Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine with some roasty scents. Flavor is citrus mixed well with the sweet malt, nice hoppy taste on this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at brewpub. Big caramel malty nose with buttery diacetly (in a good way) and lots of leathery earthiness. Pours a beautiful burnished bronze with a thick ring of off-white head. Full and soft in the mouth. Slightly sweet and malty throughout with a nice spicy hop component that rises slightly in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 02-22-2013 at Pinglehead Brewery for RBWG. This draft beer’s appearance is a small beige head with a long retention, fast rising carbonation and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is pine hops, malt and semi-sweet. The flavor is pine hops, lightly bitter, caramel malt, and a little sweet. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable and not too hoppy tasting. This is a beer that I would drink again.

Actually more balanced than I was thinking it was going to be. A bit of burn but good balance.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof. Medium copper colored pour, medium thick off-white head. Diactyl-like butterscotch in the aroma with hints of vanilla. .Favor has some more of that butterscotch with some hints of caramel and vanilla. Tastes better than it smelled and improves as it warms. Thick enough mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is punch-you-in-the-mouth diacetyl, sweet with light vinegar. Clear, light cherrywood color, thin head. Bad tap. Buttery, sweetish, tannic, a little perfumy. Taste was much better than the aroma. Medium, silky body, stiff bittering in the finish. On tap, Proof, with PorterPounder.
