3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Overall not a bad beer, but calling it an "old ale"??? For 2 hops and 3 grains it sure tastes more like 3 hops and 2 grains. Good dry heavy hopping with just an average mouth feel. Some grain and certainly caramel but the grain just doesn’t seem to come through like it’s supposed to. More like ESB.
Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is caramel, piny hops, some toffee, some booze, mostly hoppy and different. Appearance is reddish brown, light tan head, clear. Taste is caramel, pine, earthy hops, dark fruit, toffee, spices, it's hoppier than normal but still good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, bitter caramel hoppy dark fruit aftertaste. Overall, it's different for the style but a nice change. Cakes (498) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2017

pours dark reddish brown with white head. the aroma is citrus, spices, some alcohol. The flavor is malty, with roastyness, small hints of some seasonal spices with earthiness and slight citrus finishes sweet and caramel. the body is light with bitterness throughout. Overall very pleasant to drink nice to have on a cold day.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a large bottle. Pours a nice dark coppery color with nice fluffy head. Great aromas from the malt bill on this guy, not overpowering on the spice aroma. This beer is nice and smooth, but has a nice complex kick to it! Cheers! beerplace (2330) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2016
