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.

Stupid beer! as i was taking a pic of this brew for the beer sites, my camera slipped, and i dropped the bitch and the screen busted, fuck! .. So this beer will will have to drown my sorrows .. . Pours a dark tan, with amazing head (which actually overflowed all over my side table) .. . aroma is not all that good, dusty and brown .. . Um... is it right to buy a Chrysler? .. . very smooth stuff, taste of light grain, caramel and nuts .. . A pretty nice brew, and quite a well made example of the style .. . Hello. Hello? Anybody there? What’s this, I hear the phone ring, and suddenly there’s nothing. I’m listening and there’s no talking. Hello, mister, who are you? Why would they call if they don’t want to talk to you?

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark red-brown with head and lace. Nose is caramel and toffee, with a slight chocolate overtone. Flavor is rich and substantial, with the toffee carrying through and adding hints of green and black tea. Mouthfeel is clean. Interesting, but not something I’d drink every day.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget Market in Woodland, CA. The aroma on this is a bit metallic, with some floral hints. Not overly pleasant to smell. Transparent amber body with a creamy, off-white head and good lacing left behind. Start with a little metallic flavor, before this becomes really toasted, and biscuity in the middle. Lots of toast, light sweetness, and hints of caramel malt. Finishes with slight floral notes and moderate sweetness. Pretty clean and drinkable. Something I could drink many of and enjoy.
