2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I might call this an ESB or something, maybe an American amber. It is really pretty red w/ a huge, long lasting head and tons of lace--very impressive appearance-wise but the nice visuals are unfortunately wasted on a less than steller brew. This is mild and sort of malty w/ a firm earthy bitterness that is altogether ruined by a strong metallic off-note. At least it is not too sweet so it is kinda drinkable despite this. Still, not exactly the most pleasant beverage on earth.

Bottle. Pours brown with a small off-white head. Smells of leaves, copper, caramel, and sugar. Taste is caramel malts, crayons, and wheat. Bitter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet, malty and creamy flavor and aroma. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Slightly bitter makes me like it anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a warm caramel with a light clove grit. As it settles, apple and pear - like fruity aromas appear with spicy nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as a herbal touch. The beer is a clear red amber with a fuzzy, off white head that retains a dirty surface and moderate ring. The taste is a medium, balanced bittersweet. It’s oily with a flattish foam carbonation and amedium body that’s flavor profile includes notes of caramel, nuts, and spice. It finishes spicy and roasty with an aftertaste that’s light and clean.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grassy aroma, tastes of biscuit, mild honey sweetness, and a slight bit of grassy hops, with a mild hop bitterness at the end. Drinkable but nothing to write home about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild malt and cherries nose. Tea colored, medium yellow head. Malt then hay. Dry, mild. Light body, easy carbonation. Either I’m finally developing an appreciation for this style, or this wasn’t half bad.
