3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Dark yellow beer. Really strong sweetness with a hint of high alcohol? Damn near a Belgian-type ale. I’d think that most people would run from it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light gold with slight haze. Not much head. Slightly hoppy aroma. Shockingly malty body (I’m guessing Maris Otter) and light, crisp hops. Keeps it from being boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at the Resurection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Medium golden appearance with a decent, white thick head, good lacing. Has a slighlty buttery aroma with some vegetable accents. Same buttery essence carries over to the flavor with a bit of bit of biscuity, malty sweetness. Mouthfeel was decent. Probably brewed for the masses. A decent, but not stellar effort.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Draft: Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage, AK) This is one light flavored beer, perfect for the tourist crowd that packs the Glacier Brewhouse; Slightly sweet, with little malt or hops, it tastes and smells like a cheap American light beer; Light body, of course, and smooth on the palate … like water; Hardly any nose, and nothing descriptive; Pale yellow color; Whitish head is mostly just large bubbles and fades fast, but leaves a solid coating of lacing on the glass, which is the only positive thing I can say about this beer

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light golden and extremely clear with a thinnish head. Crisp carbonation and a pale mouthfeel. Light malts with hints of grains and cereal. Gentle hop aromas, mostly herbs. Very mild bitterness; slightly drying. OK beer for a bland style.
