Bottle to glass pint. Pours a medium dark yellow, and little to no head. Not much aroma or flavor. Kinda watery and flavorless. Not my bag.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Sanderís place in NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Lightly toasted malts in the nose, mild caramel and straw. Medium sweet flavor, sweet bread, grains. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, slightly syrupy finish, faint leaves and grain, some toasted sugar. Itís nothing special, though slightly better than the Nova Scotia Brown Ale.

Meh. Boring beer that does nothing terrible and nothing good. Flat hops and a bit of unflattering sweetness.

Pours golden yellow with a moderate head and very little lacing. Aroma is faint smell of bananas and subtle spices. Taste is more on the malty side of malty and hoppy. In fact there isnít any particularly hoppy notes anywhere in the taste. It also flirts with being cidery. The pallet is a bit wet and because of the lack of hop flavor the finish is not crisp. However itís a fairly pleasant beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Light aroma of mild spicey hops, a little malt. Taste is a little malt, a little spicey hops, an epheral hint of roasted grain, a nice dry finish with very modest bitter. Overal very light, thin palate, weak, but with a little character and no bad flavors.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Weak dried leaves aroma. Crystal clear amber, thin head. Mainly dry malt with a honey character, but weak. Rather macro-ish, but not entirely a lost cause.

I absolutely love this beer!. Its a perfect balance. Amber color, great aroma. Next no no head but tastes amazing, there is not any one flavor out doing the rest, very well balanced.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice amber color with the pour but absolutely no head. It has a tang of some bitter citrus, grapefruit possibly. Not bad but not good

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours pale yellow with a foamy white head. Grainy nose, with sweet sticky caramel and toffee, a bit of milky sourness, and some sharpness. Artificial malty caramel sweetness in the taste, grain, and a faint hoppiness on the finish. But real faint. Thin, lightly syrupy and fizzily carbonated.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a smallish white head that dissipates almost instantly. Smells of sweet honey malt, spicy floral hops, skunk, and corn. Taste is sweet honey like bready malt with enough earthy spicy hops to keep this from cloying. This one steers dangerously close to the sweet side. Medium to light body, moderate level of carbonation, slick sweet mouthfeel. Easy enough to drink with really no flaws, but also a bit boring. Maybe a good lawnmower beer? Should be hoppier.
