3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best before August 2013.
Appearance: The body is clear with a honey color to it, the head is short and dense, leaving a creamy coating on top.
Aroma: Lemon is the first thing that comes to mind, like the Lemon Drop candies. The aroma is light though and hides much of what went into the beer. There’s hints of malt sweetness, but not much else.
Taste: Very simple, light malt sweetness with hints of caramel towards the finish with a light overlying hop profile that reminds me of orange, lemon and slightly spicy.
Palate: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: This is mildly interesting, but when all is said and done this is forgettable. I don’t dislike the beer, but nothing about it draws me to want to buy it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark gold/light orange with a small white head. Aroma is almost entirely citrusy hops, with some banana and skunky saaz coming through. Taste is superficially like a highly hopped pils, but with some odd layers of banana and candy. Light, refreshing mouthfeel. Overall, not at all what I was expecting, but it gets points for originality I guess.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I can’t lie. I was looking to check of another style rate. This allowed me to get a new state as well. Pours darker than a Pils to a color I would describe as very pale amber. Head is white. Aroma is earthy with the lightest touch of citrus. Flavor is a medium light sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Slightly thicker than a standard Pils with slightly less carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Mostly clear golden orange. Foamy white head, but not too much lacing. Smell is slightly musty and biscuity with light noble hops. Taste is sweet with caramel malt and honey notes which are quite pleasant. Medium body; label describes finish as crisp, but not picking this up at all - more of a smooth finish for me. Overall, this is not the sytle that I gravitate to, but fairly drinkable and hides the 7% well.

I really enjoyed this. Nice hop aroma of blend described above. Clean crisp tasting with just a touch of malt sweetness. Finishes like a well hopped pale ale with nobles hops and pilsner malt.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Barak BBOTM. Clear dark golden with white film. Faint floral and honey aroma, a little tropical fruit that I can’t name too. Alcoholic, sweet, honey taste. Syrupy texture for a lager, medium-bodied, alcoholic finish.
