3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish amber with a tan head. Powerful and pleasant malt aroma, very nice. Mouthful is creamy, and the flavour starts sweet and fruity with a well-balanced bitter finish. It's always nice to find an unknown beer that turns out to be this good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Candied malt aroma, amber, with a medium sized toffee head, and some nice lace. Bitter/sweet malt flavour, some caramel too, nutty aftertaste. Almost a full bodied beer, pleasantly bitter, a very good one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber w/ attractive tan head. Fresh malty nose w/ leafy hop notes. Firm, slightly resiny body. Good malty character w/ some butterscotch & caramel (though perhaps a little cloying as the beer warmed). Nice earthy hop finish.
