3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From Mars... Dark copper pour, nice aromas of bock-like spice and sweet caramel, even a dusting of cocoa powder. More cinnamon spice right away, the middle is all lightly toasted malts, and a finish of very light pine hop. Just a touch too sweet still in the finish, but otherwise solid.

Bottle. A good amber ale, fruity and yeasty, but not overpowering. Great fragrance. Taste is a little sour at times, but still refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a light beige head of foam. Good lacing and retention. The aroma is malty sweet with just a touch of spice. Maybe there’s a rye addition. The taste is mostly sweet and crackery. Light body with medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Beloit. This pours clear amber and and has a small beige layer of foam. A nice aroma that is full of malts and more delicate fruit. Some dry hop notes brings a bit of spiciness to the flavor. The Irish malts are close to genuine and the fruit is evident. A little earth and toffee. This drinks a lot like an English Bitter. Pleasant.
