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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, this brewed in St Louis. Poured with a pedestrian appeal, light amber, just a thin head. It drinks with a odd perfume-laden scent, sweet and musty. Although it’s odd up front, perhaps it’s because I expected less -- it actually grows on me as I go. Not bad. (#4359, 11/20/2011)

Bottle. Poured clear amber color with a frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma with a click moderate balanced sweet finish of average duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Soft drinkable beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Overall decent, nothing great or memorable about this beer. No aroma, definitely malt taste, not particularly balanced with hops (can barely detect any hop flavor). Medium bodied, low CO2, thin watery taste. Drinkable, but not one I would seek out again.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My first beer in this line. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright amber color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy caramel, bitter and faint vague fruity hops and an undertone of cooked vegetables. The flavor was dryish, bitter and a touch floral with faint vague fruity hops. The finish was medium length grainy malts and vague fruits. Medium body but overcarbonated. Unimpressive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma is surprisingly fruity, a mixture of strawberry and orange. The light body has a smooth texture with average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a quick finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Open opening the bottle, immediate fruit and bubblegume aromas. Let the bottle warm a bit out of the fridge and gave it an aggressive pour to get get a large, foamy, frothy, billowy off white head that settled after a bit and a little lace. Color is a clear, deep yellow gold with some slow bubble trails. Aroma is like I said - fruity, bubblegum, plus malt and beery; not much hop that I could sense. Flavor’s the same as nose with sweetness slightly trumping bitter and tang. Body is ok, ditto carbonations. Finish is average, malty and a bit sweet on the tip of the tongue. Nothing special.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. In Bev owned and it tastes like it. I did not like this beer as it didn’t seem to taste like a pale ale. Did they have any hops in it?

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle @ Minneapolis Beer Fest. Light yellow pour with a small white head. Some citrus on nose and taste, plus a little biscuit. Not awful, not great, just okay.
