2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a thick white lasting head. Malty aroma with metallic tinge... Taste is malty, bicuit-like, slight hop bitterness... finishes with a malty sweetness. Kinda plain... I though Vulcan food was supposed to be so spicy that it would be difficult for most humans to consume... nice label on the bottle, though...

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I wonder if J Jonah Jameson finally caught Spiderman with that robot with his face on it? Lightly colored amber body complete with a tall pillowy crown. What the hell am I smelling? Nothing that’s good that’s what! Biscuity malts with a slight citrus, random peppery notes, and a ton of wet grass that have been left in a clear plastic garbage bag in the sun for a day. Nothing noteworthy in the taste just a plain tasting average beer with some quality to it. Grainy malts , sweet with no real hop profile you can pin down, slightly earthy, that’s all. easy to drink forgettable beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, shared with my father in law. Medium golden with a robust white head, briskly carbonated (what is Carbotek and why should I be impressed?). Aroma is flat out gross. Wet hair, wet compost, celery root, hints of earthy ginger. And it doesn’t get better with time-- it stays gross. Flavour is coarse grains with reedy earthy undertones, nuances of ginger and almonds. This is a mess. I’m melding it with my kitchen sink....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well, looks like J Jonah Jameson will finally catch spiderman with that robot with his face. Clear light amber brew that makes a large fluffy light tan head thanks to Carbotek??? Smells of green jello powder, sourdough and biscuit - both quite strong, an odd pungent aroma that can’t be nailed down, not really citrusy - weird and quite different. The taste has a bit more of the fruit that is recognizable. Drying with moderate peppery stuff, things and whatnot. Bit of caramel mixed in with the bready quality. Not a lot here but what hangs around hangs with power and promise that every sip with not be a wimpy one. One of those not great but highly drinkable and enjoyable brews that doesn’t require lots of attention.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml brown bottle. Deep gold pour, creamy white cap and some light lacing. Nose has light nuts, caramel, toasty notes. Taste is toasty and caramelly, slight grassy hop note at the end. Very low bitterness. Average body and carbonation. No real flaws, drinkable, but fairly basic.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle dispensed with CARBOtek Technology pours a pale amber color with a quick dissipating white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is pale malts and light grassy hops with a mild peppery finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A decent pale ale, but nothing really memorable.
