I rate this higher than it should be, mostly for nostalgia. Weak and underwhelming on later tastings, this was one of the first beers I really enjoyed in college. Deceptively sessionable despite the alcohol content. I probably shouldn’t have ruined my memories by trying this again...

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear to hazy amber with a soapy off-white head.
Scent is sweet malt,grains....musty.
Taste is malt, grass, bread, slight bitter.
Pretty average....a bit earthy.
Nice bottle, though....very pleasant "thunk" when unplugged.

Wasn’t bad. I could taste the alcohol in it which I never like, but it went down pretty easy. Plus, now I have a swing-top bottle for home brew.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep gold. Bright white, extremely fine head settles quickly to an incomplete cap leaving minimal lacing. Nose is caramel malt, earthy, leafy hop, and a not insubstantial whiff of sulfur. Some mineral comes through with time. Pretty thin in the mouth. Some malt, but not much caramel.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep red in color. Smells of malt and caramel. Tastes just like it smells. Not a bad ale , just nothing super. Caramel stays after the drink goes down

Transfering data from personal beer file. I drank this beer a long time ago. I’ll update this rating if I have the chance to drink it again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Subdued grains and bread in aroma. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a mild pale lager sweetness as well. Not really bad, just not really redeeming in flavor.
