2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out metallic coppery notes, biscuity notes and some slight hops. Flavour brings out metallic hoppy notes, residual sugar, and rock candy. Not very refine by any means, leaving a slightly cloying sweetness and a metallic quality. Not great, but not terrible either.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Brouwers. Pours clear dark reddish amber with thin creamy head. Aroma is sweet boozy dark caramel malt with punchy bitter hops. Taste is strong sweet roasty caramel malt with sharply bitter piney hops. The malt profile is spot on for a beer this size... could use a bit more hops to balance it out. My first Spinnaker brew, I’m impressed.
