3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottled June 2014. Lightly hazy orange-amber with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma is big with molasses. There’s also some citrus and a hint of toast. Taste is toast, sourish citrus, apple, leafy and wooden hops, and earthy honey. Light-medium body has a good balance and a tingly but smooth, medium carbonation. Tastes like a decent bitter.

Bottle. Nothing really outstanding about this one. It was refreshing to drink while on the lake but the lemon was very slight and light. Not really that bad of a beer.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured from 12oz bottle. Very unremarkable beer. Nothing stands out and quite lacking in substantial taste. One and done here.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
There is an aroma of floral, grass, and herbs. It is pale amber in color with a medium bodies white head. There is a sweet, undefined taste that leaves an abrupt unpleasant taste on the palate.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Straw-yellow color, mild clarity with a chunky white head that settles rather quickly. Aroma is heavy lemon feel, almost like oily and verbena-ish. Some pale malt, barely any hops, and finishing with a solvent-like aroma. Not very good. Taste is equally as lackluster. Small pale malt backdrop with solvent lemon notes, lemon zest, verbena, very, very slight herbal tea leaves. The solvent finish is killing it. Poorly executed, tastes and smells a bit like Lemon Pledge. Blah.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from somewhere in Michigan. Bottled June 2013. Clear kind of darker amber color. Thin off-white head. Dots and bits of lace. Surprising amount of caramel malt. Light lemon, some bready wheat. Light spice. Moderate earthy hop. Little metallic. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. Reasonably smooth and easy drinking. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Interesting, somewhat fruity amber ale. Lemon is subtle, doesn’t over power the amber ale. Odd, but not awful, not nearly as bad as the current mean suggests.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
9/13/13. 12oz bottle thanks to Brent! Murky caramel amber color with a small khaki head. Very small lemon in the aroma, mostly abrupt, dirty caramel and a big dose of metal. Dirty malty flavor, dusty caramel, lots of metal, hardly any lemon. Not good.

Wasn’t sure what this was. It is sluggable and doesn’t taste too awful. But not great.
