2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet showing a hazed, amber color, with a quickly diminishing layer of off white head foam, but decent persistence to the doily-like lacing. The nose was sweet grain & caramel, with some metallic scent. The hop bitterness in the taste was lingering, earthy, rind-like, and somewhat over done. Medicinal hints followed, with some malty sweetness, and noticeable alcohol. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, but a finishing aftertaste that was a continuation of the bitterness, rind-like astringency, with a little sweetness & booziness, and not all that favorable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz longneck bottle. Unusual but not unpleasant aroma. Pours a cloudy amber with very little head. Not a beer I would buy again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a thin finger of foamy, white head. Moderate lacing. Nose is grain and a little funky yeast. Taste is mild bitterness, sort of grapefruity. High ABV comes through in medicinal booziness. Fuller than I expected in mouthfeel. Not bad brew, but not particularly good.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Trader Joe’s in Tally. Gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is medicinal, grain, caramel. Tastes are a vast improvement on the aroma, though not saying much - sweet malt, overripe fruit, grainy, tea vibe. Kind of a mess.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Hazy medium orange pour, soft white head that sticks around a while Aroma leans to the sweet side with some scuppernong grapes, a light touch of dates. Flavor is just a tad muddled with some light molasses notes, a touch of orange marmalade, some coriander spice. Not sure where this one is going. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it.
