3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle 7/25/12 (Whole Foods Austin)-Pours a medium ruby red with a small head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with more malt and caramel. This medium bodied brew is not my favorite style but this is well balanced and quite tasty.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark ruby red in color with a thick Bubbly head. Lacing is very poor. Malty aroma. Vanilla and Caramel notes. Toasted peanuts also noticeable in the aroma. Taste like liquid peanut butter. Watery texture with a abrupt finish. Light-bodied with low carbonation. For the price a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours autumn amber with a nice rocky light tan head. The aroma is malty sweet, caramel, nutty, some hops, but very little. Taste is caramel malt, sweet, brown sugary, but drinkable. Body is a little thin, and carbonation is a little light, and that is my biggest problem with the beer, but it makes it sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an amber color with a one finger head that laces out quickly... Aromas are very subtle...malty caramel a touch of watered down scotch and a hint of nuttiness. On the palate is has a similar mouthfeel to a small beer...a balanced easy drinker with a malty round body that brightens up with a hit of noble hop bitterness in the finish. Not bad...a couple weeks past its expiration.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber - lightl hazy dark amber - thick tan head that slowly diminishes to a fine lace - nose is caramel, toasted bread, raisin, yeast, light sourness - low carbonation, medium body - Vienna malt is moderately rich from beginning through the middle, but the malt profile becomes more dry and biscuit-like on the tail end - quite a bit of flowery German hoppiness through the middle and finish - some earthy, dusty character - the finish is a little too bitter, but otherwise this is fairly decent.
