3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - cage corked 750 ml bottle. Slightly hazy dark golden with a nice thick, sticky off-white head with a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some buttery and vanilla notes, a hint of yeast. Full bodied flavor with some nice raw cake mix accents, a bit of honey sweetness, some buttery notes. Nice full mouthfeel. Put off buying this as I figured I would come across it on tap on my trip to Utah - no such luck.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled two years ago, but stored in a dark 68 degree area for 18 months or so it’s been in my possession. I mention this because on one hand I think this beer might have turned a bit, but reading through the reviews, plenty of them mention an overly sweet taste, and mine is almost syrupy. Smells faintly of citrus, but also rusty water. Plenty of carbonation and lace left, though, so maybe this is just far more sweet and sticky than I prefer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is nice fruitiness along with some bready malts and mild herbal notes. Flavour is grass, mild fruitiness along with bready malts as well as some slight toffeeish notes. Easy to drink, but also more interesting than your standard pils’. Hides the abv quite well.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is the color of apple cider with a thick, setting body. The head holds a foamy, respectable white ring around the perimeter of the glass. It tastes intitially almost like apple cider. The aroma is.carmaly fruity. The flavor is sweet carmely bitter malt. Its better than ok, but not good.

Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet grapefruit nose and flavor is grapefruit and caramel. Higher ABV is hidden. Worth trying. $8.49 for a caged and corked 750ml bottle from Hannaford’s Concord, NH.
