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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark straw/copper colored, with aroma of malt, some hopcit and fruit. I didn;t detect any "off" aromas here. The taste was uninspiring, with some caramel malt, hops, and slight fruit presence. Did Fritz want to make a "small beer", or did Maytag have a bad fiscal quarter?

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear brighter golden with a medium cap of creamy white head. The aroma picked up sweet bready notes and honey along with citrus and floral accents.. sweeter and fruitier as it approached room temp. The flavor found caramel, honey, and doughy bread with a moderate, but lingering citrus bitterness beyond the finish.. light musty vegetal notes detract a bit, otherwise tasty. Lighter-bodied and sweet with decent balance.. the bitterness was a touch abrasive at times.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 Hot tub-sitting round Ma and Pa’s, 31/07/11. Still bronze-gold, lazing carbonation, slim white collar. Faint pine cone aroma with background cooked veg, evergreens. Soft and slightly bilious; honey-dipped wafers, mineral water, OK creamy malt on the finish but generally not much else in the flavour department. Watery, coniferous hop, Disprin hints. Small in every sense except, sadly, the bottle- 650ml is 600ml too much.

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.
