2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Foco a while back. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a light brown head. Mild diacetyl, toasty, mild caramel malty, somewhat piney/herbal hoppy aroma. Yikes- notes of diacetyl and DMS - cooked veggies, butter- along with toasted malts and earthy, slightly piney hoppy flavor. Not good at all.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Sprecher. Poured crystal-clear coppery-amber with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma was on the sweeter side with toasted redder fruits and caramel leading.. touches of honey and vanilla accented.. sugary-sweet, but for the most part enjoyable. The flavor was sweet as well, again with the caramel and fruity notes.. peppery alcohol and crisp floral bitterness laced throughout.. prickly carbonation and spicy hops on the finish.. decent balance. Medium-bodied with lower-than-expected carbonation on the palate.. this tried to have a crisp feel, but the sweetness stuck in a few places.. OK flow.
