3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darker amber, moderate head with solid lacing and good retention. Aroma is malt dominated with notes of caramel, toast and earth. Minor hop notes. Finishes dry with very light alcohol. Decent, but it’s just another amber so who cares.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, no date. All of my beers have been the same color as of late--clear dirty orange with a small beige head, low retention. Caramel, light nuts, and some underlying spicy and fainter piney hops are the aroma. Flavor was much the same with the addition of a little earth, and overall bitterness peaking at a 2-3. Low carbonation with a light to medium body.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very soap bubbly head. While it fades, it does last for a few minutes unless you drink from the glass. Reddish brown in color. Flavor is a slight oxidation to it. No pronounced aroma. Slight warming on the palate after a minute with a hoppy aftertaste that wasn’t necessarily there when you first drink it. Not on my list of beers to go out of my way to try again, but I’m close enough to Fairfield that I just might have to try it at their pub to see what it tastes like fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber color. Aroma of caramel, dry, and nice hops. Weak body, with a good caramel flavor and quite strong bitterness, without exaggerating. The final is caramel and hops too, long and dry. Good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, warm amber golden with an off-white head leaving some lacework. It comes with a classic American nose rich with aroma hops. Medium body, lightly sweet caramel notes, a slight nuttiness and then a fairly bitter finish. Decent but not exactly thrilling. 150807
