3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid looking amber with an inch and 1/4 head. Fresh, vernal, fruity hop mix in the nose. Moderate herbal/fruity hop flavor is nice and easy with a briefly bitter finish. Fair balance and certainly a decent brew--I would say would concur with the assessment that this has a grainy taste to it. Minimal complexity. An easy quaff. An aptly named ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very interesting ale. Lightly hopped with a strong grain presence: charred wheat, almost lemongrassy - like in Thai food. The grains are definitely smokey and a bit bitter in themselves. The malt concoction I can only assume is some "mountain blend" (as in vegetation or yokel folk I'm not sure), although I'm not sure I was a huge fan of the flavor, the malt surely does peak my interest.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light aroma, light head but pretty reddish tones shining through. Very weak flavor, not bad, but very non-existant. Bland tasting medium grade ale.
