3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at some crappy fake sports bar in WashPA. God, how many of these places do we have to endure? Soulless. Full of fake masculinity and cheap fast food. Now, we add to that mix a fake commitment to craft beer. Dozens of TVs blaring the Penguins game, feels like loneliness. Anyway, to the beer:
pours a deep copper color with a medium white head. A sweet clean caramel flavor, toast, some light fruit. Pretty good. Thankfully, because apparently the normal glass size is 32 ounces!

On tap at Kildare’s. Amber with a thin white head that retains. Aroma is toasted malt. Flavor is the same with some slight toasty bitterness. Very nice.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Mild toffee malt aroma. Amber with large light tan head. Sweet toffee malt initially but switches to a buttery ginseng/gentian root bitter finish. Not a fan of this combination of flavors. (Best by 4/24/13).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with sticky, foamy white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of roasted malt with some hop notes. Good on the palate. Not bad.

12 oz bottle into to pint glass. Awesome red/amber color with a 1.5 finger head that disappeared after a few sips. Lacing is not very evident. A very drinkable beer, fruity, hoppy taste comes out with a lively amount of carbonation aiding to a nice mouthfeel.

2/25/13. 12oz bottle thanks to Tibeerious and aobecksy! Thanks for the tick! Clear amber red pour with a light khaki head that fades to a ring but sticks. Mild lacing. Light caramel with a hint of chocolate and bread in the aroma. Mild malty flavor as well with caramel and bread, a hint of chocolate, and just a dose of hop character to dry the finish a touch. Refreshing and tasty.

12 oz bottle. Amber malt, a bit of dirty bitterness. Not a bad little beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle, 2/17/13
Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, some caramel, toffee, bread, and a little bit of fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish color with a small off-white head that leaves some light lace
Flavor: The taste, much like the nose, is rather sweet and malty, with minimal bitterness
Palate: It has a light-medium body, some fizzy carbonation, and a bit of stickiness on the mouth
I thought this was a decent example of the style, but it so sweet and so fizzy that the drinkability takes a big hit. There are some nice components here, but I could have used a bit more balance and a bit less carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours red with a persistent cream head. Toasty malt with a pleasant hop bite. A bit bready, good and hearty for a cold day. Not my favorite style, but a good representation.
