2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
For all the down-on-the-farm talk on the bottle, this is a Hepworth contract product. Aroma is floral, toasty, and caramel apple. Hazed orange bitter beer look. Tastes loaded with minerals. There’s some bitter hop content as well, but not much. Okay for market brand beer, I also bought the lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma has a nice, very light bouquet of caramel, floral and fruity notes. Flavor isn’t much different and very pleasant, just a tiney hint of sweetness with a hint of earthiness and pleasant buy very light bitter finish which balances out very well. Light-Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, a very nice, simple tasty brew with a BIG price tag for what it is....retails around $12 for a 4 pack...seriously??? Hopefully they have some die hard fans!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1/29/12. As I rise from my humble slumber upon my chaise whilst enjoying the finest in live entertainment, I spotteth this gem of a brew sloshing abouts in minest box chiller, kept cold by large blocks of the finest ice being hand fanned by lowly paid children. As I poppeth the cap dorned upon the top of this yee bottle, I see clean, white mist arising from the bottle like the pale ghost of my long lost sister, who died long ago of syphilis contracted from the dirtiest of Scottish merry men. The beer poureth smooth and clear light amber with a billowing, fluffy off-white head like a dirtied wig of yore worn thin by the longest of governmental disputed meetings. Disappointing, plain aroma, much like my sissy of a son who doth not fight the knights or ride thee away on a knighted horse. Nare a hint of anything worth expunging. A slightly tart flavor of fresh green apples picked by the finest of slaves ejaculates across my tongue followed immediately by dirt from the gardens and the slighest hint of sweet caramels my grandiest of mama’s used to procure from the shops in London when I was a child. Doth meh.
not great choppin’ wood. Merv wouldn’t drink this choppen wood. fucken hell.

Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 11.2 oz bottle. Light copper pour, little to no head. Pleasant nutty aroma, hint of perfume. Flavor is more sweet than bitter, pick up some brief vanilla and butterscotch notes, just a touch of fruitiness - apricots come to mind. Smooth, clean mouthfeel. Not bad.
