smells malty and corney, with a white head, and a dark amber color. The flavor is sickly sweet and malty witgh an acidic bite, vegtables, kinda a narsty taste.

This was a good one! on tap at brewery in chicago. Smells nutty and alcohol. Tastes nutty, crystal amber, little chocolate malt/specialty grains on tounge. Little willamette hops, spicy and no floral bouquet on tounge. Tastes like a replica of my irish red I brewed in Nov. Almost a typical ESB then an amber..

A non-rememberable amber. A bit flat, thin on flavor, unimpressive. If you want a good amber, try Great Lake’s Eliot Ness instead, it is infinitely better.

Had it on tap at the RAM as part of their sampler that they offer. It was pretty much on par with the other beers they had there. Kind of textbook.

Had this on tap at their restaurant. Pretty bland and uninteresting in all ways. Pass. Food was not very good, either.

Sweet and malty up front with a good citrusy hop flavor and bitterness. This was my favorite of the sampler.

Served on tap at Ram Brewery, downtown Indianapolis. Very dark amber. Strong caramel flavor to the point of almost being overbearing. Would be good with a hamburger or perhaps grilled chicken. Seemed mass produced. Enjoyable but I don?t think I?d order this again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber color with a creamy head. Sweet floral aroma. First sip was blend and without much merit. Finished disappointing, but I had to try it for the name. This beer would be for those who don’t "like" beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured a medium reddish brown with a slightly off white head. Aroma was sour and slightly buttery(?). Flavor was very malty and very tangy, almost like vinegar. The flavor struck me as very unbalanced, overwhelmingly cidery. Maybe my bottle had gone bad? This beer became undrinkable about halfway through and became a sour feast for the drain. I'll try this again in the future and rerate if my rated sample was indeed spoiled.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler. Pours a medium brown, slightly khaki head with good retention. Very fruity aroma, slight notes of the hops, definitely sweet smelling too. Really mellow flavor, good balance of hops and malt with hops dominating a wee bit, finishes quickly. Medium carbonation, a strange sensation that reminds me of cola, real light body and slightly slick texture.
