3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber in color with a khaki head. Sweet caramel and toffee malt notes with a nice floral, herbal, and piny hop aroma. Some toast, bread, and a hint of spice. The flavor is decently sweet and malt forward, but it is also somewhat bitter. A bit of herbal and floral hop character to go along with the pine. Plenty of toffee and caramel, as well as a bit of toast and bread.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 5.3%. Gusher even though it is quite cold. Nicely fruity hop aroma. Hazy brown colour, OK stable tan head. The flavour has some of the same fruity hop as the aroma along with a rather sharp bitterness. The mouthfeel is a little watery.

Aroma of malt and pine. Maybe a bit of citrus. Dark amber color with a light tan head. Starts with sweet malt, something complex in the middle, and a whole lot of hop for finish. Some malt goes along for the ride.
