2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Bottle. Poured a hazy amber with a thin (less than 1 finger) off white fizzy head that diminished totally and had some spotty clingy lacing.
The aroma was that of caramel malts and a musty yeast with a slight hint of dark fruit and citrus (orange I believe).
Taste was mildly malty with a notes of caramel and dark fruit throughout and slightly bitter sweet with a hint of citrus and a mild nutty flavor at the end. The flavor disappeared quickly after the swallow with just a hint of sweetness left behind.
Mouthfeel was very light in body and a little dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic beer with just a little bitter sweet flavor, but absolutely nothing special about it.

I also picked up a six-pack at a Food Lion for five bucks. Eden, NC Food Lion for being in the middle of nowhere actually has a nice little beer selection. Don’t confuse Pamlico with Bawlmer’s Pimlico neighborhood like I did. This amber had minor bitterness, caramel and chocloate flavors. If you try it, don’t expect anything special.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Found this for 5 bucks a sixer in Food Lion Kinston, NC, and this one sucked ass. The pour was dark straw with off-white head, with a nose of caramel malt, mild hops, and a sour mashy fruit twang. The flavor was caramel malty, with backup hops and a sour twinge that made me think this one may have begun merging onto infection highway. I may try another, or I may dump the rest of the sixer down the drain, depending upon how fast I go through the good beer I bought at Cindirene’s in Ayden, NC.

Bottle - pours an amber color, with a thin tan head and no lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel, and earth. Taste ia a malty, caramel and sweet/fruity flavor. An okay ale boardering on a lager. Nothing to write home about for sure.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber bodied topped with white head, decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, not very strong. Taste is mostly caramel sweetness with a dry finish, then some residual sweet nuttiness that lingers, unwelcome.
