Poured into a pint glass and developed a nice full, creamy off white head which lasted and laced well. Aroma was bready and sweet with caramel notes. Appearance was a very nice honey, amber color with a hazy hue. Taste had a strong toffee note with hints of spruce and caramel. mouthfeel was full and slightly buttery. Aftertaste was dry and a bit hoppy.

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

A - Pours with a small head of off-white foam on top of a lightly hazy, amber-brown body. The foam settles quickly and leaves decent lace on the glass.

S - An aroma of caramel, toffee, and some pine hop notes.

T - Toffee and toasted malt up front with some tart grainy notes. Musty pine hops come out in the middle with a finish of old hops, moderate bitterness, and lingering semi sour brown malt.

M - Medium body, moderately low carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - The aroma is relatively promising, but the flavor is bland and muddy with a poor finish. Just not something that inspires me to want another.

Reviewed from notes.

Poured out a murky brownish-amber with a flash head and some minor lacing curtains around the edges. Medium body and medium-low levels of carbonation.

Smells mostly of tea-like herbal hopping over a standard sweet caramel malt and just a small amount of citrus peel, tastes of the same but also has a horrid metallic, acrid chalky finish that sticks around in the mouth like an unwanted party guest that just won't leave.

I can't really recommend this one.
