2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz draft, nothing too great, just an average beer but at 2 bucks a pint nothing to complain about, easy enough to slam down.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This poured a pretty nice red color with an off white head. Aroma was really bland not much there but mainly plain malts. Flavor was also really watery, pretty plain a little roastedness, sweet malts and tiny hints of fading hops not very good.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Baileys in Knoxville. Clear amber orange with a finger of creamy white head. Thin malt aroma, weak dry hoppiness. Light caramel malt with spicy hops and a light bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap. Pours an average amber with an aroma of buttered malt tempered with water. Flavor is watery sour cotton candy. Average mouthfeel. Call the hounds and put this one out of its misery.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Tap) Pours a reddish amber color with a small white head. Sweet caramel aroma. A very sweet tasting beer. Some hops are evident in here, but not enough to balance out the sweetness. Metallic finish. The one up-side was the body, which was better than I expected. It was worth the try, but not something I’ll ever be ordering again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap in Winston-Salem, NC. A nice, average amber. Decently balanced between caramel malts and light hop flavors. Nothing special but better than I was expecting. I’d reccommend if you are in a Fox & Hounds (as other than Abq location I havent seen an overly strong beer list)

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours copper into the glass with a small white head. Virtually no aroma with this beer. Has a pretty nice malt character, but finishes with an odd metallic aftertaste. Not bad for an AB brew

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hey, cool. a red unexpected ale but its really kind of pale yellow from the looks. Free 6 oz sample at the Fox & Hound in North Pgh. Rather interesting, nice mild hop bite. Fun, some unexpected hay. Easy to enjoy, likable and not over the top. Qyuite interesting, glad to have had the chance to taste this. Different yet enjoyable. Good finish which is not too bitter yet bitter enough to let you know it is a little hoppy. Leaning away from pale lager fer sure.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this at Fox and Hound in, i think, Arlington Heights. I’m not sure whether I’m surprised or not that this is an A-B product. I mean, it sucked, but not as bad as most A-B beers. Maybe this is what Bud’s "American Ale" is like? It’s not good. It’s thin, watery, metallic. Just a very plain, boring ale if you ask me. Makes something like fat tire seem amazing.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the Fox and Hound in Philly. Orange tint with virtually no head. Very light aroma of malts, but nothing else. Taste was very bland but had a weird aftertaste - I think cinnamon. Very boring beer.
