3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light pleasant nose, pale yellow-orange color, sticky head. Creamy caramelly malt with a low bitter. Fairly true to style and this one surprised me: it’s good. Clean palate and a decent balance.

Should appear on tap through early November, 2004. Told it’s not selling well. Not sure why, as I liked it. It is lightly hopped, and representative of the style, perhaps leaning on the milder side. Mild is what you want when you’re trying to sell beer in Times Square, frankly. I think the brewer’s done a capable job with this seasonal. Give it a try before it’s replaced by the IPA.
