3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 The clear, amber colored body topped by a one finger thick head gave this pour into the mug a classic look. Smell was also authentic, which is to say quite malty with a touch of spice. Taste was a little too sweet and underattenuated to be a good fest bier. Oddly earthy hop bitterness kept lingering on, and felt out of place for the style. Was this only 6% ABV, as it became too much of a tedium to drink rapidly. Is this a bold interpretation of the style, or is it good intentions gone wrong? Hard to say for sure.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
23.09.06 12oz bottle b-o dated 08/18/06. Nice enough to look at, the beer is a deep rusty orange about the same color as my favorite chair. The aromas are paltry with plummy hints, wet leaves, only slight earthiness. The palate is medium-light with agressive eff. Flavor is more of same from aroma. Mildly chewy, a bit peppery, and lingering earthiness. Seems raw, young, and some adjuncty flavors emerge with temp. This beer is all over NJ this year.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear copper body with thin white head that diminishes to next-to-nothing. Malty nose of grain and canned corn with slightly metallic aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet, but mostly vegetable like with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body with lively carbonation. Disappointing.
