3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured an amber color with a smaller tan head that went rather quick. Left a little bit of lacing on the glass. Weaker caramel, nuts and wood aroma. Very thin and watery body. Flavor was caramel and malts. Very weak mouthfeel. Not a lot to this beer. Very disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice amber color with a light head. Aroma is faint and slightly sweet. Flavor is solid, medium-bodied....Nothing special at all, but a completely drinkable, decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel with a faint hoppy pine background. I’m not sure why the score is so low on this one, but this ale seems really well balnced flavor-wise. Initially you taste mellow resinous pine that transforms into a very agreeable malty bitterness for the finish. The caramel sweetness remains throughout. This would make a great sessionable amber ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild aroma. The beer has a scratchy feel to it. Orange malt flavor with some perky hops. Flavors ok but not blended smoothly.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Finger of head with a reddish hue. Clear, copper colored body.
Smell is faintly lemon, faintly.
Plain Jane taste. Almost flavorless at first, mild bitterness to end it.
Crisp and clean texture, medium body with moderate carbonation.
Not bad, but not good or interesting.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of foamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent copper brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty and lagerish. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor was softly acidic. Not one that I would buy again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle -pours caramel with thin off white head and thin lacing. Nose is grass and cereal. Flavor adds metallic spinach as in iron. Off putting aftertaste of metal. Thin to medium body with light stickiness. Light for the style but not horrible as a beer. Light to moderate bitterness with light sweetness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, pecan wood colored beer, twistoff longneck, cheesy label, thin light lacy head. Autolytic, slightly tangy malt aroma. Edgy, sour, woody, not sweet, mineral water flavors, a bit toasty and perhaps very, very lightly diacetyl. Medium body, prickly carbonation. Toasty malt aftertaste with some woody bitterness. Nothing to write home about, better as it warms a bit. ABC, Bull Run.
