3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Balanced beer. Good flavor, but not enough of it. Not enough hops for a good bitter or ale. Light bodied and very drinkable.

From a bottle at Old Chicago. Pours amber with a decent white head. Some caramel and toasted malt. Nice bitterness but mild for an ESB.

Tap. A good light ale with an amber colored body and a light white head. I wouldn’t say it was bitter at all really, more of an amber light ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy my wife’s cousins in CO. Deep amber with offwhite head. Nose of fresh toasty malt, really quite nice and inviting. Flavor is fresh toasty-sweet malt with a nice underlying bitterness throughout. Full and creamy on the palate, this was quite enjoyable-- went well with a drunken evening of pool and darts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This is a decent ale...too off balance for my likings though. Needed more hops for my taste buds. It had a very strong caramel malt flavor which would have been great, had there been more hops. I’d drink again, but not a favorite.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours a dark copper orange with a one finger bubbly off white head. aroma is caramel malt and hops with orange, melon, and veggie characteristics. has a light to medium body with descent lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma, but with mostly veggie and the others faintly following. could not get into the veggie flavor in this beer but to each his own i guess. it smells and tastes like kind of a weird roasted caramel malt giving it that aroma and flavor. it is a little sticky as well.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours amber with a average size white frothy head that diminishes quickly but leaving some pretty good lacing. It has a light and watery mouthfeel with a slight bitterness and hints of caramel.

Slight cloudy golden pour with thin head. Mild hops nose but not too much. Medium body, nice malt flavor with light citrus and other hop tones. A pretty good ESB.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy dark burgundy with a fully receding light tan head. Aroma of caramelized alefruits, toffee. Taste is sweet, fruity with notes of plum, raisin, and toffee. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky with lush carbonation. Sticky and under attenuated.
