3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It seems like everywhere you go, people talk highly of this beer. I can see why, but at the same time the hype I had heard for it left me slightly disappointed. The best thing about it is the dirty, dark and golden colour, the aroma doesn’t quite live up to the appearance. It’s mildly tangy, mild but notable yeast presence, it’s pretty much a toned down version of a type of beer that is often complex and challenging. The best thing I can say in praise of this beer is that it seems like it would be an incredibly versatile lunch/dinner beer.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Aroma is yeast, sweet caramel. Appearance is hazy amber with massive (4+ finger-width) frothy off-white head after vigorous poor, with sticky sudsy lacing, trace sparkle. Taste is lightly sweet caramel, back end mild tart and bitter. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture and flat carbonation. Dry finish. Overall, I respect this beer’s legend and the history is great, but the beer itself is pretty tame.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear deep amber color with strong slight off white foam. Aromas of, malt, caramel, nutty in a way reminds of English bitter? And banana peel. Palate, medium body with medium thicker sugary texture, leaving caramel malt finish. Taste is sweet of caramel malt maybe bit oily too. Overall quite simple and really reminds of English bitter, not bad, fun to try.

Flasche - dunkelbronzene Farbe. Frisch-würziger Geschmack mit mittelstarkem Körper. Trocken-malziger Abgang. Ein bisschen wie ein gutes leichtes Pale Ale oder ein sehr fruchtiges Helles. Süffig, erfrischend. Schön.

Very solid beer here. Almost like a lighter pale ale with the hoppy finish. Love the darker copper color

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sweet, corn, malt, earthy hops, booze. Appearance is golden amber, light tan head, clear. Taste is decent, fruity hops mix with earthy hops, malt, the corn is masked quite a bit, the flavor is quick but it ends right. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, crisp carbonation, some hops fall off quick in the end. Overall, this one isn’t as bad as I was expecting.
