3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vintage 2007, courtesy of Papsoe. It’s beautiful, red-golden with a sweet and vinous aroma with notes of raisin, fruit, roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has a malty sweetness, it’s slightly vinous with notes of raisin, caramel and slightly grapefruit-like hops. It’s surprisingly light in the overall impression, but nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Grainy nose with light notes of ethanal (acetaldehyde) and stronger notes of spent mash, honey and peppery hops. Sweet, boozy flavor with light cereal grains and mild, herbal bitterness. Full-bodied and chewy with medium carbonation. Lengthy, heavily sweet, mildly bitter finish. Imperial pilsener all the way. Not really my thing, but good for what it is. Spendy though!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Huge flip top bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of corn and malt liquor (since I don’t have too much experience reviewing Malt Liquors, this is only my 2nd to DFH’s, I’ll leave it as generic, nasty malt liquor). It takes some balls to label this as your premier, Brew Master Private Reserve beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A peachy colour with sizzly initial head. Fizzy carbonation, medium mouthfeel with some fruit like matter in it. Not too drinkable, but better than I expected.I did not quite like it, thanks for the sample Dan from Oak Park Buy Rite.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2006 vintage from Capone’s. Merdium gold pour with 2-finger whitish head. Aroma of grainy pale malt, some berry notes, and a pretty big apricot/peach waft to the olfactory receptors. The flavor was pale malty, on the sweet side, with some heavy syrup flavor and a touch of raspberry. Toward the end, it got a bit cloying and fell apart a little, but the first half was not bad at all. Better than I expected.
