3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2003 Bottle: Big and malty ale with some sourish flavors. Roasted caramel? Or is that baked apples? And as Philly pointed out, it does kind of have a rye quality in the malt. Nonetheless, it has some curious flavors woven in there. Sweet and complex. Slight fruitiness protrudes from the back. Has some bread-like / biscuity properties, which are nice. Would've liked to see some more hops tame out the malt a little more, but that's a hophead talking. Overall, I enjoyed the beer; Rock Bottom Westminster, CO: Roasty and toasty, but not as complex as the bottle version I had. Lower carbonation, milder bitterness and less body, also.

Nice lingering spiciness. The Cascade is understated. Sweetness is subtle. Surprisingly yummy.

Perfect score for the look... penny-colored to perfection. Unremarkable, but presented so well that I am hard pressed to find one negative thing to say. Maybe that in itself qualifies as remarkable.

A simple, well-executed recipe brew. Straight forward hopping (some dampened higher Cascade notes) with malt hues in the aroma and flavor.

Very interesting - nice citric hoppiness combined with an almost minty or tingly rye malt. Crisp, refreshing. A nice one.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2004 Copper/amber American style ale. Hint of metallic sourness? Has more bitterness than I would have guessed, and very carbonated. This beer just didn't do it for me, I guess. It's not bad, it's just not well balanced or very remarkable.

Seems to be in the alt style. This beer is all about the malt, so if you can’t stand sweet beers, stay away. Hops round it off admirably in the end. A little less carbonation and this would be truly awesome. Still, very much worth seeking out.
