The aroma is very light, with toast, sugar, banana chips, and paper. Flavor of toast, grass, wet hay, sugar, banana, and wet leaves.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle received in a trade with awlcordell. A clear amber pour that has just a little foam. A sweet toffee and gentle fruit aroma. Caramel malts and that fruit are tasted first. It is a little like drinking candy. Some grain, earth, and soft hop notes. Caramel grows. This is a sweet drinking beer and is definitely on the pleasant side.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a bottle, stronger first taste. Sweeter beer with a tad of cloying. Foamy head about 1/8th in thick. Yes, probably close to 6%. Mild sweetwater smell. Stronger okto festy flavors, without being nasty. Has a tad of a kick on the cerebellum. Some co2. Finish is almost medicinal in nature.
