3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 (Bottled) Clear, dark ruby brown with a medium, tanned head. Nutty-woody-aromatic citrusy-hoppy aroma with a hint of toffee. Quite strongly aromatic-hoppy flavor with some dull ashiness in the middle, and a smooth, flowery-aromatic finish. Medium-bodied, slightly foamy-carbonated palate. A pleasantly hoppy and balanced easter brew, but the ashiness reduces drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Red, coppery body with a medium creamy white head. A beautiful sight. Aroma is peachy hop tones with a pleasant malt balance. Hints of red berries and wild strawberries in particular. Taste is a smooth blend of grassy hops, malts and fruity hints of red berries and honey melon. Not terribly exciting but a very nicely composed beer that I wouldn’t mind having for Easter. Or summer, like now. :-)
