1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloudy amber color. Aroma of red wine vinegar. Thin, almost non-existent head. Thin, sour taste - a bit citrusy.. Overall, just a very bland and truly forgettable beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, fruit, caramel, and bread. Nothing stands out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Empyrean. Pours a hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Toasted malty, light caramel, herbal, pretty boring aroma. A bit tangy, toasty, grainy, grassy, light toffee, boring flavor.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour with very little head. Aroma is sweet malt with an odd floral/funk note. Taste adds a welcome bit of spice but it could use a wee bit more of the smoked barley to make it more interesting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is missing just about everything. Aroma and taste are pedestrian at best. Mouthfeel is thin and the finish has an unpleasant overlay of funk.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head, with hints of lacing, over a hazy dark amber (SRM 9) body......nose is malts, with toffee/caramel dominating....taste is toffee/caramel, finishing with hints of honey becoming dry ending in very light bitterness.....mouth fel light of medium, carbonation low. This is a rather simple beer, but it does meet the style of a Scottish Export 80/. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Semi hazy orange pour with a nice small fluffy white head. Mild aroma and taste of apple/citrus, and not much for bready/malty/caramel at all. More like a weak cider.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with off white head. nose is sour and somewhat flat but with hints of malt. A bit biting and sour on the start moving into a medium bodied salty, and sour blast of malt driven beers. Finishes with just a hint of smoke. Somewhat bland.
