3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber color, not a very pale ale. Generous off-white head fades to a small but dense covering that leaves some lace behind.
Sweet, rich grainy malty smells, caramalts, toffee scents dominate, some light grassy and citrusy (orange) hops.
Tastes much as the smell led me to imagine. Sweet caramalts dominating the impression, but it is "dry" somewhat on the finish as the grassy and citrus hops pop in.
Pretty smooth, moderately carbonated medium bodied. Fairly drinkable, nothing special.

12oz bottle-A light orangish amber body with a huge white head and an aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of the same with a dry finish. Not bad but not good. Another Columbus overly carbonated beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very drinkable. Nice balanced yet intense cascade hops. Not anything to get excited about, but a good example of the style. I continue to come back to it

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[bottle] Light amber in color, clear. Aroma is pure citrus- cascade all the way. Crisp flavors, more hoppy citrus. Sweet malt flavors are a bit plain for me, (maybe its the specially kilned crystal), but this still remains a decent, drinkable beer.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Had this beer on 1/22/2006. This thing sucks, I open the bottle and it goes all over. I tried to pour it and it foamed up over the glass and just kept coming out of the top of the bottle. Color is a pale brown. Carbonation is not as high as you would think with the way it foamed up all over the place and the head dropped down to nothing. Aroma is a bit sour. Taste is light and tinny. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. Finish comes on with a sweet caramel like taste and a sharp bitterness. It reminds me of a home brew that went bad. Overall its just bad, this is just one of the worst beers I have had.
