2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured a clear orange color. Head was thick and off white with good retention and lacing. Smelled only of husky grains. There was some subtle sweetness on the tongue. Malt dominated flavor with oatmeal, husky grain, and a touch of caramel. Not bad, but nothing special.

In the 12 oz. can during a NWA flight. Reddish amber in color. Nice fluffy head, but lacing was poor in the crappy airline plastic cup. I think this is essentially a Vienna-style ale with a fairly decent malty backbone.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I've rather liked some of the James Page brews, but this didn't please. Nothing special in appearance--bright, light copper/orange color with a loosely formed and quickly dissipating head. The aroma was enchanting--caramel and effervescent apple. Then the flavor was a mess--some nuttiness and caramel, but also metallic, oddly bitter, and ugly sweet. Although a bit flat, the palate had a nice butter edge to it. Still, this beer couldn't make it past the fact that when it was in my mouth, my tastebuds were in revolt.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber with a soapy beige head. The aroma is another James Page diacetyl-fest ~ at least they’re consistent. There is also some toasted malt and honey like sweetness. Medium / thin body with soft frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with toasted malt and lots of popcorn butter and medicinal malts. The finish is spicy and astringent. I bought three James Page labeled beers - this is the last of the three and also the last James Page beer I will ever have. This is obviously at thumbs way down beer.

Decent bready aroma and flavor, easy to drink, not offensive, more of a simple session beer than anything.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The beer pours to a glowing orange body with a creamy off-white head. Nice visible carbonation and decent lacing. The aroma is malty and has that typical earthy toffee and grain sack qualities. Subtle hops. The flavor has tons of malty grains. Light buttery peanuts. Definitely has that Vienna lager quality to it. Light herbal hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little hoppy, but not much depth, seems thin. Aroma lacks, but has smooth and malty tones throughout. Excellent complex finish with a sweet aftertaste. Warm.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a orange with a white head. Aroma is a bit of grainy malt with no hops present. Flavor is a toasted biscut with some lingering hops. Nothing to go out and find and not really in the horrible catagory but it does have some promise of being a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brown with odd grayish head. Light hops on the nose on thick malt backbone. Taste is good malt with hint of caramel. Floral hops play in the background. Good match with pretzels; brings out the malt.
