2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is sweet and nutty with floral hops, yeast, caramel, toffee, and fruit. The appearance is hazy amber with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma but more bitter than expected. The palate is thin. Overall a pretty good example of the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a white head. Very heavily carbonated. Aroma is of caramel, bread, fruit, and spice. Taste is of malt, caramel, weak fruit, bread, and spice. Very dry breadiness to the whole mess. Lingering spice taste. Too damned bready. It wasn’t a beer I had to choke down, but I did not enjoy drinking it.
