3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Lightly hazed golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Malty aromas of toffee and caramel with some earthy and medicinal notes as well. Malty, caramel and toffee flavor. Hopped just enough to prevent the sweetness from becoming overbearing. Medium to full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and middle-of-the-road carbonation. Caramelized, sweet finish. It’s a malt bomb! Reminiscent of a Märzen or Maibock, but both of those are lagers and one of them is an autumn (not spring) seasonal.

Bottle @ home. Pours a clear, burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Toasty, bready, caramel malty, earthy hoppy aroma. Creamy, somewhat floral, mostly earthy hoppy, moderately bitter, grassy, caramel malty flavor. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Craft. Hazy dark straw/copper pour with nose of caramel malt, mild hops, fruit. Tastes of bready caramel malt, not terribly complex, with some fruity and mild hops, but not much palate heft. Meh.

Bottle@ukulele freakout BBQ, the jungle, Kaua’i, 21/08/12. Er, copper with a well behaved several-finger bloom of foam. Soapy cherry, sweet hay aroma. Pretty flavourless with hints of nothing, old rusty metal, marzipan, stale boiled sweets. A dull beer to accompany a pretty exotic experience.
