3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2005 Poured amber with an off white head. The aroma was very pleasant: fruity hops, orange peel, and pineapple. The flavor was really a huge let down on this one. Definately tons of other beers I would rather drink. Had a watery body with only a slight mix of grassy/floral hops for flavor. Very dry finish which is good because you will get this down fast that way.

Pours the color of a garnet stone. Lively bubbles with small head. No lacing. Lively in the mouth as well. Nice balance of malts and hops. Good beer for a style I don’t prefer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
612-850-0680. Disregard those digits. Beautiful dark burgundy hue with a small, thin and wispy head of foam. Aroma screams of dry Irish Ale yeast, hints of herbs, flowers and citrus from the hops and a touch of fruit and caramel from the malt. Taste is mainly hop accented with a blend of citrusy, flowery, herbaceous varieties along with a toasted malt and caramel malt backbone. Dry and bitter.

Thanks to beer handy for this. Pours a mixture of deep copper and ruby with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, and floral esters. Tastes malty, hoppy, with a solid fruit element. Smooth palate with lively carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours translucent read with a small head and tiny bubbles. Nose is mildy malty, sweet, a bit of sharpness. Very flavorful with a nice sweet almost candy-like beginning, toasted malts and a smoky finish, with what tastes like crystal hops in the middle. Great, lingering slightly smoky aftertaste. Overall very good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours murky red with smallish head. No visible carbonation or lacing. Smells of light malt and citrus. I like the medium mouthfeel. Not bad, maybe BBC can make some decent beers. (12 oz bottle/shaker)

Brownish-red color with minimal head. Aroma is warm, malty with toasted caramel and dark friut. Flavor is very malty with toasted caramel, milk cream, dry bakers chocolate underpinning, and a nice balancing bitterness.
