3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - GBBF 2008. A copper coloured beer with some whitish bubbles for a head. This is a nicely hoppy beer with citrus and pine notes. Just a touch of woodiness sets it apart from being an APA. I liked this a lot.

12 oz bottle jcwattsrugger was kind enough to let me steal at the Richmond Summer Gathering. Labeled as "Colonel Blides Cask Ale". Hazy amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel and citrus (tangerine?) nose. Nice earthy flavors, floral bite, caramel and citrus. Fairly clean, lightly bitter finish. Nice.

Amber color with a mildly hoppy aroma that has some light sweetness in there. Flavor is quite hoppy - floral and citrus, with some bready sweetness at the end. Decent Altbier.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber in color with a creamy white head and beautiful lacing. Everything about the appearance of this beer made me want to drink it. Aroma is floral hops, but the taste is balanced nicely between the hops and sweet malts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy orange amber with a large foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of citrus, cereal grains, malt sweetness, fresh hops. Flavor is smooth and balanced. Fresh hops meet caramel malt sweetness, peppery notes and some tropical fruits.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for sharing this one.
Light amber body with a fleeting, white head above.
Restrained malt aroma.
Well balanced mixture of hops & malt in the flavor with a soft, dry finish.
