2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden pour. Nose is surprisingly clear. A soft malt aroma with a kiss of light hops still coming through. A bit of age showing although the hopping is still there. Crisp and clean although certainly a little bit simple.

Pale yellow pour. Crisp slightly hoppy malt taste. Beer is better than overproduced macros, but not all that great. Rated 3/25/04

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold with fluffy white head and lace. Sour, papery, light malt and good bitter. Thin but with good carbonation. Not as good as the 2.7 would indicate.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Courtesy jcwattsrugger - Thanks!Mildly cloudy orange, no head. lots of corn in the aroma, also kinda sour. Flavor pretty much follows suite, plus some biting into an aspirin bitterness. Not a whole lot to this.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color. Aroma is of malts, a little bit of skunk, yeast, lactose, and some earthiness. Flavor is a little bit of a metallic flavor, hops, malts, and yeast. It has a little bit of malty metallic aftertaste. This might be skunked so that will alter the rating. RIP Buzzards Bay.

Bottle from Maniac’s Richmond Tenth Gathering. Clear golden pour with wispy white head. Nose is like creamed fresh corn. Flavor is similar. Astringent. Pretty lacking. Extra point for cool brewery name.
