3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. It pours a ruddy brown with a foamy, light tan head. The nose has a stale nuttiness to it and not much else. The flavor has some caramel malt, a light nuttiness, and a slight bitterness on the back end. Simple and drinkable. Medium bodied with rather prickly carbonation leading to a medium, slightly dry finish. There isn’t anything really remarkable about this brew, but it would make a good session beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lightly hazy, brown color with a small, off white head taht left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light caramel and nuts. Taste of the same, with a bit of burnt cardboard. Nothing really special here.

Slightly cloudy brown color with next to no head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and nuts. Flavor of caramel, nuts, and some hops. One of the better from this brewer. Nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep reddish copper ale with a thick moka head. In aroma, again, that meaty herbal aroma, with light roasted malts. In mouth, a nutty malt with herbal hops, lingering, light bitterness, overall, not bad. On tap at PA Flavor, April 9th, 2011.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a small tan head that faded quickly. The aroma was faint vague fruits and toasty malts with a hint of caramel. The flavor was tangy, butter and a bit toasty with faint nut and caramel underneath. The finish was long, bitter and tangy. Medium body. Eh.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Faint aroma. Pours brown from tap with a thin head. Faint malt notes in the tongue but finishes quickly. Not my favorite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep coppery color with a malty aroma. Tannish white head. Nutty and malty with a hint of roastiness. A distinct leaning to the malt over the hops, though not in a sweet manner.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear brown coloured body with a nice ruby tint and a thin tan head with large bubbles. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, brown sugar and a very mild yeast scent. Light-bodied; Some maltiness and a lot of peanuts and pecans soon after the sip. Aftertaste shows a light-bodied beer with a nutty and slightly bitter flavour with no body and no complexity. Overall, not such a great beer - a touch of sweetness and nuts, but way too watery and no complexity at all make for an uninspired beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Market Cellars in Reston, Virginia on 11-December-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 10-January-2011.
