3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap everywhere in Key West. I drank a lot of this at the Green Parrot. Very light and easy to drink. Agreeable. Not a lot of character. Basically, it’s really good. At being average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to the Tampa Trader - MattA!!Slightly hazy deep amber color with an average off white head. Aroma is malty with just the slightest hop aroma. More fruit aroma than hop aroma. The hops exit completely by tasting time and the malt gives way to a watery finish. Refreshing if uneventful light ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber gold with a perceptibly sweet aroma. Slight metallic taste at first, followed with a hint of fruit, lots of hops, bitter malt, and wheat. Well carbonated. Slightly sour and bitter, not a very good balance between flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark red and murky. Musty hop and peach aroma, some malts but with a dominant strawberry and banana flavor. Light lemons as well, maybe some pineapple. Nothing really mixes well, it's a clusterfuck of citrus fruit and it doesn't really do anything. Spicy yeast in the finish. Thanks to Matta for sending this.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light red copperish body with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Flavor has weak malt and light hops characteristics, unfortunately the bland, somewhat sour finish is unsatisfying. Very average beer. I wouldn't bother buying this one again. Does have nice packaging though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Not much to this beer and nothing special about it in my opinion. A small sized off-white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body was transparent and softly carbonated with an orange hue. The nose was malty, light hops and sweet. The flavor was sweet, somewhat tart and tangy and light hops. The mouthfeel was smooth and tingly. This was a light-medium bodied beer with very sparse lacing on the sides of my glass.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled ale poured a medium sized head of mostly diminishing white colored fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown colored body and a fair lace. The aroma reminded me of a campfire and burnt wood rather smokey. The mouthfeel was tingly and smooth from start to finish while the flavor was metallic roasted caramel and malty.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
a below average blonde ale. but then again i had it at a bowling alley, so i'm not suprised. Rather thin and tastless, but better then the normal swill.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this on tap last night, I wanted something I had never had and was totally skeptical about the quality of this beer. I was presently surprised though, much better than I had anticipated.
Poured a deep mahogany body with a creamy tan head. The aroma and flavor were buttery & nutty, quite malty and toasty; a small dose of hops help to round of the finish. The palate was surprisingly creamy, medium body; Man, this could have been far worse than it was.
