2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Chelsea piers bowling. Pours clean amber. Nose is mostly nothing but I guess some malt and certainly not bad. Tastes of malt, caramel, and toast with light hop bitterness. Pretty bland.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark copper toward brown with a finger of tan head. Nose is caramel malt, brown sugary, with notes of toffee and spice. Tastes caramel malty, a bit like Yuengling, with a lot of malt, mild hops, and mile toffee.

12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light malts, a little caramel and light floral hops. Flavor pretty bland and light on everything. Average to light texture. Not the best beer, but not awful.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear light copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) white foamy head that reduced to a thin cap with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was extremely mild of a light grain malt, grassy hops and an earthy yeast with a light note of caramel and maybe an adjunct.
The taste was lightly malty sweet with a faint hint of caramel at first, becoming mildly bitter and a tad hoppy towards the end. The flavor was short lived with just a light bitterness left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery, dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was an ultra light tasting brew in every aspect. It reminds me of the light beers on the market today, but with just a little more flavor... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Bottled. Amber red pour. Some light caramel. Light hops. Some fruits. Pretty unmemorable but not awful.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Nose lightly dusty and rich in dough malt with sticky hints at berry and higher alcohol. Like that caramel vibe, has some nice hops. Pours a gradient amber with a rocky, dense eggshell head. Taste has fresh hops, thick caramel and nice woodsy feel, but there’s a mildly grainy curtness about it (Sammy has something similar) and some unfortunate streaks of paper. Still, faint dough and earth/choco are nice, and for its flaws this is still nice to drink. Medium-fullish body, not flat but best described as ’smooth’.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice hop aroma, some caramel sweetness. Balanced pretty nicely. I always find ambers to be pretty boring but thought this one was fairly well done with some variation. Fairly light bodied but nice light malt and hop addition. Beer became lest interesting as the beer progressed.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is way too sweet, grainy, and husky with an almost sawdust like note that’s especially problematic. The flavor is just as poor as the aroma is. Brown sugar like sweetness over a dusty and husky blandly malty base. Missing any impact from the hops completely, not even sure there are any in here. Slightly sticky and clingy finish with fizzy carbonation. Even among what is typically a bland and uninspiring style, this is especially poor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Pours clear amber into a shaker. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Mild bread and sour caramel aromas. Soft with sour bread and nuts. Lasting nasty finish.
