3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Notes of bread, sour tart cherry, and a nice malty finish make this red/amber ale style a nice pour. Great color, too!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer has a mildly hoppy aroma. It is a cloudy, sediment filled, orange-brown color with no head. It is moderately thick to on the tongue and produces a mild nutty taste. It finishes slightly sour and the taste fades fast.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel dominates the aroma and a mild sweetness from the malts carries through the taste, although it does tussle a bit with bitter hops. A nice-looking beverage that loses its head soon after the pour. It’s in the middle of the Central Waters pack.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle from Steve’s Madison
Ar: Skunk. Way off. Some caramelly maltiness.
Ap: Light amber, relatively translucent, off-white 1" head.
T:Sweet, caramelly malt. Very mild hop balance.
P: Medium body, medium carbonation.
O: Way off. Got this from Steve’s about two months ago and it’s been in my fridge ever since. Huge disappointment, but I’m not by any means going to give up on Central Waters!

Tried this beer in a sample pack on my way through WI. It produced a soapy beige head on a clear red-brown body. Malts and a touch of herbal hops in the nose. Fruit malts in the flavor with herbal bitter piney notes. Touch of chocolate in the taste was unexpected and not welcome in a scotch ale. Strange metallic taste as well. Might have been a bad bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a pale reddish amber with minimal head and lace. Aroma was of sweet malts with a slight fruity hint. Taste was primarily of malts with a moderate hop edginess to finish it off. Palate was decent. Overall, a decent amber brew althought I am not sure if I will necesssarily revisit give what else is out there.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sits a dark amber in color. Malts dominate, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, pecan, toasted butter, and a very light floral bite midway through. Smooth and drinkable all the way through.

Clear, dark amber with off-white head. Light hops in the aroma, but not much else. A nice sweet flavor with decent bitterness at the end.

pint glass from bottle pour.. comes out a copper color, thin head, decent lacing on glass. aroma of caramel, fruit and faint hops. taste is malt dominated with some bitter hops in there as well. had high hopes for this one but it was nothing too special.
