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.

3.3 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.

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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in trade from ROBORB. Thanks man. Pours an orange amber color with a light beige head. Smell is slightly dusty and earthy hops. Not malty in the way I would expect and almost is like its spiced or bretty and lightly funky. Taste is lightly hoppy with a biscuity dusty malt to it and some definite but light tartness and lager yeast flavor. Some lingering sweetness in the end. Medium to thin body and normal carbonation. A bit strange.
