2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a see through dark gold with a very nice tall, white head. The aroma has hints of peppers, grass, sourdough, and corn with a decent hop presence. The palate is medium with low carbonation. Clawhammer is pretty light with subtle hints at dough and leaves, though I suppose it’s peppery and spicy enough to hold my interest. It’s an easy quaff and very good for a style I don’t usually like. My only real complaint is the light corn flavors that become apparent towards the end of the glass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is oddly hoppy with some lemons and pine. Ofest my arse. If I rated on style Id tan this but I don’t so Ill say this is a pretty good session apa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear amber/orange pour with minimal head. Aroma is fruity; hints of orange, sweet corn, minor other citrus notes as well as caramel and toffee. Smells inviting and refreshing... and the taste confirms it. Light-bodied with minor hop notes, sweet malt and a touch of spice. I think it’s pretty true to what I think of the style, and I could drink this all autumn long. Another good brew from this high-quality Asheville brewery.

2008 Knoxville Brewers’ Jam. Pours orange with white head. The aroma is grain, fruit, and distinct Munich malt. The flavor is toasty with some leaves and light caramel, and a little bit of hay in the finish. Not too shabby.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle, from Cary Whole Foods. Good aroma, Sweet, minor sour streak. Corn, wet autumn leaves, caramel/toffee, grass. Clean brownish orange, small head, faded quickly to nothing. Bitter sweet flavor, like aroma, minus the corn. Lite body, thin smooth mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish. Seems to hit all the classic points of it’s style. Might of low balled this as I enjoyed it a lot while watching the Red Sox beat the Angels. Maybe that had something to do with it.
