3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very drinkable, and an all-round good brew. Light coloring, good label. Just the right balance of fruit and light sweetness with the starchier side of malt and pleasant US hopping. Satisfying mouthfeel. Lingering hops in the sweetish finish. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from the ACC tourney!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, medium dark amber with a long lasting head and a curtain of lace. Taste is rich malt with light bittering, reminding me of butterrum candy and tea. The taste is is full and somewhat sweet, a combination of yeast and caramel. Highly drinkable, enjoyable (but not for hopheads), not filling, recommended.
