2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle 12 oz. Almost clear lt. golden, small head that died quick, almost no lace. Aroma is creamy light roast malt w moderate hops. Flavor is semi sweet lt roast malt w light hops, just a touch sharp & harsh, (like it wasn’t stored properly or was old). Pushing medium bodied. There was a noticable bitterness on the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very orange pour....unusual. The flavor is of hops, but strange ones at that...slightly citrusy but kind of musky. The malt has low levels of cane sugar with just a hint of unpleasant bitterness. These Acme beers seem just a bit below the quality of what North Coast is capable of, but these are interesting in their own right.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A cloudy deep golden color along the lines of apple juice. Aroma show some light hoppiness and citrus. The flavor is all hops except for a faint taste of grapefruit. Lighter in flavor than a Bass ale this didn’t impress.

Bottle @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Plenty of butterscotch in this bottle. Maybe an old bottle as the price was reduced... Some papery notes as well, indicating oxidation. Quite sweet and malty for an american ale, in my oppinion.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
There’s some doughy, malty sweetness in the nose, a bit of orange/citrus; lively carbonation; simple mild crystal malt flavor with a detracting metallicness; slight bittering; generally unexiting and disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy light amber. Fluffy off white head Sweet light malts mostly in the aroma. Flavor is similar. Light, pale and fairly sweet. I suppose it is quite drinkable, esp for those who are not ken of bitter hoppy ales. Lacking substance though esp considering it’s nearly complete absence of a decent hops componant.

Blah. I’m looking for more in my beer. This is a very light with a sweet taste that didn’t help matters. I’d just assume give the rest of these away. Wait...I did.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of off-white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy brown colored body. The aroma was mild malty hoppy pale ale like notes. The mouth feel was tingly yet smooth with a mild hoppy finish. The flavor contained notes of mild caramel with malt and a mild hop content.
