3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of raisins, chamomile tea and honey. Must have been a old bottle as there were not a large amount of hops...at all. Taste was sweet with caramel and a bit tea like. Medium bubbles.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red-brown, maybe filtered. Lacy, foamy beige head. Smooth, fruity amber malt aroma. Rich and malt centered, despite a respectable hopping...nothing on Sierra in the regard. Still a pretty solid winter offering, brown and amber combination. Some faint vanilla, wood. Piny, soapy hop tastes, not so complex, but offer a steady bitterness. OK.
