12oz. Can. Pours clear, fizzy and dark amber. Aroma is fruit flavors and bold. Taste is heavy, hoppy and bitter. The finish is strong and malty, and the alcohol content seems exact. Great beer...

Aroma: citrus is the dominate aroma. Also some pine and bread dough.
Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied, not much carbonation, and sticky. Finish is somewhat astringent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich, deep plum color. Not enough head to be noteworthy. Aroma is lacking, so gotta go middle of the road there. Medium bodied. Balanced bitterness with the malt and a hint of mint. Is that haiku? No. Spicy finish. Ha.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz can from Central Market, 11/18/13
Aroma: The nose is on the lighter side, some caramel/toffee and a little pine/citrus
Appearance: It pours a clear caramel-red color with an off-white head and plenty of lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, with caramel malts, and light-medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it feels a hint thin, with a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
This beer has an alright flavor to it, and it drinks fine, but it certainly isn’t anything impressive. This is the first of a 6-pack, so maybe my opinion will change, but at this point I am not particularly impressed.
