3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had this beer maybe a couple weeks ago. I don’t remember too much about the flavor. I do remember I didn’t think it was anything special. It didn’t taste as fresh and clean as their XPA, which I like.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very hazy copper pour, with a soapy, lasting head - interesting and complex aroma of grapefruit, bread, brown sugar, floral notes, hay, a lot of earthy, musty character - the fact that they left this unfiltered has given the beer a lot of earthy complexities in the flavor - smooth, creamy mouthfeel, with a medium body - strong, leafy, herbal hops - a little bit of tartness - bready malts, spices, a bit of fruity character, notes of rye, toasted grains, even hints of smoke at times - grapefruit pulp and a touch of citric acidity arrive late - an interesting and tasty beer - this is no premium lager, though - it is definitely a kellerbier. (Note to the brewer, though: quit it with the pretentious names for your beers)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at TDR Ex.: Aroma of fruit, floral hops, and light malts. If you read the 4 existing reviews, people thought there was a wide variety in the aroma. Interesting. Poured copper with a hint of amber in color and a small white head that disappeared instantly. Hazy. Not sparkling. Small lacing. Flavor of yeast, spices, bubblegum, and a hint of chocolate malts. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Yeasty, fruity, lightly malty, dry finish. An ok lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy deep copper with big 3-finger off-white head. Nose is female gymnast feet, hops, assy funk, caramel malt, florals, spicy peppery. Tastes feety hoppy, funky, with earthy mushroomy notes, spicy florals, fruit, and malt. Palate is rich and the complexity is great. This is a great beer, although it comes across as a Simcoey IPA much more than a malt liquor. I’ll definitely be picking more of this up.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A new brew from High & Mighty, contract brewed at Paper City. 22oz bomber. Pours a medium to dark-ish amber color with a pretty nice pillowy off-white inch of head. Aromas of crisp lager yeast, some citrus and floral hops, and some toasted biscuit notes. Flavor starts with a fair amount of citrus bitterness and notes of lemon and grapefruit. Crisp, smooth toasted malt notes in there as well, but very much take the backseat to the hop profile. On the mellow side, not overdone on the flavors. Very smooth and crisp on the palate, with a clean finish. Decent brew, but nothing especially impressive.
