3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Aroma is malty with caramel along with some hops and a slight sour smell to it. Pours a dark transparent gold with a decent head but not the greatest retention. Big sweet and malty taste with big caramel flavor lasting throughout. There is a slight bitterness that barely sneaks thru in the finsih. Lightly sweet aftertaste. A little on the sweet side but still very good.

Golden colour. Fruity (!) aroma. Malty fresh flavour. Quite sweet. Initial taste and primary aftertaste very good. However after a while the only taste you are left with is a dull sweetness and sticky lips.

The aroma is sweet hoppy with strong notes of caramel. The color is dark yellow and it has a fine lasting white head. The flavor is sweet malty with subtle hints of hops and caramel leading to a smooth hoppy bitter end.

This is the kind of beer that makes Autumn my favorite season of the year. Drinkable, crisp, refreshing, and flavorful, this beer is sure to please the drinker with its delicious fall flavor and mouthfeel. Great color, perfect for the cooling nights of the season or an afternoon football game.

I kind of like this beer when I can get it in fresh condition. Pretty well balanced flavor and not overly bitter. Nice with a good schnitzel.

Bottled. Bright yellow with a shiny white head. Sweet aggressive flavour. Sticky sweet flowery flavours that aren’t that appealing. Bitterness as soapy/sudsy and a you feel like you’re drinking sweetened bubble-bath.
