3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a goblet. Thanks Dave N. Aroma is a nice malt spice with a light hop. Pour is a nice dark hazy honey, with a very light head. Taste is a spice, sweetness with a malt back. Finish is a warm spice. A very good ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Golden with small head. Not particularly spicy or yeasty, and kind of lacking personality. Not awful, but just needs more flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a moderate rocky beige head. Grainy malt aroma with citrus notes. Tangy toasted malt flavor has hints of baked bread, citrus hops and earthy yeast. Medium bodied and flavorful with an underlying fruitiness. Finishes with light citrus and spicy hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color out of the bottle with a quickly disappearing white head and a light, sweet spicy nose. Honey sweetness with coriander spice, Mandarin orange and some orange marmalade on homemade bread. Highly carbonated. Okay beer, but not my favorite style.

Pour is a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is a earthy, toffee malt with some caramel. Flavor is caramel malt, some mild dark fruit and a mild spice. Finish has some dark breadyness. This was a decent and different beer.

Aroma is spicy yeast, citrus and hints of sugar and white bread. The flavor is spices, candy/sugar, malts and a mildly hoppy/slightly dry finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle, bonused to me by BrewtopiaofPJ (thanks Mark), pours a hazy rusted golden with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out traditional French biere de garde notes - some farmhouse notes, some tarnished metal, and some skunky notes. Flavour is more of the same, with old farmhouse notes, some earthy notes, and some vegetal notes. Very light-bodied and seems a bit "off". Never been a fan of this style, and this one certainly hasn’t converted me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Clear dark gold pour with thin white head. Light spicy aroma, grainy and peppery, very fresh, light fruitiness. Palate is very clean and very crisp, fresh grain, mild spicyness, ever so slight fruitiness, very lager like, bright. Palate is dry, alcohol is well hidden, medium carbonation. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer from trade with jrgratz (though the bottle looks more pedestrian than the picture here). Thanks! Pours clear copper with small white head. Aroma smells like a lager/marzen. Sweet malt with a hint of spice. Flavor has up front yeast funk with a bit of spice and bitterness. Lingering funk on the palate. Light mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Not bad.
