3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Golden, fairly clear, large frothy eggshell colored head... as it settles it takes on the
look of pancake batter.   Nice lacing, soft carbonation.   Soft hop nose, slight mealiness, a bit of
grainy maltiness, slight earth.   As it warms I get more soil like aromas.   Semi-sweet on the tongue,
not real hoppy, a little bit of biscuit and toffee.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering
earthy/soily malts.   Not very hoppy at all, in fact seems like it could be a weak Amber Ale.   Prefer a
bit more bite in mine.   Its well done, clean, but just not my style.   Decent tho.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Extra buttery butterscotch nose. Clear amber, medium head, good lacing. Flavor is still buttery, but to a lesser extent and with hay notes. Not sure what the point is with this beer, unless the brewer is trying to popularize a new style: Imperial Diacetyl Ale

650ml bomber pours a golden/orange color with about a finger of white head and some nice thin lacing. Aroma is mild citrus hops and caramel. Taste is light grapefruit with some earthy notes and a light caramel malty sweetness. Decently balanced with a medium body and light carbonation and some pleasing flavors.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; poured a ruddy brown/orange/copper color with a medium sized head. Aroma of caramel, bit of vanilla, very sweet, some veggies. Not a great aroma. Flavor more hoppy than expected; but the malt and yeast notes are not very appealing to me. Sweet vegetables. Not a huge fan.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a pretty large white head. Aroma is sweet fruit notes, touch of yeast, mild hops. Flavor is okay, but something seems like it is "missing" in this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours light golden with a modest off-white head and a fruit and pine aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a nice hop profile to create a satisfyingly balanced brew with a smooth bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
a strange mash of interesting hops flavors with sharp flavors. the many hops bring together a wild assortment taste. the taste is slightly floral. An interesting idea that is not the best at the end,

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is well balanced with citrus hops and corn like malt. The appearance is orange gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin but OK. Overall a great season beer.
