2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out a deep orange amber color with a big off white head. Aroma is nutty and caramelly, and little else. Taste was amber malts, with a bit of wet cereal grain. Light body, a little disappointingly light. Easy to drink, but not a pleasure.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
TPSA. Pours a medium to darkish amber. Caramel, molasses, fruit, and spice on the nose, is followed up by the same on the tongue. Finish turns oddly bitter -- and not in a hops way, in a ’what the heck was that?’ way. Promising start, mediocre end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at MDL in Overland Park, Kansas. Pour is a clear amber golden with a one inch light tan head. Head falls with nice lacing. Aroma is wet malt grain, cracker, mildly sweet. Taste is the mild grain malt, picks up a bit on the sweetness from the nose. Decently clean flavor, though gets a bit muddled between mineral and sweet malt as it warms. Palate is thin to medium bodied, dry mineral in the back, hint of cardboard in the finish. Easy drinking beer.
