3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This reddish amber beer poured with a medium off-white head that dissipated fairly quickly. There is a pleasant caramel malt flavor with a short bitter hop finish snd a longer lasting fruit and malt aftertaste. The mouthfeel is lively and carbonated. Very refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Bottle (BB Feb 09). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, malt syrup, cookie, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. A tired, rough, uninspiring example. The brewers seem to just be phoning this in.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biggish offwhite head. Amber body with light carbonation. Light earthy caramel aroma with faint papery notes and some hops at the far back. Dry earthy caramel taste. Clean, sharpish mouthfeel. Bitter earthy caramel aftertaste with grassy hop notes and a touch of wood. Good, but the taste is very subdued. If there were more of it this could be really great; as it is it’s OK. (0.5l bottle at Cardinal.)
