3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This is a very good ale that pours a cloudy, ruby color. The nose is pleasant and fig-sweet/hoppy. The tastes are lightly of citrus and piney hops and the mothfeel is a cloudy graininess. If there are fruits in the palate they are figs or plumbs. The smooth, medium mouthfeel leaves a light to moderately bitter tail. This brew was hoppy enough that I thought it was a malty APA. Overall, this is a balanced and superb brew. Perhaps it is just a bit too sweet.

Pours a nice red amber with a little whitish head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with a little bit of hoppiness. Flavor is nice and sweet and smooth with some nice subtle hop finish. Covers the 6.6% very nicely. Overall I thought this was a very good beer.

This was legit. amber in color with thick white head that disappeared pretty quickly when poured from the bottle. caramel, butty, malty aroma as well as taste. add some hops to the taste as well. easy slidin down and slightly bitter finish but not enough to make me make a face. parfait.
