Grain, molasses, and tea aroma with a tinniness. Clear and thin looking mahogany, with a thin head. Watery mouthfeel and very tinny. Pretty nice charred oak and malt flavor Weak lettuce finish. One could easily drink a lot of these without any ill effects.

It’s dark brown with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of cabbage, malt and caramel. The flavor is slightly sweet and it has notes of malt, caramel and slightly dry citrus. Overall a bit on the thin side.

Nothing too impressive here, but this beer is great on a warm night as it is extremely drinkable. Good intro to darker beers for your budweiser drinking friends.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/husks, scorched caramel), with a light note of cardboard. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Not much going on here, but then again it does smell a bit old. Never had much luck with this brewery’s stuff.

Good dark color with good head and some lacing. Smell was more like a grain/bread smell than anything else. Now after say all the good things, the taste was disappointing. It tasted like a nothing special light beer.

Bottle. Pours pale black with a spare light brown head, mostly diminishing, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (caramel, nutty), light hops (grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of soap. Light bodied, slick texture, light carbonation and a chalky finish. Light sweetness, acidity and bitterness; very bland beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a huge fluffy off-white head. The aroma is a little skunked with some noticeable maltiness. The skunkiness in the aroma is too distracting for me to pick out other scents. Ugh, green bottles should be banned. Anyway, the mouthfeel is thick and creamy. The initial flavour is slightly skunked, much like the aroma. Past the skunkiness, there isn’t much flavour and tastes kind of watery up until the finish. The finish is very malty with notes of caramel, bread, and molasses. Skunk persists through the finish, but doesn’t completely ruin it. The only thing that seems mildly enjoyable is the finish. The rest of the experience is a chore. This is very sub-par, and the skunkiness isn’t helping at all. If they put some effort into bottling in brown bottles I’d purchase another one to make sure this tasting wasn’t just a rarely spoiled bottle. But alas, it’s a green bottle, so I instantly don’t care to make a second attempt.
