2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An acceptable drink. Nice reddish brown color with a passing white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a touch of bitterness. Much the same with the taste. Disappointing in that I know this brewery can and does much, much better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This amber pours a orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of caramel. A medium bodied amber. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly citrusy and grapefruity. Nice balance. A touch sweet, but there is some hoppiness to balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2008 Bottle. Partly cloudy amber color. Fruity aroma. Soft, somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Nice bitter aftertaste but good balance with sweet nuttiness in the back of the throat.
Re-rate from draught at Mellow Mushroom! Deep amber with haze and thick creamy head. Fresh grain, caramel and toffee aromas. Soft mouthfeel, excellent body. Supremely balanced with scale tipping slightly toward the sweet side. Caramel, pecan, toffee, praline. Integrated hops at end. Delicious and highly drinkable.

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.

3.2 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 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly good version of the style, nose of malts and tastes of just the same but fairly weak in body and finish.
