3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cock&Bull. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced good to excellent lacing. Moderate roasted apple bread and cascade hop aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with spicy food.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The beer pours amber in color with a finger of white head.
S: Not too much aroma to this. Bready malt with a bit of toffee and yeast. Some toasted malt with a little bit of a butter note toward the back end. Sort of bland and plain.
T: The flavor is also sort of bland and uninteresting. Bread and toasted malts with a little bit of a biscuit flavor. There is some very light hopping and minimal bitterness. Also some butter to the flavor.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Nowhere near as delicious as the Cherry Lager.

Another from the lakefront mix pack I picked up at total wine. Amber pour. Lots of caramel, light hops, grains and lots of boringness. Flavor is much the same. Not all that horrible. But boring. Malty and grainy...a bit sweet. Light hop bite at the fnish.

12 oz bottle. Deep amber colour, chreamy tan head. Lovely deep malty aroma, toasted malt and soft sweet caramel. Quite clean smelling and very fresh. Moderate/light bitterness but just enough to balance the chewy sweetness. Very nice vienna.

On tap at the brewery. A nice drinkability to this. orange body and soapy head, spicy pepper and clove and nutmeg. Above average mouthfeel. Hoppy grapefruit c-hops, good malting with caramel, good amber.Decent balance. Just not the greatest drinker for me, wanted something edgier.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a sampler from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Looks nice... a deep copper color with small but stubborn head. Aroma is caramel and hops. Taste too has a nice bitterness balancing out the hops. All-malt this is not, but it does taste quite nice.
