3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Stone’s River Total Bev in Murfreesboro. Poured a clear golden copper color with a two finger, bubbly, white head. The aroma was grass and bread. The flavor was very British, with a good malt base, but not very much of a hop presence in the finish. More of an earthy finish. I thought this was good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful copper-gold with a thin, off-white head. Grassy hop signature with heavy hints of malt as well. Heavy malt flavor to go with a woody, hoppy finish. A well-balanced beer, both flavorful and light.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. This one pours out a clear gold producing a rather spare white head that settles quickly, leaving little lace - not a good beginning. Grain based aromas of straw and toast punctuated by some earthiness. Medium body, light carbonation, dry palate. A subdued but pleasant maltiness up front, softly bittered to produce a dry finish. Smooth, drinkable, sessionable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours pale, gold, with a slight haze, small white head. Aroma is grainy, toasted malts. Flavor is a good bit thin. I would have expected a bit more malt. Very light beer, dry finish, hops are cetainly there, definitely more pils than bitter. This must be the beer for everybody else...

Bottle etched 02/03/09 below the label. Poured a clear orange with a fizzy white head that settled quickly. Earthy, grassy aroma with a malt background. The flavor found hops and grain followed by a nice earthiness as it warmed some. Medium body, dry, grain aftertaste.
