2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is malty, but not like in a lager. Rye and barnyard; plus fruity notes. Minimal head, amber colour. Lightly sour, lightly bitter. Soft carbonation, full body. Maybe lacks some bitterness and character, but it’s a good beer.

Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 500 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy light copper pour, light off-white filmy head. Aroma has some light molasses notes, a hint of orange marmalade. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some light citrus notes, a touch of dates and molasses, a touch of yeast and honey. Mouthfeel has a nice smoothness to it., Session worthy.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
@Weilands Market/Columbus Clear golden copper with a long 1/2" head, light, isolated swirls of lace. Taste is caramel malt with other grains added, which creates trouble rather than interest. The"adjuncts" mostly add sour vegetable extract, with no growth or change through the palate. The finish is very lightly bittered. Not a keeper.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flowery aroma with a little funkiness. Flavor is smooth and very sweet, with some caramel and dark fruit. A little bitterness provides some balance in a somewhat watery finish. Decent, but not worth seeking out, even if you like ESBs as much as I do.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml Bottle. It pours a medium white head over a golden body. Its aroma is honey, malt and sour hops. Its taste is a bit non-descript really. The only thing really of note is a nice creamy initial mouth feel that ends watery - bit strange that! Otherwise its lacking in taste and character but it is drinkable.

Has a healthy golden glow but very little head and a light malt character. Relatively easy to drink with a carbonation.
