2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel, sweet and just slightly hoppy notes. Medium amber color with little head. Sour flavor, slides down fast with little aftertaste. Hints of coffee.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle served in glass - bottled at Big Horn #2, FC, CO. Pours nice clear copper in color with thin head. Aroma is pleasant but mostly indistinguishable, mildly sweet, maybe nutty; no hops noticable despite the write-up indicating 4 different varieties (apparently in very small quantities). Flavor is rather flat but not at all distasteful, with mild malt and nut tones and again no hops, that stays on the palate for a short amount of time making this a drinkable beer. Overall, in reviewing my score, I was surprised to see it tally up so low (2.8 originally) since it is very drinkable, but again there is nothing about this beer that stands out; I gave it an additional "overall" point for the easy drinkability. I would recommend this beer despite the low result especially for the casual beer drinker (not any of you crazy enough to rate beers online, but maybe some of your friends). Wife says, "Mmmm... good; I could drink that."

Dark amber, some head with decent lacing. Served way too cold.After it warmed some flavor was malty with a light hop finish. Average amber.

Nice taste. They’re not lying about the alcohol content, either.

Draft in Alrington, TX
This was one of the best brews of the night out of the 8 beers I tried. Really has no new taste that grabs me, tastes like most ambers.
