2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brewtopia’04. Reddish-brown, clear; fluffy head. Earthy aromas, bready. Not much to body for a strong ale. Alcohol not very prominent. Tasty but too mild, I thought, and falling short of the mark.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a medium black color ale with a nice foamy off-white head with standard retention. Aroma of roasted malt is kind of weak and I could not find anything else really. Taste is also a bit thin with some roasted malt and not much else going on. As mentioned, body is thin and carbonation is low I’ve had much better beer form that style to truly care about that one.

Clear brown with a small white head. Nose is earthy, tobacco and horse. Taste is very malty that’s, sweet, woody, maybe a bit nutty and also… well… “hairy”!?! Something about the taste reminded me of wet fur or something of that nature. Decent beer but I like my beer like I like my women, not too hairy.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer was so enjoyed by President Clinton during his visit to Lake Placid that he had Lake Placid Brewing send more to him at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. However, I'm not Bill Clinton and I'm less enamored with this beer. It has considerable bitterness, particularly noticed after the malt taste has faded. Also, it's a bit roasty. Reminds me how at the end of watching TV's "Family Ties", they would say "Sit Ubu, sit! Good dog."

Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Brown coloured head. Light spiced, light grassy aroma. Flavour of liqourice sweetness and spice. Ends on a light sweet note. Strange brew.

Dark brown color, with a reddish tint......almost completely opaque. Creamy head......somewhat of a roasted malt aroma. Malty taste up front......very crisp mouthfeel. Finishes with a slightly strong back and a bittersweet aftertaste.

Judging by the previous ratings and the overall scores of this beer, it looks as though I’m in the minority. The Ubu Ale didn’t sit well with me at all. I enjoyed the dark reddish brown color, but the beer couldn’t keep a head on it and there was no lacing left behind on the glass. The nose was very malty and bready, but not much else. The flavors and body were also very malty, with some caramel and rye notes. The finish featured a bit of chocolate and alcohol in it, as well. I can’t really put my finger on it, but this beer just missed the mark for me.

Draught, 7%. Weak roasted aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is roasted with some alcohol sourness. Not so malty or sweet. Vinous finish.

Bought this in bottle while at grocery store feeling too lazy to go to beer store. Place had several of my old dependables in 12-packs, but only wanted six. This beer was so not me. Malty in the extreme, skunky on the palate. I forced myself through one and will give the rest away. I think my dislike of this is largely a function of my preference for high-hopped pales and IPAs. This was like a chocolate malt with beer poured in it. Might be good to you, but not to me.
