3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Spicy hops manage to protrude from this powerful brew’s almond-laced caramel malts, building a nuanced, if unmemorable, sipper.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam bobs atop the glowing amber.
-This is more effervescent than the average for the region, but it actually helps in this case.
-This is drier than expected, which increases drinkability.
-Marzipan notes roam about.
On tap at the brewery restaurant.

Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet matly with strong notes of caramel and fruit, and lesser notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits, and light notes of alcohol, leading to a dry bitter end, where the alcohol still is present.
