3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 Bottle (650ml). Shared with jerc, mds and tupalev, my bottle. Clear deep amber with dimishing white head. Sweeet light aroma of sugary malt, slightly vegetal grain, grassy hops. Taste of sourish grain, cream, stale hops - sourish, weak mouthfeel - ehh. *** re-rated March 3 2009 - what the hell was I thinking? This is a fine beer - nice wood and light juicy malt.

Sampled many times from various Keg. Mostly in Solvang after 103 hard riding miles... and now at the local Red Robin in Palmdale. Dark amber with nice White head, smells a bit of carmel and flowers Flavor very smooth with a great pain killing effect after 16 oz. The body says, "whoa, thats was good, one more will do nicely"

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts and citrusy hops. Flavor was smooth, sweet up-front, caramel, with a slight hoppy bitter finish. Good body, good brew.

Golden color with a thin head. I didn’t notice much in aroma due to a stuffy nose. Flavor is hoppy but balanced.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in Camarillo CA. Brown pour with a decent head. Didn’t last very long though. Aromas were a little macroish. Not a loth there. Flavors were better with a lot of caramelish malts and some spiciness that really set it apart from other common beers. Not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a dark amber-orange with a decent head that quickly shrunk to a thin head that lasted the entire drink. Aroma was hoppy with some caramel coming through. The flavor was caramel malt based with some pine and light floral hops coming through. Very little citrus was detectable in the aroma and flavor. A smooth drink with a little bit of body for the summer or easy drinking moments. Thanks to bfeld for grabbing this one for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz. Pours perfect ruby/brown amber with a diminishing, spare white head. Ghostly little suggestion of malt sugar on the nose, not much else. Medium body, medium carb. Sweet on the attack. Barely bitter (but sticky) finish. Disappointingly lacking in complexity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep copper pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some fruit, corn flakes, hops. The flavor is caramel malty up front, with some bready fruits and hops emerging at mid-palate. Also some tannins appear late.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit overrated if you ask me. Flavor really was a let down. Malts were there along with hops, carbonated palate which really dragged the rating down. No aroma to speak of, no body to speak of, quite ordinary.
