1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Queenholly trades me another 12 oz. bottle, thanks much. I really love the artwork on the label! Sadly this is the second infected bottle I have had out of three different beers. The only reason I am rating it is because it appears that this brewery has bottling issues and really needs to take a look at whatís going on with their line. Gentleman, you need quality control protocol. Clearly something isnít right.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is the lowest rating Iíve given a beer so far. It pours a hazy brownish orange with a thin head. It smells and tastes sour, like bad vinegar. I like vinegar and oil on my salad, or I would have bestowed an even lower score.

bottle - Pours hazy orange with a small, off-white head. Thereís a little spice in the aroma and a whole lot of sourness. Yep, once again itís an infected Four Horsemen beer. Thatís 3 bottles out of 3 for me. Iíll enter ratings for the also infected IPA and Pale Ale another time. They were purchased a couple months ago. Different beers. Different release and purchase times. All infected. Iím disappointed and done. This brewery obviously has a serious bottling problem. Iím not going to waste anymore money until I hear the problem is fixed. Do they try their own bottled beer? Thereís no excuse for this complete absence of quality control. How strange that a brewery from the same area, the now out of business Mishawaka Brewing Co., also had serious infection problems with their bottling. Rather... itís not so strange. A quick google search showed me that Four Horsemen may purchased thire equipment from Mishawaka Brewing. Wow. Well... Iíve had one of their beers on tap. It was fine. At least thereís that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Back Road Fall Fest. Pumpkin, caramel, and pumpkin spices aroma. Light amber with a small off-white head. Tastes like pumpkin pie, pumpkin, caramel/brown sugar, cinnamon/nutmeg/clove, but not too sweet. Light to medium body and carbonation. This pumpkin ale found a perfect balance which kept it from the bitter vegetal flavor that plagues so many pumpkin ales.
