2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
First review. Aroma is slightly floral, with bready character mixed in there. Nothing jumps out, kinda simple. Copper color. Light sweetness, light hop character. Nothing great, but it’s not terrible. It’s drinkable, but I won’t be running out and buying this one again. I had it on tap a few weeks ago, and the malt character was significantly more pronounced then.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is my first review, so maybe I was being too critical, but I was very unimpressed at first. And I really noticed the bitter (sour?) lingering finish--almost like old Budweiser. But when I stepped back and just drank it, it wasn’t that bad. Decent mouthfeel. Kind of a fizzy, effervescent finish feel. I didn’t get any hops at all from this. It was all malty, or maybe even yeasty. I would drink it again, but I’m sure there are many, many beers of the same style that are much better at this price.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fra dåse, på toppen af The Standard, New York. Ravfarvet, klar med et lille off-white skum. Glat og karakterløs aroma af - tja, karamelsuppe og lidt støvede blomster. Venlig. Minder mere om en dansk classic end en "american farmhouse pale ale", sådan som etiketten prøver at bilde mig ind.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 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 and slightly hop bitter finish. Friendly beer, nothing off-putting about it. 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 perfect.

Can sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks Ariel. Hazy amber with white wave. Hoppy, a little skunky aroma, skunky bitterness in the mouth. Medium body, slightly bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml can into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden with a light fluffy white head and some lacing. Basic light citrus nose with a mild malty flavor, and a bit of caramel. Not much to it.

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.
