3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Poured a hazy coppper-yellow color with a tight white head that faded to a thin layer. Aroma of honey, bread, a soft fruitiness, and a faint hoppiness. Smooth, light honey sweetness quickly moves into a grassy hoppiness with a soft spiciness that is paired with some alcohol that lingers into the finish. Light carbonation and smooth mouth feel with a slight bite from the hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden with a thin laceful cap head. Malty aroma of toast...and little else. Flavor was of boozy lager yeast, dry toast, and dough. Sure this isn’t a doppelbock? It’s really bready and boozy. Would be awesome of I were trying to be a monk.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow pour with thin white head on tap at the brewery, aroma brought notes of crackery and biscuit malts, slight floral, grassy hops in there with a touch of spice and an earthy quality. Taste is fairly clean, hints of floral and grassy hops going into a big sweet but tasty biscuit and crackery middle, touch of earth and spice notes finishes fairly clean.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold pour - nose of honey, lightly herbal hops, a little bit of butter - flavor is medium sweet, with very lightly grassy noble hop character - a bit of floral and herbal notes - a little bit of a buttery note on the tail end - surprisingly subtle for this brewer - I like it.
