3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Clear copper with a short head.
Red apple fruitiness in the nose with maybe some metal notes; simple malt, little aroma hops, but clean. Medium-light body, a little syrupy across the middle, growing bitterness late. Nice flavor balance, but it’s nothing to demand your attention.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4oz pour at the Max’s Taphouse Beer Camp event. Pours a clear orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose has a real distinct grainy character, nutty like peanut skins, plenty of yeasty dough, a bit of buttered toast. Flavor is spot on, yeasty bread, flicks of orange, some biscuit. Clean finish. So true to style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brilliant copper under a thin foamy white head. The nose is very biscuity and grainy-earthy. The flavor is a tad bit large and bold for its style, which I have no problem with, but the flavor profile itself is a bit too toast and biscuit for my taste, with amber grains and a lager yeasty finish. A bit doughy sweet throughout.
