3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased from Metcalf Discount Liquor in Olathe, KS. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with a "best by" date of 5/1/13 into an English pint glass. Pours dark amber/orange with a 3/4" off-white frothy head; some lacing. Head quickly diminishes, but never leaves completely due to soft but constant carbonation, similar to a champagne. Once in the glass, it exhibits a moderate hoppy aroma of flowers and citrus. Very slight earthy yeasty component. Beer remains slightly cloudy with very tiny particles. Taste is a mix between sweet and bitter, but both very light. However, it finishes sweeter with an average duration and a bit of a metallic feel. It has a light to medium body with a slight oily texture.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured crystal clear copper amber with a tall foamy beige head initially. The head became more creamy as it settled and eventual just became a film. The aroma was primarily roasted malt, but not to strong. There was a bit of a yeasty bread scent too. The flavor was also mild, with some roasted malt and a hint of hops upfront. The finish was again mild with just a hint of hops on the finish. The beer was smooth and mild, nice color and easy drinking

bottle @ Whitey’s / Lawrenceburg IN --- Aroma of malt. Clear brown cololr, off-white head that drops to a cover, strips of lace. Taste is lightly toasted malt that grows into a medium carbonated swallow, followed by light oak and mild hops. An enjoyable brew.

Amber pour, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is malty, as is the flavor. Mostly caramel, not too roasted. It’s pretty straightforward. Just a light malty beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
seems like perhaps an oldish bottle, though I don’t see a date. Still has odd hoppy notes for the style, though - I expect bread and toffee and get lightly bitter and herbal hops. Meh.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of gregwilsonstl, pours with a clear amber to ruby red body that supports a full tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, earthy malts, a hit of caramel malts, floral hops, raisins and brown sugar dusted dates. The taste starts smooth with a pleasing blend of soft sweet malts, faint caramel malts, chocolate malts and roasted malts. Toward midway it picks up sweet fruity ester notes that are lined with dates and raisins. This stays soft and supple right into the finish where a subtle earthy mineral sensation joins in to close out the experience. Nice beer. I dig it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear copper with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some grass, hops. Taste follows suit with huge malts and a dry grassy bitterness on the tongue. Finish is a bit too hoppy for the style, and mouthfeel is a little too dense. Outside of the style restrictions, this is a solid ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy reddish dark amber color with a moderate pillowy tan head on there. Nose has some grass and light grains, with hints of toasty caramel coming through. Taste is slightly sweet up front, but has a nice substantivealt backbone with caramel and toast to it.
