2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Clear and deep amber with a tinge of copper. Head almost completely disappeared, but it had a lively carbonation. Malts were very bready, grainy and husky. Minuscule amount of sweetness. Finished with a healthy amount of dry bitterness. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Not too bad, though it did seem a little unbalanced.

Pour on tap is slight orange with thin white head, aroma brings notes of some slight caramel, hints of earth, grass in there but a touch of buttery diacetyl in there. Taste brings the diacetyl to mix with caramel and biscuit notes, hints of grass, finishes fairly dry but slightly sweet.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rating from 3/06. On tap @ DD. Amber color. Caramel, toffee aroma. Taste is caramelly, mild earthy hops, hops mostly for bittering. Not too bad for what it is, a light amber lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Gold pour. Grainy and malty aroma and a surprisingly bitter flavor. Unpelasantly bitter actually. Not one I would go back for more.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden rule of beer drinking - the funkier the name, the crappier the beer. This watery brew has a horrible sweet flowery hop taste, like someone has put a shot of orange squash in the bottle. Better than Budweiser, I suppose. Iím pleased to say I havenít seen this close to home.
