3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flavor on this one seems to be a little shallow. Aroma is strangely reminiscent of caramel corn/Cracker Jacks. Nothing to write home about, but decent.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A slightly cloudy medium brown body. A fast fading off white head, no retention. A fruity aroma seemed to dominate the aroma. Flavor was too fruity too. Some caramel malts but not enough to balance out the fruity flavor. May have been a bad bottle.

Draft at Ten Tables in JP. Pours a rustic orange color with a small foamy off white head. Nose is lightly nutty with a light coriander spice and a hint of sweet caramel malt. Palate is full and smooth. Flavors of light spicy autumnal notes with a nice sweet malt in the finish and hints of caramel and toffee.

22 oz bomber. Pours a deep amber color with a 1/2" cream colored head. Nose was malty with floral undertones. Flavor was slightly sweet with caramel and malt with a hoppy background. Another good effort by Berkshire Brewing Co.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Champions in Springfield. Pours a cloudy amber with thin beige head and some spots of lace. Nose of sweat socks, sour cream, some caramel, light grass. Undrinkable. I doubt it is the beer but rather absolutely filthy tap lines since beers my friends ordered on draft were also undrinkable. I won’t kill them on the rating because I’m sure it taste better than this at a better establishment.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/28/08 notes: pours amber with little head. Nice aroma of hops, and strong scented malt-sugar. Flavor is toffee, roasts, fruit (apricot?), and bock-like use of creamy malts. The latter especially evident in the sweet mellow finish. A little light on the finish, and nothing too new, but good overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is claimed to be fairly exotic, but to me it just smells like caramel malt and mild hopping. Clear amber color. Semi-sweet pale ale like flavor for the most part, but yeah there is some funky eurohop thing going as well. Very smooth and refreshing, which is not expected from initial impressions. Sort an answer to an unasked question.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A cloudy toffee-brown pub ale. Large rocky head. Thick lace sticks to the glass. Color turns light yellow at the edges.
The smell is the sweet biscuity aroma of a pub ale. A mild, flowery hop as well. The malt is dry and bready. Very very nice.
The malt flavor dominates the taste, like a slightly sweet amber. The roasted qualities of the malt make the sweetness work. Hops are mild and estery. Somewhere between an amber and a brown, although slightly more of an amber flavor.
The feel is medium bodied; a nice milky, creamy thickness on the way down. It’s a really easy drinking beer with goo dbody and balanced roasted/sweet flavors. Top notch.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark golden color. Aroma consists of malts, hops, and caramel. Taste is pretty much the same with a little citrus in the back end. Leaves a hop aftertaste.
