2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Pours a deep amber body with a large, pillowy, whiteish head.
Smell: Very vague aroma, yielding only small hints of pale malts and maybe citrus.
Taste: Incredibly faint flavor, I suppose the politest way to describe it is to use the word "subtle". Weak hop flavor, low bitterness. Watery finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Disappointing. Nothing really grabs you, nothing intices you to drink beyond those first couple sips.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy reddish brown amber brew with an average off-white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring top. Aroma of light caramel malt, a touch of toffee, flowery hops, and a tart berry character. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with some tart caramel malt and toffee. Finish is semi-sweet, a touch of fruity aftertaste with a dry citrus hop finish that slowly disappears after the finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, no date. Thanks to Colin for this. Hazy red with brown highlights and a one finger beige head, fair retention. Aroma of toffee, light earth and citrus hops. Flavor adds a little bit of either stale malt or hops--I can’t really tell which. There is still the toffee and light hops, Little bitterness in the semisweet caramel finish. Low carbonation with a medium thin body. Not too bad--not that great, either.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Carmel in color, moderate to large foamy sandy hued head, very nice lacing.   Soft malt nose, seems to be mildly sweet.
Hop aspect is minor.   Pale malt flavor, very slight cereal and/or cardboard.   Minor enough to where it doesn’t really
detract.   Little to no hop presense.   Light, fairly clean, easy on the palate.   I spoze as an English Style Brown thats why
its not that agressive or at least assertive.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Does sorta fall off at the finish.   Splains
why its fairly clean as not much lingers.   Light, quick to finish, but with some mild malt flavors.   Not bad, certainly worth a

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Jack’s Bar in the Fisherman’s Wharf area. Small ivory smooth head that was fully lasting, transparent, nice looking lacing, fast-rising carbonation, and a brown hue. Nose was malty, light hop notes, crisp and clean. The flavor was malty lightly hoppy, lightly bitter, crisp and clean tasting Tingly mouthfeel and light-medium body. So-so for the style, but not one that I would go out of my way for.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at City Beer Store in SF. Very nice orange-tinted hazy brown, no head was poured. Aroma is clean and crisp (not necessarily in a good way) with a little cucumber and nutty funk. Thin mouthfeel, fast-disappearing taste of bread, grass and malt. Good to try but wouldn’t get it again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a copper brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.
