2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Once Upon a Vine, Richmond, VA, opened 9/23/10. Pours a clear amber color with a large foamy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, apple, nutty notes, floral hops. The taste is biscuity malts and strong bitter hops as well as a bit of green apple. Medium bodied. Somewhat disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz?. Pours a clear honey gold color with a healthy, fluffy, white head with good retention and big webby lace. Aroma is honey, sweet malt, orange juice. Taste is soapy saaz hops, some metallic hoppiness/bitterness, lots of diacetyl on a thin body creating a melted butter mouthfeel is too high for the abv level. Spritzy, near seltzer carbonation. Not enough character really from the second runnings of Old Foghorn.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is certainly an interesting concoction. Pours a clear dark orange color with a medium thin eggshell-white head. Thin lacing. The aroma is light toasted malt. Light-bodied and bitter, without much flavor. A bit of earthy malt is there but the general bitterness is all the beer really has. The finish is lightly bitter and lingering. All in all, a nice throwback beer but not one I would go out of my way to have again.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
A pretty lame brew. It seems the foghorn sucked all the character out of the grians.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pale amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is pretty decent. Soft and fruity with alot of orange marmalade character. EKG and Fuggles gives a fairly prominent hoppy aroma. Malts smell lightly crackery. The flavour comes across a bit muddled however. Fairly watery palate. There are a lot of good components in this beer, but it just never really comes together all that well. It’s pretty authentic, not terrible but not great either.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Syrupy barley malt aroma. Medium amber with small head. Slightly sweet barley malt with moderate hops finish. Very watery. I now understand what Shakepeare’s Henry VI was talking about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden with a small white head. Aromas are spicy pine with grapefruit and dusty malts. Flavours are dry tea with resinous bitter grapefruit. Has some nutty Alt character. Bitter and woody on the finish. Lots of taste for its strength.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear light orange with a small white head. Smells like a lager... burnt corn and hay. Biting bitterness hits the mouth immediately, and smooths a little bit into a corn and hay flavor. Finish is a little bitter... can't tell if it's a different hop effect for the finish or if it's the lingering bite that I got on the first sip.
