3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 Draft. Nice, thin but firm, clingy head over a straight brown body. Caramel sweet malt, but just a hint of stoutish coffee malt. A nice fresh hops taste (30 IBU) matches nicely. Honey taste arrives at the roof of the mouth, and makes for a lightly sticky aftertaste.

Dark orange-red with a grand white head. Clover honey aroma, with sweet malts intermixed. Mildly sweet flavor, with the honey characteristics (slight stickiness) mainly found at the tail end of the flavor trail, along with some nutmeg and cinnamon. Very mildly bitter, and very easy drinking.
