3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Served a clear amber-orange color with a thin finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some biscuit and some pine and floral hops.
T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malt with a bit of buttery biscuit malt and some pine hope. Through the middle some bitterness comes through with a bit of floral hops and some sweeter malts. The finish is a mix of sweet malt with some light pine hop and bitterness.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice malt and hop balance with a good English touch.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Triple Rock. It pours a gold color with a small white head. The aroma is weak with berries and light caramel. The flavor is spicy with light toffee and a touch of tea leaves before a medium bitter finish. Light bodied. Lack of aroma and weak flavor kills this one for me. My least favorite Triple Rock offering so far.
