3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11/10/02: Aroma is of sweet malt---caramel overtones...Color is whisky with medium head and light drizzly lace...Flavor is sweet up-front, followed by a two-pronged statement by lightly roastier malts and well-judged hoppiness. Finish is a reprise of initial sweetness and the hop-dryness coats the entire back half of the mouth...Body is medium; this has a nice layering of flavors...If there is something lacking, it is a degree of richness in the overall profile...but there is a good spectrum of elements featured here...Very drinkable...
