Not a big fan of this either, malty, like a malt but no where near a milkshake ya know?

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear brown with a small, frothy off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt with dates and figs. Flavor is sweet malt, dark fruits, faint hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
ours dark amber with a little off-white head. Aroma is effervescent and fruity with hints of wild cherry. For a scotch, the body is light but not lacking in flavor. The cherry notes are apparent with an obvious bready malt backbone. The finish is sweet, sour and slightly nutty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Pours a deep copper brown, nice creamy tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Nose is heavy malt, caramel, roasted barley. Mouth is comparatively weak and disappointingly thin. Light sweetness, caramel, malt, toffee, treacle, light bitterness at finish, goes watery by mid-range. First Ballast Point brew I’ve had that was less than thrilled with. Oh well, at least it was cheap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear and slightly reddish cola brown with a fairly thick, if effervescent, light tan head. Aroma is not strong, but tempts with caramel, malty, horehound, and subtle clove notes. Flavor echoes the aroma but takes it up a notch, and adds an earthy hint. Texture is fairly firm and smooth, though fizz leaves something to be desired. Put it down your pipes!

[ Bottle ][ 22oz ][ Costco Vista ][ $3.50 ][ Thistle ][ 11.25.14 ]
>> Pours clear deeper red with a medium tan foam with okay retention and spotty, soapy lace. Low hop content it seems. Nose is dark bread, caramel, Maillard reaction, toffee. Rich aroma. Taste is weaker, red apple mealy, suddy hydrogen peroxide mouthfeel. Flavors are comparatively weak, but then again the abv is low. Body is medium-light, bitterness is almost non existent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice head. Aroma is light peat with most malt. Sweet beer. a Bit thin on the tongue but it isn’t really far off from what I would hope for. Very enjoyable overall. But a basic beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich caramel, earthy mineral, hint of sea salt and musty basements, with a herbal hop finish. Faint twangy dark fruit and oak. Not bad but nothing I would go out of my way to try again.

My bottle said 5.8%, poured a a pretty red colour with a sustained head. Great malt character.
