3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A lightly spiced caramel aroma. Reddish amber color with a ring and a smear for head (white). Thin to medium body with light, fizzy carbonation. Lightly roasted caramel with light, spicy hop. Actually tastes pretty good. Finishes out with lightly hoppy, lightly bitter, lightly caramel, lightly everything. Sort of refreshing, and probably very good for summertime.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark rusty brown colored body, clear. Nose is pale and transparent maple-centered... some nutty hops, chewy caramel and cedar flavored malt... not terribly impressive, very subdued and quiet nose, when it could be more assertive. Flavor is cracked grains, some scotch-like malts, maple, rum, tobacco, etc... but not really interesting at all. A light bit of roast seems out of place, and as far as the wheat character is concerned, I guess I missed it entirely.
