Rating #839 - December 17, 2013 -Beer 17 from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong citrus/floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.

BeerAdvent 2013 Day Seventeen. Not a gusher. Hazy copper with tiny floaty bits, off-white lasting head, Pine citrus caramel on the nose, flavour is caramel orange tannic and quite quite bitter... my best guess is that some trub was bottled and Iím getting specks of solid hops; sounds like others had it worse though (nyah nyah I had a drinkable Advent Beer and you didnít).

Bottle, Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2013. Extremely carbonated pour, resulting in ALL foam, requiring a good 5 minute interval to settle somewhat. Aroma is very phenolic, medicinals and plastics. Flavour is dominated by the same. Could this possibly what they were aiming for? Iíd normally think this is an infected mess but I see that my experience is not singular...

Day 17. A little rough patch for the calendar. Another day a little thin on the flavor. A sniff of hops in the finish but not much else the whole way through.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz brown bottle. Bit of a gush but into the glass poured a deep orange hazy liquid. Huge whipped cram-ish white head. Nose has a lemony hop note. Taste has caramel and a touch of citrus hops but a bit watery. Quick citrus hop note at the end with mild bitterness and mild caramel lingering. A bit empty overall. Nice nose and appearance but lacks flavour. At least the 7% alc isnít showing.

Ruby pour, huge enormous lasting head that I eventually scooped out. Smell is putrid like rotting cabbage. Taste is quite bitter, lots of vegetables, undrinkable. Also completely acidic and my bottle was only 3/4 full. Thanks

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear copper with massive, gushing from the bottle off white head. Aroma was of rotting leaves. Taste was hard to pick out due to the excessive carbonation but it was rough, slightly bitter and brackish and actually undrinkable in the end. Drain poured the rest. Judging by some other good rates I mustíve gotten a bad bottle but clearly Iím not the only one.

Advent 17. Surprised at the high ratings. I must have got a bad bottle. Reddish brown with a giant lasting head that takes the bottle a while to pour. Flavour was dusty and horrid. One sip was it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle that says 7%. Huge puffy off-white head whit an amber-red body. Aroma is grapefruit and toast, and maybe some peppermint. Big citrus flavours in the body with a bready malt balance. Finish is bitter with orange rind and grapefruit lingering. Iím also getting peppermint throughout the body and finish. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a reddish amber with a light tan head. Aroma is piney hops. Taste is roasted and nutty up front. Interesting roasted coffee finish. Very robust for a red ale. I've tasted stouts less robust. A good one off.
