From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a reddish gold with an off white head. Fruity hop aroma. Mellow hop backbone with some nice hop character. Smooth as a baby’s bottom.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle. pours a clear amber under a large, whipped, beige head. sweet, malty, worty, maris otter, cereal malty goodness with a distinct floral hop. just enough floral/citrus hops to balance the residually sweet, worty tasting, toasty caramel malt flavor. is this beer for real? it tastes like a bowl of oatmeal covered in rich honey, brown sugar and syrup with a big, fat, handful of aroma hops and a fresh dry hopping session. not very traditional, but when you make something this good, i suppose you can call it whatever you want.

Keg @ Mikkeller & Friends. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is red fruits, toasty malt, brown bread. A bit of nut and caramel. The taste is more red fruits, strawberry jam. Smooth, rich toffee and nut. Some glazed donut sweetness. Medium body, smooth and easy to drink. A pleasant malty brew. Solid.
