3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent sized off-white head of fine bubbles. Soft malty aroma with some sweet tarts and light fruit. Color is a dark golden orange. More soft malts and a bit of buttered bread. Lightly fizzy on the palate and is very easy drinking. Hides its alcohol very well. Finishes soft malts and pretty clean. A decent and refreshing summer bock bier.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
nice drinkable beer, nothing outstanding. Pours blonde with some white head. An aroma that would be best described as neutral. Medium plus mouthfeel, a bit of bitterness but more sweetness there. Carbonation is right there. OK, but nothing I would seek out again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours a bright clear copper with a one finger off white head that quickly falls to a ring. The aroma is of bready malt, caramel, and a hint of spice. Taste has sweet caramel malts up front, leading to a yeast and breadiness that has some honey and caramel sweetness. The finish has a mild spicy hop presence to balance things out. Light fizzy carbonation with a very crisp and smooth medium body. Very eady to drink and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz Bottle. Rich, fully whole-grain cereal and malt aroma. Fresh, prickly and alive. Pours a fuming crystal clear deep orangish-gold, with a finger of sandy white. Flavors deteriorate on the palate a bit. The malt develops some skunkiness and yeast products seem somewhat high. Not wet and dead, but not crisp, clean and snappy either, somewhere in the middle. Alcohols show through a bit much in the end. This is decent craft beer, but not a particularly stunning example of the style. P.S. I hate this new rating page.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle [22oz] shared with the gang at ’WaterlooWeekend Oct.’09’ -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a clear deep orange with a spare diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma’s mild and meh, what’s there is quite sweet, with honey, pale malt and oddly enough: peas. Flavour’s also sweet, a bit too much so for me, it’s sugary along with honey and pale malt. Average bodied. I’m sure this is probably well made but I don’t care for it, it’s just not for me.
