3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from a local Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a medium frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and bitter floral, spicy hops. The taste is caramel malts, some toastiness, bitter herbal hop notes. Lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Decent, but fairly boring.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of nice herbal, piney and slightly floral hops and some malt. Flavor has light malty sweetness with some caramel notes, herbal hops and a bitter finish, a bit alcoholic. Medium-bodied. Not bad, quite refreshing even (it’s not easy to find refreshing Heller Bocks).

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
355mL. Pours a super carbonated clear light orange. Small white foam. Nose is candied orange syrup, small perfume, wet cardboard. Taste is very sticky, boozy, sickly medicinal, some saltwater sweat. Palate is cereal stake grain like a malt liquor. Very poor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Capone’s, and I believe this is my 2011 maibock cherry popper. Dark straw pour with 3-finger fluffy white head. Nose is floral and earthy, with hopcitrus, apricotty fruit, definite noble hops. No transient hops in this one; no sir. Tastes earthy, rich, fruity, with a big hop element and some cloying sweetness. Smooth finish, and very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a clear amber color, small off-white/white head. Aroma is light malts, grassy (almost like grass after a rainstorm), cloves. Flavor had notes of light malts, lemongrass, fresh cut grass, bitter hops. Certainly not what I expected, though not really in a bad way. Keep brewing beers like this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Textbook pour, golden orange, quite active, with a staunch but thin bright white topping of rocky foam. The aroma is, well, beery ... sweet and malty with a hint of citrus. The beer drinks with a rich texture, silky and smooth. A beautiful example of style, this quaffable beer has an evident alcoholic kick, but is sublimely refreshing with a mellow sweet character.
