3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz botltle from Giant Eagle in Shadyside. Nothing remarkable here with a mild taste and a flat finish. Could have been much better if only a bit more character had been involved.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very mild amber. Pours a dark burgeoning red coliur with a soapy off white head. The nose is overly grainy with cereal and toasted bread malts with an bit of toffee. Hints of citrus hops and nutty malt notes mid palate. A bit underwhelming overall

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy amber color with compact head. A nice ale with a good caramel malt flavor, dryish, strong bitterness; not very emotional, but clean, enjoyable and well brewed as usual by Elysian.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a slight orange tint to it and a smallish white head on it. Nose is pretty malt forward, though nondescript, and only a little bread coming through. Actually ends up being a tad earthy. Taste is a tad bitter, but not very interesting. Not all that great, to me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light amber color. Floral hop aroma. Taste is bitter and dry. Not a red ale for an adjunct drinker, this one has some body and bold flavor. An intro Beer by this brewery that could easily be overlooked. Solid!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear coppery amber, with a short beige head and minimal lacing. Aroma: slightly sweet, with roasted barley, granola bars, and some citrus/floral hops. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with the flavors trending more to sweet and toasty. Finish: clean, slightly dry, with a nice, delicate floral bitterness on the back side. Notes: Seemed more like an amber or red ale. Quite enjoyed it.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
HQT night. Bottle. This beer just didn’t work for me. Perhaps I had a bad bottle, this I had a sour milk scent when I poured. It came out a dark cloudy red. I’ll need to try a draft, and see if I can bump this score up a bit.
