3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
beautiful amber colored lightly hazed ale. not terribly heady with a nice aroma reminiscent of a catholic church after benediction and the use of incense. very smooth initially with a med to heavy bitterness down the tongue to the finish. med light mouthfeel.

Pours amber with a smallish, long lasting head. Caramel aroma. Earthy taste mixes with minerals and some sweetness. Interesting, well made beer I’ll be drinking again.

First 2 brothers I have tried and it was very good. Aroma was a bit lacking but still very tasty.

Not bad. Toasty woodsy caramel is about right. Not a ton going on but pleasant and mellow throughout. Barely enough hops to notice but i liked the malt and yeast character

Head was frothy whites that fully dissipated. The taste was uncarbonated, sweet malt with the smallest amount of funk. The nose was malty with a caramel and fruity aroma. The palate was smooth and medium bodied.

Ruby pour with dense white head. Malty aroma. Flavor is generally sweet with lots of caramel malt, a little spicy yeast. Some grass hop and bitterness in the finish. I like it, but the body gets a bit cloying.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is slightly hazy, with a deep amber body and a reddish cast beneath a short but creamy head of white foam. The nose is offers a combination of delicately toasty and straw-like grain with caramel and slight fruitiness. The body is medium-light with a zesty, very-fine bubbled carbonation. The flavor starts with bold, toasty and caramel malts upfront, followed by a splash of fruit (sour cherry, tangerine, plum) that fades into a rather dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium to light. The beer reminds me of a toastier and drier Irish ale. I loved it.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber with a pencil thin white head. Roasty caramel aroma. Malty, cereal with a bit corn. Mild hops. Clean finish.

Caramel/amber in color. Caramel, berries, and bread. A bit of hops shine through in the end and bring it around to being pretty well balanced out. A tasty beer, but not my favorite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a plastic cup. Aromas of toasted caramel and berry sweet are most noticeable with a late, light note of an old damp towel. It pours a clear brown orange color with a soapy white head. It retains nicely with a near solid pillowy surface coverage and an abundant, sticky lace. It tastes of a medium high sweet caramel syrup. This beer has a soft, subtle carbonation with a syrupy texture and a medium - full body. It finishes with primarily a toasty and roasted caramel note with some berries and a muffin character. There’s also some faint lactose and roasted nut. There’s a slight grain aftertaste with some caramel, but it’s a light and short aftertaste.
