3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle from "Habits" in S.Salem. $3.59
Very murky dark orange beer with a large,frothy,rocky cream head.
Aroma? not promising..sour mash, some caramel..touch of resiny hop
Taste is not as bad as i anticipated..its resonably malty with a nice resiny hop buzz.
Palate is OK noting bad nothing good.
Overall average amber ale really.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber split with SIL Byron. Pours red / amber with off white head. Pretty mild taste...a very pale ale - feels / tastes more pale ale over an APA...too mild for an APA. Smooth / mild / drinkable....not a complaint but milder than the usual APA....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. The pour is a clear amber orange with a decent off-white head. Nose is a bit cheesy, citrus hops, small tangerine. Taste is pretty intense tangerine almost as if a fruit beer...almost contrived peach flavor. Moderate bitterness. Sharper mouthfeel. Palate is clovey and tannic with a long medicinal aftertaste. Enjoyable though strange for style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. There was some sediment on the bottom of the bottle and after being rolled made this cinnamon colored beer quite hazy. It had a nice foam on top that had a gold tint to it and it never completely went away. Ron and his brother, Rick, reported an unpleasant odor but not so in my bottle. It was fruity and malty. More malt than fruit was tasted. There was enough hops to add soft fruit and some bitterness. Later some earthiness was tasted and then a bit of spice. This was nice. The after taste was kind of minty and had fruit. Not bad at all.
