2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Sprecher Brewery (Glendale, WI). The final of the 4 "Modern" beers from the secondary brewery Sprecher is doing. Pours a darker fuller golden hue, good glow and firm haze. A big cakey whitish head atop dies to a firm layer, laces well. Aromas are crisp cereal grains, bready malts, and a gentle kiss of spicy bread yeast. Some faint floral and earthy hops. Initial is fairly clean and simple, gentle kiss of dryness up front, a faint waft of lemon, moving quickly into bready and cereal malts. Bread, grains, and gentle sweetness kiss, making this light bodied beer offer a fairly clean experience. A gentle spice, some earthy grassy hops into the backend offer some mellow bitterness. A bit bland overall, light and easily drinkable, with some mellow balance. Not as bad as anticipated. Much better than the Onion Bomb they make.

Pours a light golden color. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Taste is also slightly hoppy. Not a terrible beer, just pretty bland.

Blond and boring. Basically a commodity beer with a craft ingredient or two.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of lime juice and aluminum. Color is a very pale clear yellow with a fluffy white head that sticks around for a spell. The flavor is clean, but terribly thin pale malt, cotton, and hay. Mouthfeel dissipated just as quickly.

Iím really surprised to see all the low rating for this beer? It was a great all around beer with a nice malt aroma and equivalent flavor. I just donít see the problem with it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ok Chameleon, this is the only beer you make that I havenít rated yet. Make it count suckos.
This ale pours a very pale yellow color with a big fluffy white head that seems to be fizzing away rapidly before me.
The aroma is toast, limestone, and breakfast cereal... not enough breakfast cereal to be outright offensive... but enough to keep me from wanting to take a drink.
The flavor is fruity and lightly malty with a little bit of garbage and an odd lingering sweetness not really a sticky or heavy sweetness but sweet enough to keep this from being too awful refreshing.
I suppose the nicest thing one can say about 3/4 of the lineup from these guys is, "well, itís not as bad as Hop on Top"

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Sprecherís brewery gift shop in Glendale, WI. Pours a very slightly hazy light gold with a thin white head. Aroma is toasted malt and grain, slightly sweet. Somewhat fizzy palate. Taste is watery grain, and a bit sweet. Nothing really offensive here, but nothing to hold my interest either.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet toasted malt, light apple and grains. Taste of honey, sweet malt and grains. Soft carbonationÖ ok for what it is, but thatís not saying much.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle I picked up somewhere in Wisconsin during my recent trip. Pours a translucent gold color with a small white head that soon fades to a film. The aroma is mild with sweet grains and a touch of spice. The taste is watered down sweet cereal grains. Palate is thin a watery with weak carbonation. Finishes short (thankfully). Overall: Waaay to sweet--drainpour. This would only appeal to kids with underdeveloped palates that prefer a bland sweet entree.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.
