3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 mL bottle purchased at Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma is a little fruity, before this takes on a little funk character in the nose. Brett and maybe a touch of lacto. A little sweetness behind. Not overly pleasant aroma, that is for sure. Mildly hazy amber body with a good khaki colored head. Very sweet, sugary start, before this becomes very spicy with the proverbial rye flavors. Some caramel. Lots of chewiness later on, which gives this a nice body. Finishes a touch ethanolic, but otherwise, this is pretty tasty with a ton of maltiness and rye. Interesting, but the aroma for some reason just seems incongruent with the beer and the flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Craigs big Edinburgh tasting, this bottle courtesy of ’Craig’, thanks mate. Shared in company of Craig, Stella, Jan, Charlotte, Fritz and Loz 30.10.10 Hazy amber pour with a slight orangeyness also in looks and a white bubbly head. Bit boozy, very sweet, some bitterness, bit sticky. I found this fine but nothing special, yes there were hops and a distinct maltiness but it never stood out from the crowd as I hoped it would.
