3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad frosty. I could enjoy many of these bad boys from the midwest.
Amber pour, doughy aroma, woody, nutty taste. Nice

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured dark gold with an off-white head. Aroma of malt. Medium body, mildly malty falvor with a bit of hops in the finish. A weak, lackluster brew that I’ll not try again.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus and I’m getting a graininess as well. Tastes of pretty much the same if not weaker than the weak aromas. Body was thin and watery.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
this american-amber is for me, exactly what I’d want and expect in the style, a simple, straight-forward, med-light bodied carmel-malt brew, easy to drink, neither too malty, too hoppy, too strong, perfect for summer heat and not too overbearing for simple american food pairings (pizza, burgers, fries, etc). this is what new belgium’s fat tire should have tasted like.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
True amber beer sampled at the St Louis Microfest, 5/13/06: Caramel malt all the way. Tart and sharp. Almost an oatmeal cookie aspect. In the end, I consider this an average amber beer at best.

On tap at the 2006 Best of the Midwest Brewers’ Festival. Yuck. Very poor head retention. weak body. Fizzy. Thin palate. Finishes with a whimper. This would have been the worst beer at the festival had Granite City not shown up.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle into tulip glass. Purchased at some grocery store in Brookfield, WI sometime in 2004. Not that great. Aroma is skunky and mildly biting. Fluffy small whitish head fully diminishes over a clear orange amber beer with visible carbonation. Tastes like a sweaty sock soaked in chardonnay; melony, and vaguely ass-ish. Hops like you’d taste in MGD. A little bit of bittering hops kick in on the finish, but they’re weak. No need to seek this one out.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Malty, caramelish nose. Light, somewhat watery, body with some caramel with a touch of nuts and a very discreet sweetness. Lightly dry finish. Tasted at the Oklahoma Beer tasting March 06 hosted by mjames and lilannie. 250306

Light yellow appearance. Aroma is urine lemongrass and popcorn, almost chardonay like. Watery mouth has canned vegtables and soursweetness flavour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from bottle, a gift from Dansting. This Kansas ale pours clear, light copper-brown with a creamy white head and nice lacing. It’s an attractive pour. Its aroma is clean and malty. The flavor has missed the mark. There is a subtle sourness that is present that I’m not too fond of, but apart from that, it’s clean and malty with just a hint of hop spice. Light to medium-bodied and well-carbonated. The sourness lingers in the finish. An all-right beer.
