2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle -pours a big rich to rocky off white head and hazy gold/amber color. Aroma is sweet caramel/pale-light/medium malt, secondary citrus/floral/spicy hops. Taste is a bit thin pale malt-some caramel, secondary floral/earthy/tea leaves/metallic hops. Much is OK but the detractors show up more, the further I get in. Thanks to chesky-SD via Joe-jwc215 for the trade.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home - Apr ’12.
Hazy orange/amber pour with a smallish white head.
Sweetish malts on the nose, a little toffee, muted hop aroma.
Not as sweet in the taste as the aroma suggested, caramel malt, toffee, hops, a little herbal flavour.
Medium bodied and carbonation with a clean finish.
Drinkable but uninspiring.
