3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the Schaumburg location. Hazy brass color. A thin head with a bit of lace. Somewhat hoppy nose mitigated by the soap in the restroom on my hands. A nice, big hoppy burst on the first sip. The hop bill seems aimed more toward bitterness than flavor, then there’s a slight bit of citrus, pine and grass.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very lightweight pale (or not so pale), pours out a murky copper color, with nice creamy head. Most points for appearance, all else is just mediocre. Easy drinker and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampler at Schaumburg. The most interesting Ram beer I’ve had so far, which isn’t saying much. Oliy hemp seed burnt tones. I pretty much get toasted oily hemp all the way. An oddity. Somewhere between an India Brown Ale and an APA. Another loser.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a slightly hazy amber color. Nose has a little bit of resin in there with some spiciness from the rye. Taste has a lot of rye grains in there as well, with a slightly sweet finish. OK, but nothing special to me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
18 oz at C.B. Potts Highlands Ranch. Cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is musty, earthy with small hoppy citrus notes. Very stock pale ale with no frills whatsoever. The flavor has grassy bitterness, light citrus bite and a continuous earthiness. It’s on the waterier side of the style. Not offensive.
