3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle at Taco Mac, Perimeter. THWG! Pours dark brown, with ruby hues, and a medium beige head. The aroma is caramel malts, cardamom, and some spicy and resinous hops. Sweet and malty flavor, with some nicely balanced pilsener-esque hoppy bitterness. Medium body, lively, and a little chalky. Overall, this is a nice, warming, spicy, and surprisingly complex beer. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear & light amber, frothy but quick head. Carmel and chocolate roast malt in the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is continues the roasted malt ride, not too dark. Finish starts sweet, but dries out the back. Balanced for the alcohol level.

Bottle. Pours medium amber with an off white head that quickly recedes to the edge of the glass where it clings. Scent is caramel malt, dark fruit. Alcohol in the nose. Taste is sweet, just a touch of pine hop and a mineral finish.

11 oz bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Polotmavy tick! Pours a clear amber color with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is a mix of pale lager, light fruity candy and very faint citrus. Taste is sorta bland. A light fruitiness added to a pale lager. Ok overall.
