3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a glowing transparent copper amber with a thin covering of spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty and grainy caramel malt with a touch of hay and noble hops. Starts with some light malty sweetness and grain husk notes with some earthy bittering hops before a drier, smooth finish. Fairly true to style, but could be a bit cleaner.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured clear reddish-orange with a short-ish cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweeter caramel and redder fruits paired with a hit of vanilla and peat.. candied overall complexion that I enjoyed. The flavor had sweet caramel, toffee, and red fruits at the core.. spicy pine and earthy bitterness around.. finished with some sharp boozy notes and bitterness, losing some balance. Light-medium bodied and dry on the palate.. OK on the front half, but unnecessarily sharp on the back.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2010 Bottle from Festival Foods. The beer is a clear amber-gold color with a medium ivory white head that diminishes steadily. Spotty lacing. Grainy malt and fruit in the nose. Light body with a fruity character and flavors of caramel malt, crackers and mild hops. The finish is short and malty with a fruit aftertaste. Just average overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Central Water’s newest beer of 2009. On draught during the Great Taste of Midwest 2009 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some flowery hops and a hint of roasted nuts with honey. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, smooth texture with flavors of roasted caramel malt, and a hint of bread crust. Finish is medium bodied, with no bitterness but a malty and semi-sweet aftertaste.

Near copper color with a somewhat fizzy type head. What I might consider typical for the style. Dark caramel to toffee aromas, with just a hint of earthiness and light herbal hops. Has a bit more zip to the feel than I would prefer. Flavors are about right with some dark caramel, toasted malt and a bit of earthy hops. A bit more character than your average amber.

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.
