2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yes, has a sweet volatile aroma. Slightly darker than the ubiquitous pale yellow american lager. Has a light orange tinge. Smells like candy and tastes like candy at first. Taste is not bitter but certainly has some sort of malt bite. Initially the bitterness is interesting going from mild to medium coarse after a few sips. Cannot keep up with Victory St. Boisterous Hellerbock as far as enjoyability goes. Certainly can taste the 6%. Could use a little more sweetness. Good creamy carbonation. Overall on par with Flying Dog Heller, Hofbräu München Maibock and Rogue Dead Guy. Finish is a medium lingering industrial sides of tongue bitterness.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a burnt-orange. Head looks real nice though. I detect some bready malts, alcohol, and a whiff of hops. Very odd taste. Very...odd... but tolerable. After a few other beers, this one might taste better, but I feel like I’m licking the bottom of a dirty shoe. That was found in a manure field. With cows. Eh.

very bland. Color is god awful. Aroma is just not that. And the taste is slightly sweet with a rancidly sour aftertaste. It is slightly higher in alcohol but that’s not enough to pull this beer out of a bad rating

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not much to this one, but not bad either. Pours to a pale reddish-orange, with medium off-white head that lingered a hile then dissipated to okay lacing. Aroma was slightly on the malty sweet side, but really couldn’t detect much. Mouthfeel was slightly tingly, and the flavor was an okay blend of dark fruits and malty sweetness. This all led to a finish that was slightly sweet and chewy, though the alcohol never did make itself known.
A pretty decent session beer, and one of the better from JW Dundee, though that dosen’t take much.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from variety pack. Amber color with small white head. Aroma was weak. Flavor had light hops and malt. Strange overall

Very average offering. I did finish the bottle, so it couldn’t be that bad. You do feel the alcohol, which is surprising at 6.2%. Very American (and that is not a good thing in this case!).

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, a decent amount of light malts. With little hops. Tastes like many average Euro lagers. Sllight metallic hops, nothing special what so ever. But hey look who brewed it.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale copper color with a small, thin white head which disipates quickly. a Touch of hops in the boquet with a slight malt aroma.Slightly bitter with a corny sweet back ground on a light to medium mouth feel. Nothin special but not bad for a mass produced beer I prefer their amber ale.

Similar pour to the jw pale ale except lighter in color - like a light golden/orange with similar sudsy head...disappears fast. Smells like pee on grass. Sweet hops... too sweet... like sour almost...somwhat foul

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated 8/24/06: Best offering from JW Dundee’s yet, although that doesn’t mean it’s great. Little aroma, but I was able to detect some solid maltiness. Pour is a light to medium copper color with an impressive white head and good lacing. Full mouthfeel bordering on the creamy side, nice clean finsih with an alcohol kick. Flavor is solid, has that strong malt content that a bock should clearly have, this one is more on the calmer blander side for this style but it is enjoyable. The alcohol kick is there in the taste as well which I have always liked in a brew, decent beer to knock back a couple quick ones on. Overall enjoyable but still not impressive from a mediocre brewery.
