3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle served in an imperial nonic pint glass. Hazy caramel color with a thick, foamy white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is grassy hops, spices, toast, and caramel. Flavor is slight citrus with a strong caramel and biscuit flavor. Well balanced. It has sort of a metallic flavor that seems kind of odd, other than that an really fantastic beer for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange-ish amber beer, medium bubbly white head. Nose is pretty weak, but I can pick out some mildly toasty malt, hops in the background. Flavor is a mix of mild malt, some toast, finishes with earthy hop bitterness, but that too is pretty mild. Quaffable, but boring.

Pint draught (keg) @ Lord Argoyle, Soho, London. Really big, thick head, sparkling, chilled.Taste has malts as in bitter but no bitter ending. I would rather call it dry, not bitter. Quite good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz single bottle into a pint glass, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Orange to amber and clear in appearance with a small, light tan head that lingers. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, earthy hops, grass, light pine and light herbal notes. Similar flavor, malty, toasty, light husky/grainy and somewhat rich with mild sweetness and a mild hop bitterness. Medium body with a lingering, light dry finish. Balanced and easy to drink, but a little boring overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated from old notes. A robust, medium bodied brew, copper in color, that maintains a smooth, creamy head throughout. Slightly sour over the tongue, fruity, with a pleasant strain of hops. Just a hint of alcohol warmth. Well balanced and very drinkable.
