3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle] Pours a clear golden caramel with a medium but dissipating off-white head. Aroma is sweetish caramel malts, enough chocolate malt to give a nice deep red color and toasty aroma, definitely some oak, and not a lot else. The flavor is nice and oaky, lightly sweet, toasted malts, and really not much else. The mouthfeel is surprisingly full, the carbonation is medium but soft. The finish is short, balanced, and just a slight hint of bitterness. I enjoyed this one, actually.

From a bottle. Aroma is spicy and moderate. Flavor is fruity, sppicy, and just a little bitter. Canít believe they were able to pack this much punch and complexity into a 4.2 abv session ale. A commendable job.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, best by 6/10/12. Thin off-white head. Clear light brown / amber color. Some lace. Nice crisp carbonation, good dry texture. Very drinkable indeed. Nice, balanced malty and hoppy aroma, with a decent lightly oaky herbal malty-hop aftertaste. Nice mild bitter taste. Itís hard to find a good session ale, but Iím a fan of this one. Very satisfying and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a rapidly diminishing white head. Aroma is decent and is bready and nutty. Taste contains caramel and bread, with some nutty and grain undertones. Nothing is very overpowering. Rather all flavors are subtle. Aftertaste is a bit earthy. Very well balanced, white palate is a bit thinner. But very easy to drink. This isnít your summer beer that you can drink all day. Rather, this is probably your autumn beer that you can drink all day.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear copper with a small white head. The aroma is weak, with light bread notes, some floral hops, and a vegetal woodiness. Light on flavor, with cereal, what seems like Saaz hops, and light, fresh wood. Crisp finish, some bitterness. Not bad, very mild indeed.
