3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
courtesy of Saarlander, thanks Aaron. poured a dark amber with a short lived off white head. seemed more like an Amber Ale than an APA, malty flavor with very mild hop presence. a decent session style of beer.

Bottle. Poured amber with pale white head. Muxh lacing. Hoppy, fruity aroma with some citrus. Hoppy body, well balanced with the malt. Not much of a finish and an ordinary mouth feel. Still, I would drink this again.

On tap at Lulu’s. Head fizzles off very quickly, but that’s expected. Has just the right level of hoppiness in my opinion, could have a little better finish. Still I would highly recommend it.

transparent bronze, thin head, minimal carbonation. The bitterness comes up front and overmatched the malt. finish is a little acidic. quick finish.

bottle at home ... copper ... fruity hop nose little spice ... toffee malts nicly balanced ... with fruity spicy hops ... disapointing bitter linger but none the less satisfying and a suprise.

Bottle... Poured an amber color with an easy forming head. This beer had too much of an emphasize on malt. More like an amber ale to me. It was ok, but I need more hops.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Light dusty grain aroma, with a bit of old paper and some pear skin. Mild butter. Amber-orange clear with quickly dissipating head. Watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts rather dry with neutral fruit malt sweetness, a bit of light brown sugar, and sort of a malt liquor undertone. Light bitter nutty finish with dry after. Sweet and biscuity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Fairly dark amber color... amost brown with a half finger of head on top. Aromas are of caramel malt, pineapple and some citrus hops. Flavor tends to the malty/caramel side of the specturm that is present in the nose... and while the hops are there, they don’t come through crisply. Very nicely balanced, especially given the malt heavy body.
