3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 16 oz can. Dark orange with a reddish tint and a filmy off-white head. Aroma has a hint of too much crystal malt, some cake mix maltiness. Flavor is full bodied with some caramel sweetness, a bit of pomegranate fruitiness, some cherry juice, a touch of bitter citrus and just a touch of homebrew crystal malt funkiness. Mouthfeel has a creamy thickness to it. Needs just a touch of refinement - but not bad to get your drink on.

16oz tall boy can from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a swampy reddish brown body with a smaller beige tight foamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, toffee, molasses, grains and some sugary raisin. Medium to fuller body, tight bubbly carbonation, chalky, harsh finish. Flavor is dry grains, toffee, molasses, dry caramel, some fruit rinds, sugar. Not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Murky red/amber body with no head.
Aroma: Sweet caramel and bubblegum, very weak strength.
Taste: Sweet caramel with a mild bitterness of citrus.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Easy to drink, but everything is muted about this. It’s as if you took a Lagunitas American strong ale and muted it all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can brought down by friends from Chicago - thanks, Mike and Rachel! Pours a clear copper orange with a beige head. The hops are more aggressive in this than I anticipated; florals, citrus rind, and grass, to go with caramel, resin, brown sugar, and some rye. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Drinks like a hoppy imperial amber.

16oz can from Crossroads. Pours a murky brownish amber color with a finger of foamy tan head. Aroma of strong caramel malt, some rye spice, rotted grapefruit, and earth. Taste of caramel malt, earthy hops, rotted citrus, spice, and booze. Aroma and taste are very barlywineish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice brew, my first from this brewery. Pours a reddish amber with a thin head. Caramel and sweet malt in the aroma. The flavor has quite a bit of sweet malt up front but is balanced with a nice hop bitterness. The finish is dry with no alcohol to be found. A deceptive beer, beware the 8% ABV.
