2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Growler... RBWG 2013... Pours lightly hazed and light yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is bursting at-the-seams with spiciness – overbearing notes of clove and coriander. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mildly sweet and loaded with clove spiciness. Lengthy, spicy finish. I could have lived without that overbearing, clove-like phenol. I’m no fan of that. Growler courtesy of ygtbsm94!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blonde golden coloured body with the slightest haze and a thin, one centimetre off-white head. Aroma of very light malt, some yeast and rice notes and a little floral hoppiness - not much though. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malt flavour with some subdued sweetness, a hint of cardboard and staleness and a little hop touch at the end. Aftertaste shows some nice sweetness from honey and fruit and very little else aside from the malt. Overall, a decent light beer with an okay profile, but no real complexity and depth. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia after a hockey game on 13-November-2013 - Thanks Kev!

12 oz bottle Christmas beer for 2013 This is a style of beer that does not suit my taste. The ale poured a hazy amber with no head. The aroma was sweet fruit. The taste of a malt and some cloves. Light body with soft carbonation. Finish was spicy and typical of belgian ales.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m becoming a fan of Parkway. This Belgian style ale pours hazy, golden brown with a head that fades and leaves no lace, but a tenacious little ring along the outside. The aroma is the usual for a Belgian; bananas, peaches and mild cloves atop a buttery malt. The flavor brings that malt to the foreground and it closes with a nice, peppery tingle.

Bottle from the last local swap - thanks! Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is grass, pepper, wheat, spices. Flavor is a bit odd, actually. Medium sweet, peppery, wheat. Medium body.
