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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
My second Weinhard in a row, my second drain pour in a row. I can’t believe this crap comes out of Full Sail’s brewery! It has a strong medicinal and oil feel and taste. Bad. Stay away.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a huge soapy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing.The aroma was sweet and tangy toasted caramel and dark fruits. The flavor was sweet, tangy and malty with notes of caramel, dark fruits and honey. Medium length tangy dark fruit and caramel finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Nice caramel aroma with notes of earthiness and grassy hops, but predominantly caramel. Caramel and bread flavors with some small hints of hops. This beer is pretty basic - caramel malts. Not as bad as the Woodlands Pass IPA, but not that great either.
