2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Susie G. for flying this in from Florida. Aroma is light malt with a bit of yeast. Decent medium gold color with a light tan head which lasts longer than many. Starts and finishes with malt. Strange hint of chocolate (or carob) in the middle. There is some bitterness at the finish. I’ll take it over most any popular mass produced American lager, and won’t pour it down the drain. For a blonde ale it is fine. I could use less malt and more hop, but there’s room for all in the ale realm.

Remnants from a trade a long time ago with Degarth. Been in the fridge for a while. Pours amber with a white head. Nose is almost vegetable. Flavor’s a bleak malt. It’s... beer. Didn’t expect much from this particular beer, didn’t get much... But hey... it’s beer. :)

Amber color, lightly hazy, thin head, some lacing. Nose is a bit oxidized with malty caramel notes and a nutty earthy hop sweetness. The flavor is a bit unbalanced, some tangy hop bitterness, light sweetness and a thin body. Not very thought provoking but I assume that’s the idea.

A slightly hazy orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet fruity with a slight touch of butter, while the flavor is sweet with notes of toffee, leading to a bitter end.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear amber with a small, off-white head. Some caramel in the nose. Rather light-bodied with a vague, underlying tartness. Vague accents of caramel and a fruity whiff of peaches. Rather subdued bitterness. 250606

Funny that Hannah below mentioned this beer’s lager-like quality, as that was my first thought after smelling and tasting this one. Not a lot of strange stuff going on, pretty simple, and crisp. Good session beer, tasted comparable to a weaker Sam Adams, a tad like Yuengling. Only slight nuance to the flavor I picked up on was a bit of wood. I like it.

On tap 5/27 @ Sloppy Joe’s Bar in Key West: Pours a dark amber color with an off-white head that diminished rather quickly. Aroma and flavor is light on the hops with hints of fruits and malts leaving a tangy bitter finish. Refreshing but just average!

Light golden colour...little tono head. What is there is off white. Aroma is almost nothing. Very light hop aroma. Flavour is weak there is a light maltiness and even a slight vinigar flavour. Very weakly flavoured beer but not offensive.

"Thanks eaglefan for this one. Ho hum a pretty simple beer. Poured a golden color. Aroma was pretty weak could pick much out of it. Flavor was much like Sam Adams, but way watered down. could drink a bunch of these but why waste your liver."
