3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Mild chocolate and piney hop aroma. Light coppr/brown color and fairly constant 2-cm head. Earthy hop mix initial / very light cocoa or bready chocolate cake in mid palate / returns to earthiness in final, with some mild lingering hop bitterness. Thin body. Very light flavors. Pleasant, Okay.

Pours reddish brown, filtered. Aroma is great, pine, roast. Taste is hoppy, with little malt sweetness. Nice change of pace for fall beers. A little thin.

Clear copper with a rocky beige slowly fading crown. Aroma is floral with herbal notes, caramel and some fruit beneath. Taste of caramel, floral hops and not much else. Bland, gritty with a prickly and somewhat bitter finish. Ok at best.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish amber. I found it to be a little too malty. The aftertaste was off. Probably not something I'd try again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours reddish amber with a nice wispy tan head. Medium bodied with lush carbonation. Notes of resinous citrus, chocolate malt, toffee malt, fair bit of roast. I found the roasted malt to clash a bit with the hops.
