2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally reviewed: 8/25/09. As soon as I opened this beer it exploded with foam all over the counter and floor. This one took awhile to pour because of the foam. Pours a burnt rusty amber. Little lacing. Smells of toasted malts, caramel, and a metallic twang. The mouth is a little thin and wet. I think this beer lost some of the carbonation bite with the foam spillover. Nice balance with some bitter hops on the front, and finishes sweet and creamy. Some slight mineral in the flavor as well. This was good, and I will seek this style out more and more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. The pour is a translucent copper with a huge fluffy beige head. The aroma is apricots, floral hops, dates, and a little caramel. The flavor is sweet up front, get a little bitter, and finishes bitter and a little sour. The palate is medium wieght, sticky and very astringent. Overall, a subtle and complex beer. Not bad.

Amber with white lacing; cereal on nose with a little cocoa; medium-bodied palate with light hops, well-balanced with malt, though a touch on the sweet side. Notes of candied fruit and coco on the palate.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Upon opening the bottle it gushed and exploded all over me right after I got out of the shower. Not cool. Copper pour. Weak aroma. Unpleasant sour taste. Only reason I drank it was I needed to take the edge off being so pissed that this crumby beer spewed all over me and the carpet.

A nice malty flavor fades into a too-thin body, leaving a sweet-and-fizzy combination that is too evocative of cola for my tastes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper into the glass, with a sudsy white head that fully diminishes to trace lace. The nose has some malt and grassiness. The flavors are similar, caramel malt with some doughy notes, and corn attached to a light grassy finish. The palate is smooth with a medium body. This certainly isn’t my favorite French Broad offering, and a very middle-of-the-road "take it or leave it" brew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, nice thick snow white head. Aroma has some spearmint notes but is overridden somewhat by a bit of some phenols. Flavor has the same phenolic sense to it - pick up some nuttiness and a bit of mint through the phenolic funk. Mouthfeel is smooth. Notice that others have commented on their quality control problems - hope they are not all like this - picked up a handful of bombers from them on a trip to Savannah.

Poured a very hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Hoppy citrus aroma with a sweet caramel malt base. The flavor was malty with a little tartness to it. Light-medium bodied.
