3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well…. What should I say?
It’s not a beer with a great deal of depth, intrigue, complexity, or character; the name is the greatest attribute. The beer pours a dark chestnut colored body with a light tan head. The aroma and flavor are roasted with malt, a touch of toffee and toasted wheat bread. Palate is medium… it’s not a bad beer but it’s just lacking any real personality.

Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Head is light beige. Malt, light spices, sweetness in the aroma. Malt and some flowers in the flavour. Vague bitterness in the end. Boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice malty, somewhat roasted aroma, with hints of vanilla. Roastiness is balanced well throughout. A good brown ale, quite enjoyable.

Malty Twizzlers nose, low hops. Dark ruby brown clear, with off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts wth sweet malts, Twizzlers, low acidty. Finish as some bitter aspect, but nothing definitive. Light sweet-sour after.

light malty aroma, reddish brown with a thin long lasting head, very biscuity with hints of brown sugar, a thing body and overall very watery, you could say I’m not a believer

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crystal clear copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Cirrus lacework. Malty, sweet aroma. A bit floral and chocolatey. Maybe a note of vanilla and a hint of port. The well-balanced flavor is lightly chocolately and roasty with a suggestion of buttermilk. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, crisp finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cola color. A bit o’malt in the nose. Some yeast, dough flavors. Pretty much flavorless though. Sort of like colored water.

Clear brown, little head. Slightly nutty. Sugar water? Not much else. Nondescript, no character.

Starts off nice and malty with just enough nut to be interesting. But as the glass went on, it wasn’t good in the least bit.
