3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours pale amber with a quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma is sort of aged bread with some sugary malt and floral hop. Or maybe more complicated than that. There’s a lot of malt and a lot of floral and maybe citrus hop. Actually goes a bit astringent, yet it makes me think of a light barley wine. Confusingly complicated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle courtesy of Fata!!) Pours hazy light copper with massive off-white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma of bread/biscuit, nice sweet florals and hard candy. Taste is sweet malt and a sharp hop bite that fades into the background allowing the malts to resurface. Medium bodied with an oily texture and bitter finish. A respectable beer here

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4/30/11. 12oz bottle courtesy fata2683. Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head. The aroma on this is crazy. It’s like sticking my nose into a grapefruit and rubbing it around... and some orange peel and other weird tropical fruits. Maltier flavor with caramel and chocolate mixed with orange and grapefruit. Kind of a weird beer. Interesting.

I feel like I just stuck my head in a Grapefruit and tangarine goodness, very citrus, very gritty taste, a slight bit of the citrus, alright.

Bottle: Pours a nice amber color with a big white head. Crisp hoppy nose with a clean malty body and a nice crisp mouthfeel. Very fresh and snappy for down south. I’m impressed.

Pale amber with a silken head. Dank hop nose, more reminiscent of the English style pales. Dry, light crystal malt body with overwhelming, parching hoppiness with an astringent bitter-herbal hop finish.

Niece brought me this from Baton rouge. Pours dark gold with very little white head. A bit on the hoppy side on the nose, almost like an IPA, but the taste is slightly sweet with a nice bit of a bite in the finish.

Nose is light toasted malt, a little pine, caramel maltiness, some floral notes. Flavor is toasty malt, kinda sweet with some pine & old citrus notes. Bitterness grows in the finish.

Draft on Bourbon Street. Amber in color, bright and lively. Crispy, with a nice tangy sting. Quite the nice drinkable beer. (#4207, 12/12/2010)
