3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at April 2007 Brewnosers meeting. Amber with a frothy white head. Light caramel, orange, leafy, piny aroma. Light caramel and toasty flavour with a fresh piny, citrusy, lightly pithy bitter finish. Medium bodied, refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 Nose is more lemon then hops, but somehow works. Amber in color. Hops became more evident when tasted, but itís not a highly hopped IPA. Quite refreshing when poured into a frosted glass. I find it better then most the reviewers and enjoyed the flavor. Also, the convenience of a can come in handy. Nice ale for the summer, and I enjoyed the sample given to me.

OK, so Butternuts is known for cheap canned craft beer. This cannot, and is not meant to compete with more high falutiní craft brews. Decent grassy aroma and a nice middling malt character with a rise to the hop bite near the finish. An easy dinking BBQ IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber body, nice white head, slightly hoppy nose. Thin body, similar to the pale ale but with more bitterness. Drinkable, not a great example of the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(can - 12 oz) Clear golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is very light with some dry hops, grass, and some metal probably from the can. Flavor is very bitter and hoppy at the start with a smooth malt middle and a very dry and sour finish. Not terrible. The fish on the can rocks out pretty well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow can. Distinctive (whay can I say?). Low hopped version of IPA, could be Pale ale. Astringent thin hop finish, after malty, slightly sour mid palate. Not bad, but not worth getting excited over,

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On the can trail (it travels easy, even in a coat pocket), this was an IPA I would not have otherwise tried. A bit light though not watery. Dryness there, so-so IPA, very drying finish. Easy drink, a drop of fruit.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Saw this at the store and figured if I could find another good beer in a can why not. Had a sip from the can, then poured it. Amber color with a big and thin head. Slight hops in the aroma, sweet malts. Some hops in the taste, but an underlying fruity sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours a hazy amber with an average size off-white head. Mild aroma of pineapple, caramel malt and maybe some citrus hops -- a bit of an odd one. Watery flavour of, well, not much. Itís a little sugary sweet with some hints of fruit and a light slightly unpleasant bitter finish, thereís not much going on there. Light bodied. Pretty bland stuff and not very good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can (12oz). Never a dull moment with the package design from these guys - pretty ugly. Pretty dead-sounding open, poured flat-looking clear amber with not much head. Aroma of pineapple syrup, caramel malt, not much bitterness or alcohol, but I do get some odd flower pollen bite. Taste is bitter, metallic and harsh, but not hoppy at all. Thin, watery mouthfeel, flat and harsh - just a bad IPA.
