0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Terrible beer. I dumped half of the 22-ounce bottle. Between this junk, the not-quite-as-bad-but-still-pretty-bad Messiah Stout, and the borderline-offensive marketing strategy, Schmaltz is one brewer to avoid.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark amber color, not a lot of nose with slight and not wholly unpleasant oxidation. Full bittering spectrum accentuates the lack of malt and body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Unusual and somewhat humorous
marketing strategy behind this beer
but otherwise, this is a nice
American Pale Ale. Firmly bitter
with spicy hop flavors and aroma.
Enough malt to keep it balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 The beer pours a translucent copper color, the head mountainous and a winsome light tan in color as it transmogrifies, the lace formed is a thin sheet. The sweet malt aroma is first to hit the senses, followed by a clean and crisp freshness that makes ales quite appealing to me. Start is sweet and malt rich, the top is medium in its feel to the palate with the finish agreeably acidic and affably hopped, dry lingering aftertaste, another fine drinking beer that’s just plain old easy going down, nuttin’ wrong with that.
