look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: interesting marriage of roasted malts and flowering yeasts; almost perfumy esters are released at the pour... Appearance: thin off-white head that sits on a burnt orange body; tracings are negligable.... Palate: edium-bodieed; a bit crunchy as an ale would present, but also finishes at the throat... Taste: more hops than malts, but the malts show up late--not a big-tasting ale at all... Overall: Alts are always an odd tweener--thee hybrid linebacker of the beer world--and this one is representative, with an Oktoberfest/Munchen flavor and a freshness that throws some ale weight into it....

Pours to a thick buff head and clear copper color. Aroma presents a sweet, spicy hop nose with Munich malt and hint of English toffee (or seems like it). Flavor is perfectly balanced with hop bitterness, malt sweetness, noble hop flavors, warm, toasty, biscuity finish. Medium co2 and light mouthfeel that feels a bit sugary. Overall, very good selection from TX.
