2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated based on notes taken 20 Dec 2011 -- Not sure what to think about this beer. The aroma is very promising, but the flavor doesn’t quite match. Disappointing. Might be travel tainted.

Aroma is citrus hops, lemon grass, straw and light carbonation. Taste is a light sweet maltiness that is followed by a slightly bitter aftertaste. A resinous finish. Appearance is a amber body with a very nice fluffy pearl head that retains well.

A decent amber ale, mostly light sweet malts and some hints of grassy and lightly citrusy hops. Nothing special, but not bad either.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice winter beer. Pours a cloudy orange. Smells great, hops balanced well with caramel. Taste is fruity and hoppy, but the hops are an interesting variety. A bit of a salty finish. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.
