2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Casanova (Hudson, WI). Pours a crisp amber pour, some reddish copper glow, with just a faint haze. A moderate frothy tannish white head dies to a small layer, light lacing. Aromas are crisp cereal grains, touches of caramel, toast, and biscuits. Not too sweet, as florals and grass compliment, with a light dryness, touches of sweet malts still coming through. Simple yet balanced, a light hop dusting on a relatively clean beer. Initial is lighter bodied, touches of dry cereal grains, biscuits, some light toast mix with some grassy and floral hops, light and clean, a touch of soap. Pretty well balanced, with a nice toasty grain bill, some light grass hops, touches of sweeter toffee. I donít mind this, a clean more toasty sessioner, with good toast, biscuits, and a touch of more substantial sweet toffee. A touch of tea, cereal. Light grassiness. Clean finish with just a touch of spiciness from the hops. Not bad, but forgettable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Coppery amber color with a thin, fizzy light beige head that faded quickly. Aroma is sweet, syrupy malt and grain. Flavor is cereal grains and light, grassy hops. Palate is light and a bit watery with a quick, lightly bitter finish. A mild, unassuming beer that goes down easy. It wonít blow you away but you could definitely do worse.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle poured into my new Darkness tulip...Pours a medium copper with a thin light tan head...A horrible aroma of rye and vomit and sawdust, yum canít wait to try this...The taste is even worse, its stale vomit. I canít even drink this.
This is a horrible beer that should be avoided at all times. Not even worth the tick.

I love central waters but this was just generic swill. Do us all a favor central waters, stop brewing this and bottle and sell us Exodus.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz. Bottle: Faint grain and caramel aroma. Poured amber in color with a small, loose, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Flavor is slightly sweet. Tastes of grain, malt, and light noble hops. Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Grain finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from a Sample Pack - Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Smells crisp, toasty and sweet, with light, nutty malt and and a real light floral hop note. Taste is more of the same, though itís a bit watery. Surprisingly has a bit of sharpness on the finish, though I think thatís some grassy hoppiness rather than any alcohol. Not bad, but not my favorite taste profile. Iíd grab lots of beers to session before this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a clear amber color with a finger-thick off-white head that leaves some sloppy lacing in the glass. Aroma of toast, dry grains, roasted barley malts, earth, oats, cereal- just a ton of grainy malts. Flavor of cereal, corn, barley malts, oats, wheat, faint fruit, and grass. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a very organic, grainy, earthy mouthfeel. I didnít know this was organic until just now, and I totally pick up on that character in a big way. This isnít a great beer, but itís certainly interesting and worth trying.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours chill hazy deep copper with 1-finger bubbly off-white head. Nose is grainy caramel malt, lemongrassy hops, apricotty fruit. Tastes medium to light in palate heft, with caramel malt, grainy notes, subdued hops, and some fruity finishing hints. Not terribly complex.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber in color. Decent hop presence in the nose, some esters. Thin body. Any malt characteristics drown out by hop water flavor. Drinkable, but lacking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with a touch of red. Scent is a bit sour with nutty overtones. Flavor starts smooth and rich with malts and finishes crisp and dry with a lingering nutty flavor. Very interesting.
