3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Hazy pinkish orange appearance with a pillowy white head. Dry, dull fruity, a bit yeasty, a bit spicy aroma. A bit tart, lightly fruity, crisp, light grape, earthy bitter hoppy flavor. Drinkable but a little strange. Update: tasted on tap at Empyrean on 9/29 and seemed to have a mild diacetyl note.

Grainy and slightly bready in aroma. The flavor is balanced by hops and malts, a slight stickiness from the malts and a decent hop bite into the finish. Not quite sure what style of ale this is, but it cleans up pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Tap] Part of a sampler at Lazlo’s in Omaha. Pours an amber color without much head. Aroma of dusty grains, mild grass and sweet toffee. Malty taste includes mainly caramel and a kick of mild hops. A bit thin around the edges. Low carbonation. Still one of the better beers in the sampler though.

Went back for a second on this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the 2006 Nebraska Craft Brewer’s Festival. Pours a cinnamon color with amedium off-white head. Mild fruit flavor seems a slight bit soapy, but not much. Tastes exactly like a steam beer. In fact, this tastes closer to Anchor than any other attempt I have tried. Mild buttery tonge feel. Fruity berries amid caramel toastiness. Good lacing remains.

On tap at the Crescent Moon Alehouse. Copper in color with a rapidly disappearing head. Nice hop aroma. First sip reveals a strong bittering hop content that greatly satisfies. Malt content is good, but not generous. Still, the great hop flavor makes this very drinkable.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Crescent Moon, this is a nice dark bronze beer with a substantial head. Astringent bitterness and a metallic bite. Pleasant hop character without the full fruity burst of an IPA ... Good brew.
