2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle, via Styles. Pours a copper colored body with a few small chunks of sediment floating around. Head was small, beige, and fleeting in duration. Aroma is of sweet toasted malt with a light floral hoppiness. Flavor is fairly unexciting, some general fruitiness with sweet caramel and toasted malts. Very lightly hopped. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with fairly fine bubbled carbonation. Overall, this just didn’t trip my trigger, nothing special to warrent seeking out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle. Why don’tcha blaze up some of that sticky icky icky icky icky icky icky ICKY! - Snoop (the chronic). This ale’s original name was censored. Apparently some G-man finally listened to some snoop lyrics and figured out that the chronic is an an illegal substance? Anyway - this ale pours clear, deep copper with a creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Quite attractive. Aroma is honey, caramel and over-ripe fruit. Flavor is well-balanced with a hint of sweetness in the finish. Floral hops adorn the middle. A bit of citrus/pine lingers. Medium-full body and smooth. Good, drinkable ale but not that memorable.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Pailhead, thanks Kevin. pours a slightly hazy brown-amber with a fast fading head. nice malt aroma. flavor up front is good as well but goes a bit south from there. flavor fades quickly and the hops need to be kicked up a notch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Mad Mex, Monroeville. Light aroma that deepens after warming a bit. Mild sweet maltiness with some fruity hops. Bit of caramel, fruity pears, and some pine resin. Clear medium amber with thin lacing off-white head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts mild with light sweet caramel notes. Soon gets busy with nice hop bitterness. Biscuity notes, pine resin, and astringent finish. Some brown sugar sweetness. Nutty dry after. Good bitterness and well balanced with malty sweetness. Nice ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Zathrus13 for this one. Pours out a ruby color with a small thin head. Aroma is rather plain with some notes of hops. Taste was also slightly plain, not much going on there, some hops and some caramel malt here and there, not overlly impressed.

Bottle from Who else?? Zathrus13,thanks for all the brews in our latest and greatest. Something about this one,might have been a little off
as it really didn’t have much of anything to it. I couldn’t pick out a flavor that I could define.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sammy: Poured a deep copper color ale with small off-white foamy head with average retention. Aroma of deep caramel malt with some very subtle hops. Taste is also dominated by sweet caramel malt with very little hops presence that I could detect. Body is a bit thin and alcohol is well hidden. A bit weak overall and definitely lacking character to make this worthwhile.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a off-white, almost yellowy head. Citrusy hop nose, with some caramel and toffee. Flavor is a touch sweet caramel and toffee, then grows into a resiny hop flavor. The sweetness lingers in the finish, although a sharp bitter bite has to recede before you taste it. Solid and rather interesting offering, with a great story behind the name.
