Like others experienced a lot of the contents was lost when the beer was opened. Might be because of the bottle conditioning. What do I know! Has a beautiful orange colour with a somewhat boring head. The aroma is wery fruity and malty. Has a nice bitter flavour, where the alcahol is dominant. In the aftertaste there is this great bitterness and I have notes of apples. Very pleasant acquaintance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
refreshing ale. Not that bitter. Seems to be offset by substantial malt, as noticed in aroma of head along with fragrant forest of hops, although less so in the drink itself. Features of a nutbrown in an amber colour. Bitterness and nuttiness and malt in aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lake Tahoe clear, deep amber brew with a light orange tint. Small, frothy, enamel-colored head. Quickly diminishes and leaves no lacework.
The nose is malty and sweet with notes of English toffee, alcohol and yeast.
The flavor is laden with fuzzy fruit (peach and apricot), caramel and alcohol up front. Nice, well-bittered hop presence on the backside. Moderately astringent as well.
Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation.
Lengthy, moderately bitter and alcoholic finish.
I enjoyed this brew! Not what I would consider a world-class effort, but very good nonetheless!
