Pours amber with an off white head and the aroma is weak or undetectable. Malty sort of scott taste with moderate carbonation but smooth going down. I don’t detect the hop finish described in the description. Good enjoyable Ale.

Good tasty stuff. Full flavored ale taste. Well balanced with all the flavors it should have. I could drink a bunch of these.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2005 Standard ale straight from the brewery itself. As this was the last I tried, it didn’t. make that much of an impact. Beautiful rich, brown color.

ON TAP: light fruity smells, auburn color, low tight head. Toaste and fruity malt. Big mouth feel. Somewhat interesting and certainly well-crafted.

Pours a great copper color with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, malt, florals, and chardonnay. Tastes hoppy, with a nice malt, toffee, honey, cognac, fruit, and floral finish. Nice complexity. A great beer.

Slightly different from the Lager. Lighter amber color with a small white head. Decent hoppy aroma, malty. Same is true for the flavor. Well-hopped all around. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting beer. both mild and at the same time a little sharp. Pours with a substantial off white head, mild biscuity, bready aroma. Amber/brown in color, not too much body but a little malt flavor. Hops start out smooth and finish bitter. Not bad, but not my favorite

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber, brown, clear color with small white head. Very malty aroma. Nice. Flavor is malty with a bitterness that comes and goes suddenly--like a ship passing in the night or a bad cliche. Generally good, seetness turns sacharin and has strange aftertaste.
