3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brownish color with a medium head. Malty aroma with a little bread. Strong malty flavor, lightly yeasty, and some fruit along with that. Some orange and what I thought was coriander when it was cold, but that seems to have faded with temperature rising. A bit of apple.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma has spices, fruit (blueberries), malt, and pine. The appearance is deep mahogany with a small head. The flavor is not as complex. It has some spice but but it’s not sweet like I was expecting and has almost non of the other qualities besides malt. The finish is bitter. The palate is thin but somewhat smooth from carbonation. Overall it smells better than it tastes.
