Thanks to Maltajo for the bottle. Copper pour with a thin white head. Clean crisp malt taste with a touch of bitterness. Malty oxidized aroma. Not bad, but would like to try it fresh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Monaghan’s, yeah I knew this one was just a tick going in. Poured an actually really nice looking honey brown body underneath a full frothy off white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of corn and honey and the remainder is made up of malts and grains. The body is medium but the mouthfeel is full as this one tends to foam up once you attempt to swallow it and the carbonation is to strong for a beer this tasteless. Flvaor is of stale corn syrup, old bread, stale hop cones. If I was at a picnic this is palatable but as for a sipper....ugh I think not.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper body with a beige head. Caramel malt aroma with some notes of yeast. Slightly sour taste, apart from which all you get in this is malts. Minimal bitterness. Some dry notes. Not a bad mouthfeel. Overall not a bad session beer if not overly complicated and special. What kind of specialty grain is it? Is it even? Can’t tell.

Pours a copper with small white fizzy head. Not getting a lot on the nose. tastes a little caramel and bread. Slightly syrupy but easy drinking enough, not enough flavor to buy again, but i do have a six pack finish.

Copper colored,fairly clear. Some lacing, some retention. Aroma is grassy, sweet, some bread dough. Palate tastes of toffee, is somewhat thin. Has a bit of an English style to it. Okay.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with copper tints and a thinnish, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of malt, corn, metal, a light caramel scent and a touch of sugar. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent corn taste with rice, cardboard and rye noticeable up front fading to metal, bitter malt and gross nuttiness. Aftertaste just shows some off flavours with nothing pleasant - just a funky cardboard and fake taste. Overall, pretty bad and definitely not worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits on 25-July-2009, sampled on 08-September-2009 at home in Washington.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (12oz). Clear bubbly amber-gold with a lasting fizzy straw-coloured head (4-). Smells of moderately roasty bready grain and light herbal bitterness, maybe a hint of extract-tang. Taste - ew, metal, pvc, cheap hop oil, caramel grain backing it up - ehhh. Fairly thick body, slick, weak carbonation, stick and a little harsh in the aftertaste, like dead grass or something. Dug the smell though.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toastiness with some caramel. Tastes of the same toastiness and caramel. Not too much to this one. Body on the weaker side.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
This poured a slightly dark yellow with a big white head. Aroma was sweet maltiness and some adjuncts as well. Flavor was malty, boozy, and some adjuncts and off flavors too. Tihs was not very good at all.
