3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Much better than I expected. Especially after following a dogfish head 90. Pours a Carmel color with a more pronounced head than expected. One of the best aromas I’ve enjoyed in an IPA. Nice hoppy start, with a peculiar after taste that I couldn’t put my finger on, but like it as a differentiater. Was a little over carbonated, but scored better than expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma is your standard beer aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter at first and then yields to a slight sweet and crisp beer. Does have any strong seasonal spices to it, which I like! Nice, easy drinking seasonal!

I really liked this Ale. I've not been a Widmer fan until this week be. Hops are noticeable but not overpowering and the flavor hits on the back side of the tongue. Nice color and medium head. Very good seasonal beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, frothy solid beige head, streaks of lace. Nice aroma of malt and hops. Taste is strong malt that adds sweetness as it moves through the palate to a creamy, medium-length, pine hopped finish. A big filling brew, but also quite good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at hophead. Dark red colour. Low carbonation. Malty aroma with trace of hope notes. Taste is rich malty with enough non-agressive bitterness on back. Good balance but bit too simple imo.

Clear, light copper.
Medium body, light flavor, smooth texture, very long palate.
Moderately bitter but not too dry, good acidity but not what one expects in a red ale.
Holiday spices, hoppy, herbal, some malt in background.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Tastes like booze, pine hops, caramel, resin, malty, and dry grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, booze, caramel, and nutty malt.
