3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iím a little overdue with drinking this one. Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. The aroma has a good amount of caramel and pine, with undertones of lighter spices and ginger. The taste is a bit sweet with some mild bitterness, with pine flavors standing out the most. Some citrus elements of lemon and grapefruit are noticed, with caramel remaining quite potent. Mild cinnamon as well. Aftertaste is a short and piney. Medium in body, with a thick texture, with softer carbonation. This one isnít bad. I canít really find many holiday or wintery impressions in here though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 02-19-2010 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy amber body, visible carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, very aromatic, citrus, and some pine hops. The Taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, and citrus hops. The Palate is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is one for the hopheads as the hops definitely make their presence known.

Bottle. Taste is caramel, lots of hops, grass, malt and a nice dose of booze. A hell raising good time in a bottle.

Associated Cityfresh, Bushwick growler: Pours a copperish amber with a white head. Aroma is pretty hoppy, somewhat piny, some light caramel style malts. Taste is quite bitter. Also somewhat lightly sweet. Hard to drink quickly. This is well-made but it ainít my favourite.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from the Craft Ale House in Limerick. Clear copper color with a soft and bubbly white head. The head leaves a cascading, sticky lace around the edges of the glass. Bright hops in the nose along with some hint of roasted malts. Clean and crisp flavors, with plenty of grassy and dry hops. I also tasted some caramel malt and some roasted malt flavors. Very clean and dry finish with more bitter hops in the aftertaste. Excellent imperial helles / pilsener.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent light copper with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly malty, grainy, and hoppy with a lightly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, only more semi-sweet than sweet. Average on the palate. Okay, but forgettable.
