3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Total Wine-McLean, 2/13/13
Aroma: The nose is clean and malty, some nutty notes, a bit of fruit, toasted malts, and caramel
Appearance: It pours a reddish color with a small beige head and some medium lacework
Flavor: The flavor is mid-sweet, pretty much all malts with just a tiny hint of hop bitterness to it
Palate: The body is medium, it drinks cleanly enough, with average carbonation, and a sticky finish
Rater #22! This is a solid beer, but not a standout for me. It is malty, drinkable, and fine, but it just doesn’t have anything that would make you really rush out and try one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a bright ruby tint and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, nuts, earth, very light spices and a hint of english or german hops. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic note along with some nuttiness, a hint of the hops, a little alcohol sharpness and a definite bitter earth flavour. Aftertaste shows the slow alcohol burn and a larger metallic and pungent finish, with a hint of sugars and a little spice kick. Overall, a pretty pungent beer for the style with the alcohol showing through and a bit too much bitterness for me. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Grateful Red in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 02-February-2013 for US$2.47 sampled at home in Washington on 05-February-2013.

Slightly cloudy, deep amber appearance with an average size off white head and good lacing. Subtle aroma of caramel malts and soft fruit. Flavors of floral, spicy hops with a moderately sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Out of the bottle poured a hazy dark brown color, malty and sort of Piney aroma. Taste is nice lots of hops, with a citrus touch/aftertaste...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the bottle, pours a hazy brownish red with a thin white head and nice lacing. Thick earthy malty aroma. Taste wants to be thick but feels more carbonated than it actually is. Earthy malty, brown sugar and molasses, an attempt at sweetness that fails to really catch on, ending with a mild bitterness of earthy hops. Almost a refreshing beer while ice cold. I give this an "ok".

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft offering..coppery color..aroma and nose are faint to say the least..fairly non deScript.filmy head stays a bit..spicy finish but not in a good sense..a bit much..hard to believe that a really solid brewery like evo puts out some really good beers and a few duds..not very impressed with their sprung or this at all...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan body. Thin, oily non head. Toasty malt with some balancing orange hop aroma. Captures the style rather respectfully. Medium bodied, very easy drinking for the ABV. True to style, enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The pour is copper with a thin tan head that leaves some nice lacing. The aroma is dominated by hops. The flavor is pretty bland to start and then finishes with a ton of dry hops. This beer is not well balanced at all and not all that approachable. The "toasty malt profile" is nowhere to be found. Not very good!
