2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep orange with a slight haze, faint white head. Straightforward sweet and grainy malts completed by a racy floral hop touch. Quite bitter, certainly dry, brings forth slight nutty oiliness, but remains tame in all its componenents. Light bodied, crisp texture. From average to average.

Beautiful browish copper appearance. Smooth pour with limited head and surprisingly little aroma even with nose deep in the glass. It appears the scent needs to go through the mouth rather than the nostrils; I enjoyed a lingering aroma of the beer’s hops for a few moments following my first few sips. Surprisingly strong hoppiness for an amber lager. Not bad, but left me feeling like this beer is trying to compete in a different category

(02.22.06) 12 oz brown bottle received as gift in a trade with Thaichile. Yeast conditioned bottle only 75% full with about 3” head space. Slight gusher on pouring. Pours hazy amber with small white head. Soft carbonation. Juicy fruit esters on nose. Light-to-medium bodied amber ale that starts dry with wisp of malt sweetness and light malt flavor. Slight sharpness on mouth. Finishes dry with light nutty malt and bitterness fade. Slight metallic aftertaste. Thin, watery flavored, overly dry, and lacking complexity. No discernable oxidation products, despite large head space. Borderline drinkable. Maybe an old bottle?

Kinda stinky cereal malt aroma. Over-carbonated. Big head, good label, lightly hazy, medium PA-coloring. Don’t know that I’d call this a ’Dark Lager’ - it’s really no darker than say, Yuengling. Makes a big icecream head. Tart, seedy. Very, very fizzy. Finishes quick and moderately sugary. From the bottle. A mishmash. I’m really a bit puzzled, looking at the other ratings, which say things like ’mahogany’ and ’dark amber’. This beer is clearly labeled ’Fisherman’s Brew’ but is only a medium orange-amber.

pepper spice and malt flavor to this cloudy tea looking brew. a bit too little hop and this brew tastes like something is missing. a whole dimension of character, flavor!? call it what you like but at least the palate is open to insert something, what !!! with a good enough name, bottle and appearance cape ann reformulate this brew a bit and show us your skills. good luck since it won’t take too much.

Thinnish head with floating yeast on top. Aroma is very sweet and malty. Flavor is malty and also sweet, palate is very sticky and has a lingering roasted malt character.

Pours an orange amber with a thin white head and malty aroma. Taste is of toasty malt, grain, and metallic, pretty simple and lacking anything special in the flavor. Nothing great with this brew
