3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Blue Smoke, 10/30/09
Aroma: A fairly standard caramel malty nose, with some light earthy and spice notes too.
Appearance: This one pours a clear amber color into the glass.
Flavor: The flavor is fairly malty with a bit of an floral hop backing.
Palate: It has a decent mouthfeel and a light-medium body.
This is a decent beer, I thought it went pretty well with BBQ Ribs, so that was a plus. I wouldnít go out of my way for it, but if you are here eating, itís certainly worthy of a drink. I can see why they would have chosen this one to go with this place.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
tap @ Citi: ... and then from left field comes... a reason for me to continue being a Mets fan! Contrary to other ratings, I believe this is the better of the 2 ales offered at the stadium. A more complex tasting beer, I get a full balance of hops, malts, biscuit, and dark sugars.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma was malty, biscuity, grassy. The appearance was orange, white head. The flavor was malty, slight notes of grass, bread. The finish was a bittering from noble type hops. Fairly light bodied. It certainly has some characteristics of a pale lager, although they claim itís 2 ales mixed together. I canít guess which 2 les they are talking about. Not bad, not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Citi Field. Poured dark amber with a fizzy white head. Aroma of slightly sweet biscuity malt with a slight touch of piney grassy hops. Flavor is lightly sweet with a nutty toffee character and a clean slightly hoppy finish. Not bursting with complexity but refreshing and drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Citi Field. Had no idea what sort of beer this was going in and my best guess at the time was pale lager. That pretty much sums up my thoughts. Maybe somebody hooked up the kegs wrong.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Citi. Aroma is of sugar. Flavor is watery and nothing to it. Worst of one available at Citi.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Citi Field. This is the worst of the 3 Brooklyn beers available at Citi Field. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Watery palate, very carbonated, and bland. Not very flavorful at all, just generic sweet caramel malt. Itís drinkable, sure, but certainly not worth the $7.50.
