Bottle on Amtrak Train 27 - The Empire Builder ( from Binny’s South Loop) - 05/11/12.
Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head that soon clears to the edges.
Caramel malt dominates the nose backed up by hops, citrus and floral tones.
Tastes of caramel malt, tea bags, hops, orange, sugared candy.

Draft pour at Mtc Office. Poured hazy orange gold which settled to clear with nice white head 1/4 inch thick. Scent of floral pleasant. Initial taste of grapefruit/citrus with some mild hops bitterness. Ok drink, but not special.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A 355ml bottle poured into a La Chouffe tulip glass. Bottle says best before 4th March 2015 so not exactly fresh, but tried a few days before best before date.
Smelled of grassy, pine, mango and citrus. Poured a cloudy orange/copper with some floating residue, small head with very little retention. Taste starts off crisp and grassy with very light bitter taste, ends with some caramel and alcohol. Dry with nice carbonation.
Overall feels dry but goes down easy. Also a bit disappointed with the alcohol appearing at the end.

This was the Nitro version. Faint floral hop aroma with pale malt. Medium weight and smooth mouthfeel from the nitro. Golden straw color. Nice malt upfront with some sweetness and a nice bitterness to the finish. Good all-around beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A slightly orange-yellow beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma has caramel, generic citrusfruits, some tropical fruits and wood. Taste has peaches, some wood, medium bitterness or less. Medium bonied, nice carbonation, easy to drink. Even the markings in the neck are disappeared, the wooden notes indicates that the bottle is quite old. Anyway, easy to enjoy and tasteful enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours hazy light orange golden color. Small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is lemon, hops, cream soda, wheat, malt balance. Flavor is malty biscuit, cream, lemon hop bitterness, slight coriander. Slight hop bitterness. Overall very well balanced. But a little too conservative for my taste. This beer is good. But it is not exceptional.
