3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish/brown color with a good off-whiter head. Malty aroma with a little pine. Flavor has more hops than I thought. A little acidity and a little roastiness/nuttiness. There’s a slight astringincey in the beer that isn’t quite so smooth, but it’s still easy to drink.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Slightly hazy copper pour with a large frothy head. More body than I was expecting. Unusual notes as well. Blood oranges. Plum pudding. Mulberries. Currants. Pomegranate. Caramel covered apples. Pleasant juicy flavors with a strong punch of spicy sweetness in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance has a ruby red color supporting a fair head that slowly dissispates leaving spotty lace. Smell has a nice balance between sweet caramel malt and the floral hop aroma. Taste faulters a bit from the aroma in not having that full flavor balance. Mouthfeel is lighter than medium with good carbonation.

Aroma is slightly perfumed fruit and mild notes of sweetness and earthiness. The flavor is fruit, light citrus, malts, spices and a mix of tangy/bitter/mild tartness in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour deep red to bronze. Nose has elements of burnt caramels, raisins, light flowery hops. Flavor is similar. Not a lot going on in this beer but the dryness is really there and keeps this drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brownish color. Smells a little hoppy. Yes, some hops in the flavor but less than I was expecting according to the smell. Some hops attempt to build during the session but never quite gets there. Yes, overall not a bad beer. Some spice in there. Some sizzle. Generally a laid back almost hoppy beer. Just enough hops to let you know its malt backed by a medium low hop kick. As the session nears the end I think I detect a very mild hint of tartness in there.
