3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Getting ready for Game 7 (Rangers vs. Caps). Pours a hazy, deep amber brown. Medium off-white head, not much retention or lacking. Nose is caramel, dates, candied orange. Mouth is medium bodied, only slightly sweet for a barley wine, mouth is like the nose. Some bitterness to round it out with a touch of old pennies. Meh. Pretty uninspired but ’ll drink it anyway. Too distracted for rating beers anyway. LET’S GO RANGERS !!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
8th March 2015
Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Thin malts, touch of bitter toffee. Savoury bitterness in the mid. Trace of dry cream. Mild marmalade. Little spice and mild aniseed. Finishes semi dry and with juicy peel. Mild bitter linger. Not bad at all and drinks under it’s abv, but lacks the malt backbone to make it great.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Scents of malts with a touch of sweetness. Good medium copper brown with some foam. I let the beer sit for about 20 minutes to acclimate which really helps beers of this type so as to get all of flavor out. I experienced rich flavor of malt, a bit of cinnamon, spice, a touch of sweet but not too much which is perfect for me. The palate is really nice. Overall, I would definitely get this beer again.

Bottle. Orange pour with tan head. Hoppy grass and fruit flavors, hop tones with a touch of malty sweetness. Too hoppy for my taste in barley wines.
