3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a dark brownish/red color with about an inch off-white head that sticked around for a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like caramel and toasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and a bit of of coffee. The taste is similar (but stronger) compared to the aroma, and there’s also a bit of smokiness and saltiness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with moderate carbonation. $2.70 a single.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
tap at Dash In - Pours hazy amber-orange with a lingering off-white head. It smells of mild malt with some caramel. It’s sweet, light bodied, kind of watery, and better as it warms. There’s caramel and more yeast character than one usually finds in a lager. It has a bubbly mouthfeel and overall is an okay brew.

Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, light brown, fully diminishing.
Body is medium to dark brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of sour apple, butter, metal.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
Ugh. Completely sour/infected. Watery, fizzy, metallic, vanishing head, etc...an abomination and utter drain pour.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz can. Dark, hazy brown / red color. Good foamy khaki head. A LOT of chunky sediment floating about. Head fades to totally nothing, leaves no lace. Smoothish moderate pronounced carbonation. Dry finish. Light toasty malt aroma. Bread, some light pepper, seasoning, caramel malts. Light bitter taste, with some metallic. Little chocolate malt. A bit odd, but not bad. Interesting, but leaves me wanting something more out of it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a cloudy, deep brown colored body with a slight red and black hue. Finger-width, frothy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma has a slight cocoa sweetness, a touch of toast, grainy pils malts, and a hint of herbal hops. Flavor is similar. Slightly grainy pils malts with a soft cocoa sweetness throughout. Touch of toast and herbal hopping as this finishes smooth and clean with a light bitterness and a nice cocoa note. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but a decent dark lager. Clean and smooth with a light toast and nice cocoa note.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of cocoa powder, toast, apple and light herbal hops. Appearance is dark brown with light bone head. Flavor is mostly cocoa up front; a bit of toast and herbal hops in the finish, the fruit doesn’t show up. Palate is bubbly and full-bodied. Another very drinkable GC beer, but this could have used an added dimension. Still, I could drink this beer all day.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Brown body with garnet highlights. Fizzy, beige head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, raw grain, grass, canned vegetables. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter, a bitterness that lasts into the finish. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The aroma is better than the flavor which is mostly the taste of roasted malts with a hint of canned corn. Thin, simple beer. Bitter in the finish and not much else. Just OK.
