3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from True Vine. It pours pours a light amber orange with a small, foamy, white head. The nose has light malt and toast notes. The flavor is pretty one dimensional with some flabby toast and very light, stale hop notes. Thin body with some lingering malt on the palate. A very middle of the road amber ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. Clear, pale copper with a lasting ring of foam. Nose is grain, sourish caramel apple, light resin. Flavor is mostly caramel and apple, with light citrus and toasted pecan on the finish. Light-medium body is sweetish, a little hop-tingly, and lightly carbonated. This isn’t half-bad, as an American take on an English Bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I kinda thought this would be terrible but it wasn’t! Popped the crown with a loud pop, poured almost as a gusher, with a huge foaming head, thick meringue like texture sticking out of the glass and holding its shape. Took forever to pour. Clean caramel bready malts, light grassy hops. Clean overall approach, fairly done although heavy on the carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft served as Red Brick Laughing Skull: Weak cherry nose. Clear amber, medium yellow head. Weak malt flavor, nothing fruity. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Alcohol slightly noticeable, which isn’t surprising since there is little to hide it. Weak.

Draught. Pours mahogany with a white head. Smells of light caramel, some earthy hints. Tastes rosey and watery with a thin, caramel finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft. Pours a dark, brownish read with creamy, almost nitrogen like tan head. Medium bodied, low in carbonation, almost drinks like a bitter. Aroma is earthy with caramel, flavor is the same, notes of soil, toast, nuts, and caramel. Overall not too shabby.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Poured light amber with a smallish white head. Aroma and flavor were mild, some bready malt, some citrusy, grassy hops. LIttle bit o’ honey, perhaps. Nice and drinkable.

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) Color is somewhere between yellow and orange. Smells of mat syrup, bananas, roast. Maybe some sweet smoke. Tastes light herbal bitterness, some grapefruit pith, chalk.
