2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle, #286 of 500, from the Depot in Hillsborough. Good aroma, sweet. Pale golden yellow color, big head, spotty lace. sweet flavor, light body, thin creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation, abrupt finish, tad spiced. OK, pepper and cardamom show themselves in the aroma, not as much in flavor. definately crisp. interesting offering. aroma best part. Finding this, this time of year, I dunno, maybe better received in June than December..

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Limited edition bottle. Pours a golden color with a moderate white head. Definitely a very spicy nose on this. Hints of sweetness underneath the flavor, though the spice dominates the brew.
