3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle. Poured crystal-clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up toasty honey and grainy notes, with fresh grassy and herbal accents.. sweet overall.. solid. The flavor found bread and honey maltage at the core.. lemon zest, hay, and light herbal bitterness around.. finished a touch watery. Medium-bodied with decent balance on the palate.. good bock.

Big 750mL bottle courtesy of the uber generous douglas88. It pours crystal clear pure gold with thin near white head of foam. The aroma offers up a sweet mix of malts, grainy malts, corn, floral hops and a touch of apple like fruity esters. The taste delivers as sweet malts and corn to grainy notes mix with an adequate level of floral hop bitterness and flavor. Man, I am in the mood for this as it is drinkin’ gooood.

I missed this beer when it was in Chubbies but not it has returned in bottle form. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. A sweet bready nose with honey and light apple. A nice clean flavor of big sweet malts, some light biscuit, a bit of honey and banana, some cloves. Nice.

(Bottle) Clear gold, lasting white bubbles. Butter, sweet, artifician sugar, bad saccharin linger, no real redeeming qualities here.
