Clear reddish-brown beer with a bubbly head which quickly dissipates (this may be because I had to cart it home in my backpack.) Nutty malt scent with a flavour to match, as well as having a bit of fruit in there and a rich, earthy chocolate taste in the aftertaste. A pity it went a bit flat but very nice all the same.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours thin from pint bottle with large but very weak head, almost foamy like an ALB. Reddish brown to amber color. I got a very distinct aftertaste from this and after pouring it into my glass warm I finally picked up on the scent, it is exactly like a Tootsie Pop right when you are reaching the inside. Which brings me to the taste. Very fruity but very easy to drink, wan’t getting much nuttiness. Fruity but not zesty and sharp like an IPA. Not a bad beer but it’s mediocre all around and just as watery without as much biting carbonation so easier to drink even than an ALB (American Light Beer).

Clear brown pour with short lived white head. Good balance between sweet and bitter. Lacked complexity, bit boring.

Eye: pours a cola brown color with a rather quickly dissipating white to beige head and medium to low carbonation.
Nose: sweets, cassis, berries

Palate: milky, oat meal, somehow dusty, and nuts as well as nut shells and leaves
Overall: nice beer, not as chewy as I expected it to be.
