3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, wispy, stubborn, white head. The aroma furnishes notes of orange blossom honey, marmalade and biscuit accompanied by a lightly earthy factor. Full-bodied with restrained carbonation. The flavor is a swirl of marmalade, toffee, honey and a mild notation of earthy bitterness. The sweet, malty finish is a touch medicinal.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that has a copper hued core and supports a modest tan head of foam. The aroma offers up caramel malts, biscuit like malts and thin soft sweet smelling pear and apple fruity esters. The taste delivers a blend of caramel malts, biscuit malts, a bit of roasted malts and then mild vague bitter hoppiness. To midway a thin layer of fruity esters surfaces with sweet notes like pears, red apples and figs come to the surface. This various malts and mild fruity esters hang on deep into the after taste. Pretty nice.
