pale malts. Big sweet flavor with some caramel, fruits and hints of leaves. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with light alcohol bite, faint tang, light berries, more mellow smoke. Not bad. I honestly think a lot of people docked this beer points because of the unsavory associations it conjured up.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ Borefts 12. Clear orange-golden color, small off-white head that’s mostly diminishing. Light to moderately malty aroma, slightly sweetish, toast and something weird reminding me of paint. Taste lightly sweet, slightly paint, slightly smoked malts. Weird beer this one. Low body, soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light hazy yellow orange colored beer with a small white head.
Taste is sweet, barley malt sweets, hop sweets grain sweets, but also some vegetables, meat and smoke... Weird but yet pretty sweet and hoppy.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Didn’t think it was bad, but it was sweet.
Absolutely the best tap ever!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Borefts 2012. Amber color. Fruity sweets and smoke in both aroma and flavor. The beaver must have behaved himself, because I didin’t notice its traces.
