2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours hazy orange with a large-ish beige head with decent retention. Aroma is bready, caramelly, spicy (cinnamon?), a bit of sour funk. Smells a little too malty for me. Taste is sweet (near cloying) and sour, hot alcohol; finishes kind of bitter. I sense some oxidation. Mouthfeel is slick. Seems a little sloppy to me. Unimpressed. Drainpour...I don’t do that often, either.

A good looking beer. Opaque, light brown color and a tall head. Simple yeast in the aroma. Dry malt flavor, with some wet paper. Dry finish, and some alcohol. 2012 vintage.

A cloudy orange pour with a tall white head. Opens with a light fruitiness on the nose. Quite a bit of bread with a touch of caramel, butterscotch, and cardboard. Moderate yeast aroma, maybe a little fruit. The flavor is fairly sweet and malty as well. Lots of bread, caramel, and toffee with some of the same cardboard notes that were present on the nose. Not really a fan of this one.

The aroma is weak but has toasted malt, dark fruit, and light hops. The appearance is orange gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall this is good.
