3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of daknole. Danke dak. Batch 9020, so about three months in the bottle. Pours a gently hazed brown amber with a medium to large white head. Soft caramel and malt on the nose, and a subtle hoppiness. Gentle malt and lightly sweet. Finishes with a subtle hop bitterness. Overall just a very subtle and light beer. Nothing bold, nothing big…just easy drinking tasty beer. Nicely done.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from the Party Source. Pours a cloudy amber-gold color with some visible sediment and a big rocky off-white head that leaves some lacing. Light aroma of orange citrus, caramel, toast, and rye. Malty flavor, with notes of orange citrus, toast, and a little spice. Well-balanced, malty, and a bit sweet. Mild and light-medium bodied, with a dry finish. Good beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"wish list cross-off from pfoxyjohn. unfortunately, i was a little underwhelmed by this one. not expecting greatness, but hoping for a favorite or near favorite for the style. pours a murky amber with a nice looking head. flavor is mostly malt, as is the flavor, and just wasn’t complex, bright, or hoppy enough to do much for me. not bad, but i’ve had much better in the style. 1st disappointment from Kalamazoo

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[394-20070702] 355mL (w/ jerc). Wheaty malt and toasted straw yeast aroma with a hint of fruit, apple if anything. Slightly hazy, dark orange body with a long-lasting thin creamy white head. Grainy vegetable alcohol flavour with toasted yeast. Light-medium body. Not impressive, something funky there.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Poured copper to orange with creamy off white head. The aroma is light and has sweet roasted malt notes. The flavor is roasted malts that add as much roastiness as caramel sweetness. The hops come in as an undercurrent about midway. From what I could tell they’re of the grapefruit type variety.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botte. Pours a deep amber with a decent white head. The aroma consists of malts and sweet bread. The taste is subdued, some sweet malts, a bit of hops, some bready parts, and maybe a light side of fruit. Easy to drink and smooth. Nothing too special though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber in color (what, did you think it would be blue?) with a small white head. There is a sweetness from the malts but,not as many hops as I expected in the aroma or the flavor. I did get some citrus flavor as well as caramel. Not bad, just not my typical style.
