Sample at the brewpub. Pour is clear amber with a off white head that does not last. There is no aroma to this beer. Has a very light mouthfeel. Has a crispness to it. Flavor is caramel malt sweetness with no finish. Overall just a ok brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear dark amber-copper color with a medium thin and creamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt, with a touch of hops. Medium, smooth body with a sweet caramel malt character. Hints of roasted nuts and hops as well. The finish is sweet toasted malt with a lingering malty aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish body with a slightly off white head. Textbook malty aromas with hints of cookies and bread. Carmel on the palate. Only real knock is that it might need to be a little less sweet. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Cornerstone: Lasting large creamy light beige head. Medium amberish body. Light grainy roasted & toasty malt aroma, clean otherwise. Grainy & toasted malt flavor. Finish is dry & toasted malt as is the aftertaste. Very little roast in the flavor. Pretty clean of fruitiness or other off flavors. Fuller light body, soft medium cabonation, & creamy m/f. Overall a pretty good amber lager. Clean, but a little thin in overall flavor.

Another one from here that had a hop bite to it, and well didn’t taste good at all.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one is quite pretty with a light mahogany body and a nice, off-white head. There’s very little aroma, but the warm malts come through nicely in the flavor making this the more interesting cousin of the Grindstone Gold. The caramel and toast malt pique your interest but are short lived, leaving you with the feeling of potential unfulfilled.
