2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber with off-white head, barely perceptible aroma of dried apples and hay, watery toffee flavor with slight hops and processed taste. Not offensive but not very interesting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Joe’s Place in Iowa City, IA. I have had this beer several times in the past, but hadn’t tried it in a while. Clear amber color with thin tan head. Not much nose with some hay and caramel in the mouth. Metallic aftertaste. Not particularly good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 Rerate. On tap. The taste is a slightly fruity caramel with some light bready notes. The aroma is slight apple with some cheddar cheese. Mouthfeel is medium. This finishes with a cheesy aftertaste.

This was a little too sweet and unbalanced for the low gravity... had a grainy caramel flavor (caramunich/caravienne?)
