2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
1 pt. 6 oz. bottle:
Pours bright golden yellow with a fluffy/foamy white head that leaves some lacing.
The smell is of sweet grain, somewhat nutty with lemongrass.
The taste is of sweet grainy, slightly nutty with a hint of yellow apples, honey, and spices.
It has a thickish, syrupy medium body. Medium to high carbonation saves this brew from sickly sweetness.
I appreciate experimentation with imperial styles, but this one just doesnít work that well for me. I donít think the beer is poorly conceived. But I donít think that it really works as a style. Nice try but just not my cup of tea.

A creature of the swamp, Andygator is a unique high gravity brew made with 2-row pale malt, German lager yeast, and Liberty hops. Unlike other high gravity brews, Andygator is fermented to a dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is an interesting wet hay and grain in a barn mixture.
The taste is quite grainy, a solid sweet note running through it all. Some apples and a little orange.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
Itís a little too sweet for me, interesting though.
