3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can. Pours bright copper, clear with a small white head. Nose is grassy, slightly earthy, but very mild. Taste has a bit of graininess, some light maltiness, and tinge of bitterness on the end. Not much alcohol bite. Pretty plain and without any one standout quality. Very drinkable though and goes down very smooth. After my 4 pack is done I’ll probably not search this one out again though.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I wanted this to be something more... and it was. Moreover, it was different. The aroma is a bit fruity and only slave ghtly musty. The color is caramel and somewhat thin. A white head vanishes after 2 sips and the beer draws down clean. The taste is strong but tastes much like nothing in particular. Go figure. At last the carbonation is refreshing on the palate. Well, go drink one, and experience refreshment with a surprising lack of certainty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a clear caramel amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of bread with some backing sweet grains and a hint of underlying light fruits. Flavor is a bit bland with notes of bread and grains with the slightest hint of light fruit in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(growler thanks to mar) cloudy burnt umber with a lasting creamy off white head. Nose of ripe banana, toasty caramel, a bit funky not in my favorite way. Taste is very straightforward ripe banana, caramel, bit of light spices, cinnamon. Finish is a bit watery. Not much like a biere de garde for me.
