3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at McGregor’s Chili. After rereading my rating for their IPA, am surprised with how wonderful I found this beer. It was fresh, cloudy, nice head, dark gold towards amber but not theere. Nose of spices and oranges. Palate very similar, hoppy, citrrus, spicy, really well done and enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarket, 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, frothy white head, good lacing. Pretty much of a neutral aroma with just a hint of grain. Flavor is dull and grainy with no real bitterness or fruitiness - no ale-like qualities. Slight nuttiness reedeem it a bit. Mouthfeel is bland and lifeless.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells of sweat and cheap malt. Clear, yellow beer - looks like lager. Lightly candied, lager-like hopping. Bland, no PA character. Medium body, watery finish. ABC Liquors, Kerry Forest Parkway.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
a decent enough brew with a fairly yeasty taste, body and caramel flavor. a foamy mouthfeel the brew has a warming malty character with a cherry type flavor. If allowed to sit for some time a faint flavor of soap with a tinge of citrus hop can be discerned. This brew is a near miss since it does have something going for it.

4/26/11. 12oz bottle. Clear orange pour with a big fluffy off-white head that cuts quickly but laces a bit. Plain musty aroma with a hint of citrus. Sweet malty flavor with a hint of citrus and pine. Very straightforward. Meh.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 11097-BG-05. The pour was a golden yellow with a thin, short lasting head. Its aroma is thinly malted and thinly hopped but the overall impression is crisp and clean. The taste tends to be a bit more refershing with a stronger malt and light yeast character. It is rather refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is very weak with corn like malt and almost nonexistent grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a medium head that fades to nothing. The taste is better than the aroma because it actually has flavor. There is a nice creamy malty taste. The palate is smooth. Overall this beer is enjoyable even if all it has is a nice malty taste.
