3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is amber/light brown with a creamy, off white head. Bottle is a bit over carbonated. Aroma is dominated by citrus and floral hop. Taste is where this beer misses the mark. Starts with a nice caramel and biscuit malt flavor and gives way to a distinct foot like taste as the hop bite kicks in. Must have something to do with the balance of the citrusy Centennial hop with the caramel malts. Mouthfeel is medium, and finish is a nice hop bite with a slightly lingering stickiness and bitterness. This sounded like a beer I’d really like, but it doesn’t come thru

12oz can. Maybe too old? Caramel-vanilla-cherry amber malt tones. I guess it is an Amber, but I am really not feeling it. Has a decent hop balance but the overall malts aren’t that pleasant. OK. Stale caramel tones kill it for me.

This brew had a nice crimson color. There was nothing memorable about the aroma of taste, except a bit of bitterness at the end. What I did notice and like was that it was a very nice brew overall.
I have had several beers from 4 Hands, none great, but everyone was good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a medium to light iced tea color. Tan head is a little rocky and dissipates quickly---only got about 1/2 foam and I poured it straight down the middle of a tulip glass. Slight citrus aroma and maltyness. Good crisp taste with only slight bitterness, thin mouthfeel but that’s okay for this. 4 stars.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at taproom. Pours light red with a white head that disappears quickly. Fairly big grapefruit on the nose. Huge grapefruit on the tongue. It does pucker the tongue a bit which is nice I suppose. Finishes clean. Nice.
