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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a light amber color. Aromas of fruit, hops, and light caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is hoppy but a well balanced mixture of hops and malts, with a nice citrus taste.
