Bottle shared with the barrios, scottyp, curly. Pours a clear dark golden amber with no real head. Nose is sweet, corn, honey, vanilla. Flavor has a metallic hop, grainy bitterness, and honey. Medium full body. Just like a ESL, what is the difference between these styles anyways?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers] Pours clear light goldish amber with a few fingers of off-white head in my willibecher. Aroma of light caramel, perhaps honey and bread and very light vanilla. Smells a little metallic after head recedes a bit. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, medium-heft, a touch pebbly. Flavor is fairly sweetish and malty, notes of light caramel, bread and vanilla, perhaps honey. Some pine-iness kind of jabs in towards the finish. A bit metallic-sourish perhaps. Can tell there’s alot of malt here because of a relatively thick palate yet the flavor is a bit thin. Another 100 bbl that kind of hints at elements of a style but doesn’t really put it all together. Fairly decent and drinkable just as a beer though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a light copper color with a nice white head that disappeared a little too fast. Left a nice edge lacing. Aroma was malty. Taste was malty with a hint of hops. Nice mouthfeel. Bitterness on the backside was nice, not over powering. A nice warm weather beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful golden orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma was grassy hops, sweet malt, bread, yeast. Sort of a weird amalgamation. Flavor was surprisingly refreshing, sweet, but not cloying, grassy and crisp but not dry. Nicely balanced beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of grassy hops and bread. Flavor is more of the same - grassy hops, very doughy, some malt sweetness. Not as clean as I expected, but very smooth. Nothing to get excited about.
