2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Finally ventured beyond the void and purchased a bottle of this one, so here goes...
Into a snifter at just on cool. Bright copper with fine carbonation that is hasty in its ascent. Head little more than a wafer thin, compact pad of white that does hold. Biscuity sweet, malty and edged by notes of Ceylon tea, pumpernickel, burnt toast, rolled oats and puffed wheat is the breakfast cereal-esque aroma - drabby and stale. Unremarkable and honestly ho hum on the palate had me asking ’is this it!?’ Creamy, frothy, light and unconsuming on the palate. Burnt fruit dominates and is long lasting. Candyish but on the scorched side. Burnt toast, light tannins, overbrewed Earl grey and then its oily in the finish to boot. Residuallly sweet and sticky and generally not much fun to drink. ’I was up here now I am down there’ type of beer. Disappointing! ( 12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Bottle in LA. Pale amber, hazy, tiny head dissipates fast. Some malt and noble hop aroma, otherwise clean aroma. mildly sweet malt flavour, moderate bitterness. Hint of alcohol warmth. alcohol could sneak up you. Well balanced, easy drinking.

This was a surprisingly good beer very smooth easy to drink not hoppy and bitter plenty of good malty yeasty flavor would recommend.

Bottle from Gott’s in Palo Alto, CA. Malt and honey up front with a nutty mid and slightly bitter finish. Reminded me of something from Anchor. An American craft beer staple.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The foam is coarse and moderate. Fine small pearl bubbles rise from the glass, releasing good flavors of caramel. Lovely bock with good caramel malt as first impression. Fine nuances of fruit and a lovely and well-balanced hop bitterness contributes semi-dry finish. Nice and tasty bock, which certainly falls in my taste.

Rich malty and hop aroma. Dark Amber garnet pour. Malty and hoppy, flavor is really rich, hops balance it very well. Great malt finish.
