3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper-brown with a small head that persists. Aroma of spiced candy apple. Flavor is the same, with some wood and toasted nut shell on the finish. Maybe some faint smoky caramel, but then again maybe I only wished it were there. Almost-medium body is a little too fizzy and finishes dryish

Sampled on draught at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. A deep copper colour with a thin head that does not last. The taste is of brown bread and toffee and is quite sweet. Some fragrant notes and little bitterness. A pleasant and well-made dunkel beer.
