3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
08.13.05 Deep copper-red, no head. Malty and rich. Nice bitterness stems from a dirty earth across the body but changes to a sharper and drier bitter at finish. Earth and nuttiness all around. Sweet grain pervades and lingers on the palate in a battle with the driness. Bonus points because it’s one of the tastier examples I’ve had of the style, but minus points because it’s not even as earthy or peaty as some of their other, less appropriate beers.

Deep amber appearance was quite attractive. However this beer had no real aroma. The taste showed some hops but not much else. Unfortunately this tribute beer is a very good concept that sadly left me unimpressed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of caramel/cereal malts going on, some acidity in the middle, medium dark red color, slightly citric hops in finish. Dustiness. Low diacetyl. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent beer and named after a good man and for a good cause. Every pint sold gives 50 cents to a Burn Camp. That Beeranthropy at its finest. As for the beer, rusty brown color. Easy to drink. A heart example of the style.

Kind of a ruddy brown. Normally I’m all about brews that light a cowboy’s fire but this one puts them out and thats ok. Slake your thirst on this brew and put out that fire.

Light brown in color, this brew had an overtone of peach in the aroma. About a half inch of creamy white head topped the ruby brown body. Medium bodied with a slightly sweet finish.
