2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a pint glass. Appearance is amber with a sligt off white head. Nose brings light pine and floral hops with some biscuit malt. Taste is mostly malt with a tad bit of earthy bread. Light to medium feel. Drinkability is pretty good, but this is pretty tame overall.
Serving type: bottle

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a minimal fizzy white head. The nose is toasty and slightly grainy malts with a little iced tea and some light floral hops. The flavor is mostly husky crystal malt with some moderate bitterness. Finishes with a little caramel sweetness, toasted malt, and a lingering dusty graininess. Slightly sticky and clingy with moderate fizzy carbonation. A pretty forgetable beer. Meh.

Bottle: Strong aroma of caramel and light hops. Pours a dark, slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Nice lacing. LIght malty initial flavor with a moderate caramel and light hop finish. Not bad and definitely better than an average of 2.82.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from the Woodmans on Gammon Road, Madison WI (October 2006) consumed mid-November from a Chouffe tulip glass. Thick, stable creamy-frothy off-white head tops the ruddy red-bronze body which bubbles away nicely for a while....touch buttery in the nose though some nice rough woody-twiggy hops manage to struggle through; with warmth the nose seems to fade to almost nothingness though a hint of diacetyl remains.....cherry-apple fruitiness in the body ebbs to a serious dryness and burnt-bitter roastiness....on the whole this is very dry and boring with almost no real flavor, with rough carbonation and bland soda-wateriness making this another major disappointment from this once well-regarded (by me anyway) brewery.

A decent session beer. Lightly roasted malt and grain. Very light hops. Nice amber color and some sediment. Nothing exciting, a little nut flavor, and very drinkable.
