Bottle. Medium amber with a thin head. Aroma is malty with a light bitterness. Flavor is is nutty malt with a very dominant bitter hop base. Not complex but nice. Overpriced though

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thin white head on a copper brown clear beer.
Light aromas of toffee, caramel, wet grassy hops and a little citrus.
Toffee and toasted bread, give a good malty backbone. Fresh crisp hop bitterness gives a good bite, wet grass, grapefruit and a little pine resin.
The finish is a little mocha, and definitely chewy. Leaves a great lingering flavour of toasty malt.

Copper in color with an off white head. Decent lacing. Sweet malt nose, albeit weak. Perhaps some floral hops in there. Strong hops up front, fades and mixes with sweet caramel malt. A bit thinner than expected.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a translucent coppery brown colour with a two- to three-finger light beige coloured head that retained well for quite a while but eventually reduced to a collar of bubbles. Laced poorly, only a few spots. Carbonation high with very small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of very sweet caramel malt with faint hops. Taste dominated by hops although there is sweet caramel hidden underneath; a bitter-sweet taste throughout. Medium body. Long lasting very bitter finish with a bitter tingle on the tongue all the beer. A good beer but not really my style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep amber with a ruby cast. Nice head with long lasting lacing. Nose is of sweet malt against a hop, mostly spruce, background. Light medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Normal carbonation level. Not very flavorful, but it does have a nice moderate hop bitterness. Finishes smoothly with a pleasant hop bitterness that lingers.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Cloudy reddish brown with frothy offwhite head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, butterscotch, toasted malt. Taste is smooth and sweet - toffee, etc. The piney hops kick in at this point as well - nice and bitter. Thin body. Overall, a nice winter ale; it’s great when it hits the tongue, but then it gets thin really quick, leaving you a bit disappointed.
