3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating No. 777. Bottle. Malty and mildly bitter aroma, dark amber body with a clingy creamy beige head. Very avg and typical with respect to bitterness and mild ale fruitiness AND crispiness and mouthfeel and caramel base. A nice layer of dark earthiness, though. Medium body seems watery at times. Decent avg session brew.

This is a very smooth novice friendly ale. It goes down easy and definitely warms you up. At four plus dollars per bottle in Arkansas, it is worth trying. Especially for Halloween. Not as satisfying as Sam Smith Winter Welcome, but for a few more weeks it will do.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this one for halloween... oooh scary bottle lol! Slightly dark yet opaque red pour with a moderately thick and lasting tan head. Sweet malt and caramel aroma with a bit of chocolate. Medium bodied with some creaminess. Hops slightly bittering leading to a malty middle. Finish is bitter but watered down. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cherry red pour with an off-white head. Sweetly roasty caramel nose. Lots of roasted malt and maybe a dash of orange fruitiness. Nicely balanced hoppily bitter finish,with some biscuity notes in the afternose. Dark and roasty for a premium bitter/ESB, but I’m not complaining.

This beer IMHO is way better than the 55 % it is showing. I liked the sweet malty flavor with a bit of chocolate. Good sweet finish

Clear brown with amber hues. Aroma of sweet caramel malts. Flavor is sweet malt, but not intrusive. Well balanced, but doesn’t really stand.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: poured a deep coppery brown colour with a thick beige head which fell back leaving a still but glossily attractive pint. Sweet malty aroma, and a rounded malt taste, the hops are not intrusive, and the finish sweet but strong.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Dark amber with little white head. Roasted malts - caramel - little sweetness & easy hops. Not very filling. Dry easy bitter finish. Not the worst beer in its category! However average!
