2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Poured light-medium amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up charred caramel and molasses with dusty earth and odd funky accents. The flavor found tart, funky notes throughout (hard to place, and not enjoyable).. caramel and lesser molasses supported.. tart and ugly on the long finish. Lighter-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. just funky and unpleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, slight murkiness, tight off-white head. Aroma Wort-like aroma with some spicy highlights, and a hint of toffee. Flavor is full-bodied with some caramel sweetness, some toffee-like maltiness, just a touch of citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Not bad at all.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent golden brown colored body and a creamy thick lacing. The aroma was musty. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of crystal malt. Not one that I would buy again. Weak and unsatisfying.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, medium tannish bronze. Standard 12 oz longneck twistoff. Fair label. Pleasantly acidic and tannic, but buffered. Reasonably hoppy, lightly sweet, this wasn’t fancy but it was serviceable. Bitter, malty finish. Medium body. ABC Liquors, Betton.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is banana split, medium sweetness and a hint of nuttiness. The flavor is light toffee, sweetish malts, fruit and a tart finish. Different enough to be a decent amber ale.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Backlog rating on 9-13-2012 (Draft) This beer forms a large frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes, transparent amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and hops. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt, hops, and metallic. This beer is light bodied. This beer has a nice appearance and that is the best aspect of this beer in my opinion.
