clear amber. mostly clean pale and caramel malt nose; slightly metallic but sterile notes at times; mostly sweetened caramel and fusel vanilla touches otherwise. light bodied, as expected, with chewy roundness mid-palate. low hop bitterness but has medium to low malt astringency and harshness. nutty, wet finish. itís okay fresh, but it seems like after only weeks in the bottle it will be done for.

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? Whatís this, I hear the phone ring, and suddenly thereís nothing. Iím listening and thereís no talking. Hello, mister, who are you? Why would they call if they donít want to talk to you?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear brownish-orange body with a small, slightly off-white head that fades somewhat quickly. Aromas of nuts, lightly fruity (esters?), toasty and malt forward. Some cornbread. Lightly hoppy (herbal and grassy). Otherwise pretty clean. A bit sweet up front which slowly fades and finishes malty but dry. Toasty. The initial sweetness is a bit off putting. Crisp, no esters. Some minerality. Pretty clean. Dry, a bit thin, lively bubbles. No astringencies. Pretty decent overall, but nothing spectacular about this beer (for its style or in general).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark amber / medium brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie, toasted bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, orange, herbs), with a light note of toffee.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
Solid! The LTD series in general has seen significant improvements over the past couple years, and while Iíve never had this particular one before, itís probably never been better. Delightful toasty-cookie-toffee-ish malt character with soft citrusy hops. For the modest price, this is a very worthy quaffer.
