2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasting at Matt’s, packaged 07/01/15
Amber color, small dissipating head. Very simple malt aroma and flavor, low bitterness; clean; nothing bad with it, just terribly boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ BBQ. Amber in color with white foam. As expected, a good bready malt character and some toasty malts as well. Light floral hop note, some baked apple ester, and a little bit of brown sugar. Kind of grainy for my tastes, but it’s not bad. Kind of bitter on the finish...okay.

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out herbal notes, some grassy notes and toasted bready malt. Flavour brings out bready malts and herbal notes. Pretty bland, but clean and drinkable. It’s okay, but very meh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Pours a brilliant clear amber, slightly off white head fizzles away quickly with not much lacing. Aroma is sweet toasted grain, some spice, dried fruits, hint of apple. Flavor is caramally and biscuity, light diacetyl note but not over the top. Lower bodied and easy to crush. Lingering sweetness on the palate. Sweeter than an Austrian "Maerzen". Blows a Boston Lager out of the water. 6 pack of this please.
