3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours red/brown with no head. Aroma is molasses, cotton candy, grapefruit (very faint). Taste is sweet - malt is center stage here. Some belgian candi type notes here and the molasses kicks in as well. A little too sweet and not enough spice for me.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 Aroma is very malty, caramel, nutty, toasty. Pours clear copper brown. Small tan head. Flavor is malt, caramel, toast, roast, nuts, bitter roast, slight spicy hop character. Very nice. Slightly medicinal in the aftertaste. Light, smooth body. I’d recommend it to a pal.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Some interest at first sip, quickly turns thin and uninteresting. Watery palate. Devolves into a very average beer.

Gatlinburg bottle. I’m not terribly familiar with altbiers but this seemed nice enough. Good caramel notes throughout with a little bitterness for balance. Maybe a slight metallic hint though. Fine.
