Review being written from notes as i drank this one quite awhile ago now. Served to me in a tall, sort of slender, mug. This beer pours a clear, medium golden color with a white head 1/2 inch when served. Settles to 1/4 inch. Decent retention. Good lace. Settles to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass after few sips. Has a sweet caramel malt aroma with a bit of spice. Has a sweet, malty caramel flavor as well with a hint of clove and coriander. No hop bitterness at all. Has a crisp, frothy full bodied mouthfeel with moderate to heavy carbonation. Easy to drink in a good way. Another winner from the GLBC. Cheers!


Serving type: on-tap

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

had on tap at GLBC, poured into a mug

a: clear orange color, veryy little head, little carbnation

s: sweet malt aroma

t: very sweet and malty. Not much bitterness. Ok I guess, just nothing to special

m&d: medium bodied, wish it had more carbonation. I don't like real sweet beers for me this is not an easy beer to drink. Also 7.5% ABV according to their sheet at the pub... not a session beer either.

3.73/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

note website lists abv at 6.0% sign at brewery had it listed at 7.5%
presented with a semi clear orange like pint with no head or lacing
smell was just slightly of malt
taste was very sweet and malty
mouthfeel medium to light bodied
drinkability this is one killer malt fest going on but the abv kind of kills the session potential it has
