2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
reddish coper color, light white foam on top and medium carbonation, judging by the bubbles rising to the top. smells sweet and bready, uncomplex and with little hops in the aroma. it’s immediately thin on the tongue before i can even taste it, but although the flavor is decent it’s very weak. tastes like a thinned out, sweetened oktoberfest.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper color with a thin head. Smells like the stale air of an old grain silo. Slightly sugary taste with nothing else going on.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good amber color on the pour, tannish head that disspipated quickly. maklty aroma with a trouvch of hops. I had this with a pizza (ok, maybe not a pure taste test), but thought it went well. I could see drinking several of these some night, and give it a good rating. Most drinkable.

A little sweet but kind of heavy. It just has a different sort of flavor. Not nearly as good as others I had of this style but its ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle Pours a clear dark amber with a decent sized cramy light tan head. Thick sturdy lacing. Aromas are apple, vanilla light grains, some brown sugar. Flavor is very bland. Sweet woody malts and very littel hops. Soft carbonation. Slight papery trailer. Not very intersting.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear, pale and magnifying copper in color with a tight-packed, tan, doily looking tan head. Aroma spews forth bubblegum, copper, plastic chew toys, chestnut extract, vanilla and applewood. Flavor is ho hum. A pale lager meets marzen. Thinned caramel and balsawood take on chestnuts from Aldi. Stale peppered grains. Slightly brown sugared corn on the cob. Force carbonation is too much, otherwise, it’s medium-bodied and soliciting demands for a better beer to chase it. Finish is depredated by corn chex and bran flakes. Oh Huber. What are we going to do with you?
