3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a muddy straw colored with a big fluffy white head that leaves enormous lacing. Aroma is strange with a weird grainy impression somewhere along the lines of fresh wort, like if something went wrong. Taste is more of the same. Not really drinkable... Meh,

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours a veiled orangeish dark golden with a very thick, very resilient white head. Aroma is herbal, grains. Flavor is grains, old cereals, dusty, maple/maple sugar. Finish is herbal, earthy/dusty, lemoney. Lingering herbal hops. Medium body. Felt it may have been a tad bit too much on the bitter side (rebound effect?), but it did hit the spot nonetheless.
