2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Krampus can from UDBeernut, thanks!) Pours a light gold color with a thin white head. Aroma smells like cereal (kind of a honey-nut cheerios vibe) then abruptly, and without any rhyme or reason, switches to OFF! bug spray, maybe chlorine, and some cheap perfume. Flavor is better than the aroma (I was expecting the worst) with just a subtle honey-like sweetness, faint, papery hops, and a lingering, grainy finish. Mouthfeel is light and carb is ok. Overall this beer embodies the spirit of Secret Krampus.

Canned beer, served in a pint glass. kind of a dull lagery type taste - but easy drinking.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can; medium amber color, big tan head. Bready slightly malty aroma. Close to medium malty flavor with a hint of doughyness in the middle, sweet finish. Hops are barely there. Friendly beer, nothing off-putting about it. As a pale ale this beer is not impressive, but as a session beer it has my attention. It has the same calorie count and ABV as the top selling adjunct lagers and as an alternative to one of them, this beer is good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear deep golden color with thin creamy white head, excellent lacing and average visible carbonation. Aroma of grainy and caramel malt, mild citrus hops and spices. Taste starts with light sweet malt, following is refreshing lemony, mouthfeel is mild spicy, while finish is light to moderate bitter. Medium to full body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty cool ale...

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A citrus black end with a lasting hop finish is preceded by a very watery thin lightly mated ale. I don't get any farmhouse in this, it's more of a pilsner. The color is golden with nice lacing.

Neat looking can. Pours hazy amber with a small, off-white head. Slight spice on the taste. Not much else. Meh
