3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle): Pours an amber with ruby tint, small white head. Sweet malty aroma with floral and citrus notes. Taste has strong fruity sweetness, malt, caramel with some earthy, floral notes coming through with the bitterness on the finish. Itís pretty good, a little too sweet - I prefer hobgoblin to this.

Clear dark brown body, small fizzy white head with slight lacing. Toasty crystal malt nose. Alcohol comes through immediately in the flavor along with sweet crystal malts, molasses / caramel. Aftertaste is very strong combo of the aforementioned. Full bodied, flat mouthfeel with lasting slighty bitter finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2 finger head ruby red mild/medium carbination. Smell is chocolate/toffee & hops. Taste is hobgobline but a lot stronger with the chocolate & toffee,a stronger sourness and you can tell its a BIT heavier. So a stronger & better version of Hobgobline cheerís!~ Really good. Starts off almost like a porter or stout! :)

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is very malty and surprised me when i took the first sip. Taste is of carmel, hops and alcohol. Slightly watery and ends very dry. I thought it would be more full bodied but instead was strong tasting with a light/alcohol palette.

Sweet but very mutely balanced otherwise. A bit more mellow than I was expecting. Itís a good beer, but lacks in bite for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a dark amber with a thin off white head and a decent amount of lacing. the aroma is slightly fruity with some red apple qualities maybe some dark fruits in there as well. the taste is mildy sweet some caramel notes with a sweet apple like finish and mild bitterness, there is some alcohol noticeable surprisingly, overall this ale is flavorful and easy to drink and not bad for the price.
