Bottle from pdee Thanks!
Pours a lush brown/amber tea, with a frothy head and clinging lace, like sea foam. Aroma is a sour peach with blunt hops. Flavor is spicy and bitter, with a bit of pepper and cinammon. Interesting. Palate is suitable. Not a bad beer; not bad at all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red. Nose lightly hoppy, some caramel and brown sugar. Bit soapy. Flavor is toasty caramel and mildly bready. Fruitiness is a bit odd, lemon and something like overripe orange, a bit off. Still, nice maltiness, and decently backed by hops. Good palate as well. Reminded me a bit of a poor man’s Boulevard Bob’s 47.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a clear, dark amber color with a small, mostly diminishing head with a tiny bit of lacing, Aromas include a beautiful, big fat, sweet blast of roasted malt, brown sugar, and sweet cookie. The flavor starts moderately sweet and ends in a long, lightly sweet finish. The palate is thin-to-medium with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a recent arrival in Iowa City. A darker red body that is almost amber. The aroma is full of apples and some earthy raw potatoes. The taste is light with some tofee and a little bit of celery. There is also a spicy finish of clove. This is a decent lager, but a little to much vegetables in this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber color with a taller light tan head. Toast and grains aromas, akin to a slice of toasted whole grain bread. Hints of mild marmalade and DMS (seems to be part of the grain thing). Dry toasted malt reaches the tongue along with some sorghum and other odd sweetnesses. Some mild earthy peat seems to find its way in the mix. Seems like it would go well with a sausage on a whole wheat bun. But than again, there are a lot of other brews that would fit that bill also. Lots of sweet toasted malt in the linger.

Aroma is a lot like a Lindemans, very fruity with caramel and dough. Body is amber/brown, with a lasting cream head. Taste is fruity which fades to a nice malt backbone. A tasty brew.

Copper brown color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is malt, caramel, cookies and cinnamon. Medium bodied vienna style lager. Malts are fruity and sweet, lots of cookie and cinnamon flavors. Very sweet. Touch of hop bitterness. Interesting beer, not much there but sweetness and spice. Thanks Sean.. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
