3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pretty golden amber with a thick coat of foam on top and lots of cascading bubbles. Nose is of malt with some hops apparent as well. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is a little disappointing- not bad, but just not that flavorful. Malt and hops are nicely balanced but all rather muted. An adequate beer but nothing special. Pairs well with ham and cheese.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12/23/12. 12oz bottle from Warehouse in Albany, GA. Clear light red/amber pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring but laces surprisingly well. Mute aroma with a touch of caramel and chocolate and not much else. Light flavor, again with a touch of caramel and chocolate, and a certain mustiness. "Strongly hoppy flavor" ...hahahahaha.

Bottle. Poured deep amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were mildly malty, some doughy bread, caramel, hardly any hop flavor bitterness. Nice but forgettable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Buttery toffee malt aroma. Amber with small head. Mildly sweet toffee malt and bitter herbal hops flavor. Not horrible but not a fan of the flavor combination.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought this at VG’s market in Brighton Michigan. Nice copper color when pouring, although not much head. Aroma of malts and a faint caramel, but hardly any hops. Malty and caramel flavor, still no hops. Being at 5.2%, it seems pretty light both on palate and taste.
At 99 cents a bottle, a few of these could easily go well with an outdoor, late afternoon summer BBQ.

Aroma pretty faint. Surprising hop notes that nicely balances the sweet malts. This beer had a refreshing quality to it that I enjoyed.
