3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Needs to be paired with food which I am guessing is boldly spiced like curries as an example. At a crab boil would work too I suppose.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz Bottle. No best by date, but coded 303A14. Bottle was a gusher, poured a pale yellow color with a big over foamy white head. The aroma was reminiscent of Belgian yeasts and not much else. The taste was washed out grains and a touch of allspice. The palate was thin and the carbonation lively. Finishes short and unmemorable. Overall: Meh

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Best by date on the side: 10/21/14. A clear pale gold pour with a smallish off-white head. Old Bay, celery seed, pepper, peaches, apricots, oranges, sweet cereal grains, and honey dominate the appetizing aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. The taste starts with some sweet cereal graininess. A doughy middle. Apricots, tart peaches, tangy oranges, and zesty citrus rinds finish things off. A peppery bite at the end. Lots of Old Bay seasoning and celery seed throughout. Old Bay is wonderfully integrated throughout this beer - always present but never overwhelming.

Very tasty somewhat confusing on the palate. Spicy and smells like a spiced pumpkin ale with a soft very quenching blonde ale body.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Straw hue with creamy white head. Aroma is clove, cardamom, straw, allspice, peaches, peppercorn. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry with a spicy astringent finish. Overall this beer really does pull out all if the flavors of Old Bay spice mix. It reminds me of a crawdad boil. That being said...it’s not overly appealing in a beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Mekong. Pours golden with a half inch of white foam that leaves some lacing. Smells a bit of seafood. Tastes a bit of old bay seasoning on the tongue with a layer of floral hoppiness underneath. The old bay doesn’t really blend with with the beer they created. It’s hard to see why this is so big in Balmer.

it is a beer with an initial aroma of grapefruit hop and it is there well at first in the taste. quickly this beer becomes drenched in bay spice that sprinkle they put on cheaspeake crabs when there were cheapeake crabs. if you like that spice which is un appealing to me at least good.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a bit hazy, yellow, small white head a small spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of Old Bay, hops and malts. Taste is more old bay, some malts and a tad of hops. Crisp and refreshing, definitely different.

12oz bottle from Pinnochio’s. Pours a clear, bright yellow color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is spicy, old bay, celery seed, pepper. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, hay, celery, paprika, old bay, with a light spicy finish. Refreshing. Tastes as advertised: Old Bay. Would like to enjoy this with some shellfish.
