Bottle, craft beer advent calendar day #8, shared with my wife. Deep golden colour with a puffy eggshell head that retains nicely. Lovely bready aroma and flavour, light caramel. The finish has some oxidized papery notes, but this is otherwise quite pleasant.

From the 5 liter can. Nice amber color. A rich aroma of fruits, caramel, toffee. Thick, rich malt favor with tons of caramel, butterscotch, and toffee, fruits, a bit of cardboard. Smooth, mild. This started off fantasticly, but got very cloying as I worked my way through the pint.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A touch on the sweet side, and the aroma is a bit docile, but I have to admit it’s quite delightful...if the nose were more assertive and the finish more snappy, this could be a 4+ brew. And maybe when it’s very fresh it is indeed at that level.
