2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Toffee nose, and shockingly, more of the same in the taste, Heath bars. Pale gold, not much head, nice retention pattern. Boring and bland but inoffensive, good session beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma/flavor of sweet earthy malts and some light hops. Thin and tastes watery and lightly malted. Easy drinking. Thanks Dan for buying this 12pk and taking acouple Sam Adams in trade.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours out a clear, mirthfully golden body with a finger’s worth of creamyish white foam. Fair lace deposits on the descent.
Smell: Pale malted barley with a distant breadiness with low, low hints of bruised apricots, florals, and sweet lemon. A mild aroma overall.
Taste: Faintly bready, though sufficiently sweet pale malts. Apricot jelly and a light infusion of citrus arrive simultaneously, along with a light bitterness. Lightly sweetish, fruity through the finish. As with the aroma and as one might anticipate from the aroma, there’s just not much going on here.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not bad, no, though it failed to satisfy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale golden amber with a fluffy but rapidly dissipating cream colored head that fades to a ring and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of toasted bread and caramel malts and a slight brush of lemon. Taste is bready and slightly sweet with a mild bitterness. Medium bodied and slight dry with a bitter finish. Not bad.

Not much going on here. Inoffensive but faint aroma and taste. At least the label is nice to look at.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fetching barmaid on the label, who had best not stoop to tie her shoes. Foggy golden ale. Sweet, tangy ale aroma - pleasant. Slightly tart, late bitterness, a little vacant. Not overly complex, but refreshing. Medium to slightly light body, mostly crisp but just a little flabby finish with a lingering bitterness. ABC liquors, Betton.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold, white frothy head.
Nose is mild, sweetly bready, maybe a hint of butterscotch in there....grains.
Light and creamy, easily drinkable.....
From a seasonal sampler at Walmart, of all places....
Thin overall, but not too bad actually.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle - pours cloudy gold with quickly diminishing white head and minimal head. Nose is the same hops used in pilsners. Flavor is caramel, champagne yeasts and a bit of honey. Taste is mildly sweet and ends a wee bit bitter. Body is medium light to medium with a thin and sticky texture. This easy to drink, but OK on flavors as in a summer brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with minimal head. Aroma is slightly malty with a little herbal hops. Not much there. Taste is light bitter. More malty than I expected. Light bodied with a thin texture. Flat carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not very good. But pretty much on par for most of the Dundee beers I’ve had.
