3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is not strong but still malty and slightly fruity, just a little appealing. It pours a dark brownish amber with a thick, fluffy white head that leaves some decent lacing. Flavor is malty with a fruity undertone, mainly pear, and just a touch of hops. Texture is fairly smooth, just a little fizzy. I’m not a big fan of lagers, but this is pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Full Sail - you never know what you’re going to get with these guys. This 12-ouncer came from my sister as a birthday gift as part of a mixed pack, and you know, it may be one of the better in the bunch. Excellent clear dark reddish-amber in color with a small light khaki head and good lacing. The aroma has nice caramel malts and mild toast. Not too shabby, I must say. The flavor is also very good. A little grainy with caramel, toast and some earthy hops. Just the right sweet/bitter balance. Rather dry on the mouthfeel with medium body for the style. Actually pretty solid. Color me surprised.

[Bottle] Pours an orange color with a bit of haze to it. Large and lasting cap of foamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, sticky toffee and hints of smoke. Sweet rolls, mild spice, grassy hops and a light amount of smoke in the taste. Full in body and average carbonation levels. Toasted malty finish. I did enjoy this one quite a bit. I’d but this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite dark amber with a moderate, but quickly gone, whitish head that actually leaves a decent bit of lacing. Aroma is light, with some light malt, metallic, and slight spice and hop notes. Taste is slightly sweet malt with just a touch of hops at the finish. Medium body. Nothing special, it seems well made, it’s just a little plain.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from 16 Tons. Surprisingly dark amber pour with a light bit of white head. Smells of grains, some bread, toffee, maybe a little nuttiness. Taste is sweet toffee, a little nutty, some bread and maybe light caramel. Probably my favorite of the LTD series so far, quite a surprisingly solid brew.
