2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear copper hued body with a small off-white head that doesn’t last. Aromas are quite sweet, caramel/crystal malt, a good amount of fruity (British like) yeast esters, strawberries, light hops. A touch of vegital, DMS like aromas. Flavors are strongly of caramel, crystal malt, tea, lightly hoppy, iced tea. Bland, but not completely undrinkable. Medium bubbles, lower body. Really bland.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours a nice clear deep rosy red amber with thin tan head. The aroma offers up dark fruity estery notes like various cherries and cherry hard candy as well as slight malty notes and spicy black licorice. The taste seems to beam with sweet cherry dark fruity esters and spicy black licorice. Man the more I drink the more anise and black licorice like spiciness I get along with lingering cherry candy notes. Interesting.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz bottle. Pours dark amber with medium beige/tan head. Aroma is pretty good - a little spice, a little zest, a little bready malt. Palate is sweet and metallic upfront and quickly recedes, leaving behind a lot of corn/grain/malt flavor and an unwanted sort of putrid bitterness. Somewhat complex and interesting, but not that good.
