5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
What a great ale! Ales are not my favorite beer but this is really good. It is best served on tap but the bottle is good too. I like this with burgers, steaks, grilled or barbequed anything.

Bottle shared at a tasting at our place. Pours hazy rusty amber with white head. Sweet, malty aroma, some caramel and peppermint tea. Faint bitterness, slightly malty and old hops in the mouth. Light body, soft fizz, bitter finish. Tolerable.

12 Oz. Bottle. Amber color, slightly cloudy with a little white head. Aroma of caramel combined with some floral and citrus notes but very weak. In the taste department it has the issue hints of hops covered by sweet flavors notes of caramel are predominant. Quite better than any of the macro stuff but not great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Cloudy rusty deep golden to amber color. Aroma of stale hops, a bit floral and earthy and a bit of malt. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt, a bit of caramel, a bit of fruitiness and a mildly bitter finish with a bit of stale hops. OK, pretty boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy, burnt orange. Aroma of floral hops and some citrus with a little caramel. Taste is light bitter. Citrus, floral hops and some caramel. Medium bodied with a slightly thick texture. Soft carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing really special but quite drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear amber/copper color with moderate eggshell heand and not much lacing. Aroma is soapy with mostly caramel malts and yeast. Taste is neutral with a short finish- could use some hops. Light to medium body. Not difficult to drink but nothing memorable. The bourbon-barrel-aged version of this is much better.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yadda, yadda, yadda. BFD!! Slightly darker yellow than the average piss poor macro. Off beige head is pretty. So lightly hopped it doesn’t matter. Roasted grains are detected, unfortunately those grains are corn and wood. Quick finish is wayyyyy too quick if you ask me. This is not horrible, yet it IS horribly mediocre.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Great American Beer Festival, 2012. Light amber color with a thin palate and mild malt flavor. It drinks easily enough, but the long description, it is very light and doesn’t have much to offer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
14 oz. draft on tap at O’Charleys in Georgetown, KY. Offered thus local ale by the waitress and had to try it. Looks nice - clear brown gold ale with no head and only trace lacing. No aroma really. Taste is deep roasted malts with a non bitter hops finish. Something unique in that aftertaste I can’t quite peg. Very soft palate and rather flat. Warming. A nice compliment with my meal. At least, better fare than the commercial crap.
