2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is clear deep golden to amber with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is toasty and nutty, with a spicy clove yeast note. Taste is light toasted malt but definitely leans toward the spicy phenols. Nutty flavor is there, but restrained. Mouthfeel is fairly light, with a moderate carbonation. Finishes with a light nutty malt character on the tongue.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bleh. Alcohol taste dominates. Other than that it isn’t a good brew either. Kind of nutty but more sweet/tart. Just "bleh" literally all around. No clear flavors.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear dirty-orange ale with amber highlights and a small, brief, creamy, white head. The yeast-driven nose is spicy and lightly phenolic accompanied by a suggestion of chestnuts. Light to medium-bodied with nearly-expired carbonation. Tangy, nutty flavor, followed by a minerally, tangy finale. Bottle courtesy of my wife, Tinkerbell. Thanks for hauling this brew back home from St. Louis!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I didn’t like the aroma of it. It’s like tanned artificial bananas. The head is rather poor. Beer is clear, dark golden color. In taste there’s a bit of immature banana, quite sweet. It’s too much carbonated. In the end it’s even a bit sour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16.9 oz bottle poured into a stemmed Belgian tulip glass. The aroma is caramel, butter, sweet bread dough, and nuts. It pours a mostly clear, dark caramel orange color topped by a white, foamy head which reduces to a thick ring with a near full surface coating and leaves a light lace. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The creamy texture has a soft foam carbonation and a medium malty body. It finishes with notes similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some tropical fruit sweetness. The aftertaste is rather full bread and caramel, with some hints of nuts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an orangish copper with a very thin head and aromas of apple juice, toffee, and a little bit of cocoa. Flavor is initially fairly fruity depending on how it hits the palate it either stays that way or blossoms into a bit of a cocoa finish that is interesting. It’s a nice beer, but not really anything too unique.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber/brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light wheat and caramel malts, light toffee, nuts, hints of hops, notes of spices, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the worst beer, but not my favorite style.
