3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a nice initial soapy head that fades quickly. Nice aroma of flowers and caramel. Medium to lighter palate, low carbonation. Taste isn’t as good as the aroma - mild caramel, low hop, low carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Pours a beautiful clear amber with a good sized white-tan head. Nose is parts hop and malt. Very creamy on the palate, taste is a little hoppy, some floral notes that somewhat disguise the malt backbone. A bit of sharpness on the finish. A decent beer, not one of their best, but well suited to those who prefer a little extra hop bitterness to their ale.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation transparent dark red brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild smokiness and mild roasted malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a pounder bottle. Nice big brown clear pour with a tad of orange red. Smell is a bit cloying but yes, some hops poke thru to the olfactory. Taste is about the same but there is this mild tartness in there that gives it a bit of a farmy effect,not much tho. Some very mild barely detectable carbonation. Ropey and leathery at times, could be a little more well behaved. Will not appeal to a lager lover. Slight sweet medicinal finish. Sometimes I thought I was sipping an ipa. There, you have it.

bottle - Pours dark amber-brown with an off white head. It has a toasted caramel malt aroma. The flavor is of rich toasted caramel malt with a solid, bitter balance. It’s medium bodied and finishes with some good bitterness.
