3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Beverage Castle, Tampa.
Has a bit of a fresh scrubbed glass, cleaning solution aroma, but that is muted. Stronger aromas include fruit and malt and a bit of caramel and sugar. The body is an orange tinted dark brown and holds a well formed thumb thick head that is quite lasting and very substantial looking. Medium sweetness with some very noticeable alcohol that gives a sort of dry chemical bitterness. Some dark fruit notes and a suggestion of spice. Finishes with some hop bitterness. Fairly decent, but the alcohol seems entirely too harsh for a relatively low 6% abv beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby with a weak tan head. Sweet floral aroma, some licorice. Disappointing flavor. Decent but not exceptional. Great label but not a great beer.
