2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle-pours a creamy tan/light brown head. Hazy deep orange/amber color. Aroma-puts off a lot of aroma. Sweet, sharp___(fruity syrup smell) possibly from plums or apricots, malty. Taste follows the aroma with the malt becoming a nutty malt. Seems like oak barreled. OK carbonation. Occasional, not to my taste but, nicely done. Date stamp on bottle was partially legible, approx 10/04. Other 6 packs in this store went back to ’03.
