3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours beautiful ruby with small tan head that quickly diminishes. Mild apple and pear notes in the nose mixed with a sharp almost pine note. Flavor is well balanced, leaning toward sweet, smoky malts. Alcohol speeds the mild, peaty finish. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the good things I have to say about this beer is that the O’Dells rep gave me a bottle for free when I was loading up for the weekend at Liquormart last Friday afternoon. Light brown color, quickly diminishing head. Kind of a wood-scented aroma. Light carbonation, light body, slightly bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 This was probably my first declared "favorite" beer. Darker amber. Maybe a bit over carbonated. They have a cask conditioned on tap sometimes. The lower carbonation really opens up the flavors. Wood and smoke, sap even (?) I really like it. Pork or pizza.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with off-white head that is generous in size and retains rather well. Nose is soft with some toasty aromas and light caramel. Easygoing and appetizing aroma. More caramel and toasty flavors on the palate with less than average hopping for a winter warmer. Light to medium bodied and very, very drinkable.

Enjoyed at Old Chicago as part of mini tour. A nice bit of bitter and rather toasty. Works ok but not worth another.
