2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
had this in gilbert...
that’s a damn fine looking beer in its custom glass... rich amber with a soft off white head which leaves a ladder of lace behind.
a smell of iron is a bit detracting from the fact that it really doesn’t smell like much else...some nuts and caramel perhaps.
there is a defined iron flavor... along with strawberries, faint chocolate, cinnamon-ish spice, caramel and something minty/numbing. it’s dirty and vegetal yet not earthy with a watered down feeling.... almost like they brewed this with rewashed grain.
thin body is lacking some pep from carbonation so it feels dead on the tongue... 4/4/4/2/10/2.4

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hints of caramel when swirled. Poured a dark amber/copper with a light tan head. Taste was of light hops, yet a little sweet with a light finish. Lighter on the palate. Overall, a decent amber, yet forgettable.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Draft at Bailey’s in Knoxville, TN. Nose of sweet malt and light vinegar. Clear amber with a lasting creamy foam and nice lacing. Taste is caramel, light marshmallow and earthy funk. Creamy smooth, light-medium body is easily quaffed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Fox and Hound in Charlotte, NC. Dark Amber color, decent head and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee and malt. Malt flavor with a little sweetness and faint hops. Okay brew but I think the best part of the whole deal was the nice glass they brought it in. I would love to have one for my bar collection.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Fox and Hound in Lewisville, TX. The color is amberish with a decent head for a kegged beer. The smell is malts, caramel, sort of sweet, and basic. The taste is was dry biscuits, malts, caramel, and sort of boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Couldn’t see it too well in the dark bar lighting. It looks like a fairly dark amber from what I could tell. Nice head that went down kinda quick. Lots of lacing. Smelle kinda plain. Mostly malt.
Tastes pretty decent. When I went to look it up, I was surprised that it was AB. The aftertaste does taste a bit like a BMC, but up front it has a surprising bite. More full bodied than most anything from AB.
D-Not bad. I think that the adjunct aftertaste might start to pile up after awhile.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap. Amber rust color. Dusty smell. Some malts come through but it’s mostly adjuncts. Taste is caramel sweet with a corny backbone. Finish is crisp. Too macro in quality.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. At a bar in KC. Poured a light amber color with no real head. Malts in the aroma along with bread and yeast. No real flavor. I knew this was an AB product as soon as I took a drink. Very thin and very very watery. Pour beer.
