3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hoppy bitterness and sweetness come from this mostly clear pa,e red brew with a white head. Sweet malty chocolate followed by a touch of bitterness then for the after taste chocolate again. Its a light/medium bodied brew with tiny carbonation bubbles. Not a bad brew. Worth a buy

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
14-Sep-11 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 17-Feb-11 for $4.79 at Johnís Marketplace in Portland, OR)
This beer is golden-orange in the glass and more cloudy than hazy, and the off-white head pours to nearly an inch before settling to a thin layer and wide ring. The sweet, malty nose is predominantly grainy and caramely, and while it doesnít smell distinctly hoppy, there is a faint, floral hoppiness in the background. Similarly, the mildly sweet, grainy and somewhat caramely malt is the principle flavor, but there is a mild huskiness in the background that picks up in the finish, detracting from the overall impression. As with the aroma, hop flavor is very light, contributing a modest grassiness and very light bitterness. The beer is moderately carbonated, medium in weight, and slightly astringent in the finish. Nothing special here, and although not offensive, this isnít a beer I have any desire to finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper with a slight reddish tinge and a medium sized long lasting off white head that sticks decently to the glass. Aroma is citrus, fruity, caramel, nutty and lightly spicy hops. Flavour is earthy, citrus, moderately spicy, mild-medium bitterness, toast, caramel and nutty. A little watery and a little ordinary.

This beer is pretty good for the style. I wouldn't pass one up if someone offered it to me, but I wouldn't buy one.

Golden amber, lightly hazed and slim eggshell head. Toasted sourdough and lightly hopped nose. Crisp, lemony hop with faint bitterness. Red apple sweetness. Cool and creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Sweet finish, like roasted red marshmallow. Very clean tea-like linger. Pretty decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice hops, but overall kind of lightweight. Amber in color with decent creamy beige head. Light hop aroma, hops overtake the malt in the taste, citrusy notes. Short, metallic finish.
