3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
commercial description is pretty accurate on this one. problam was I ordered this at Old Chicago. After being served the beer without a glass and then having to wait 10 minutes to finally get it, I was brought a frosted mug! By the time it was at the "proper" temperature, it was almost time to leave. amber color with a good foamy head, toasty malt and decent hop bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a soapy off-white ehad. The aroma is smooth malt and faint earthy hops. The flavor is mostly sweet malt, but not very strong. There are also some earthy hops and a general ashiness that especially comes out in the aftertaste. Not bad, but no tparticulaly satisfying.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer has an aroma consisting of roasted grain, nuts and berries in the background. It is a copper colored solution that pours a good thick off-white head. This beer is thin and offers a taste of toasted sour dough bread that is a tad bitter which fades to fast leaving a nutty taste lingering.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy amber ale with a thin white head. Stale, moldy smell, taste and finish. I suspect this beer may have been mistreated.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Lightly hazy amber ale with an orange tint. Small, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose is of black tea, light butterscotch and mild cocoa. Flavor is perfectly balanced, but thin, with just a hint of toffee. Light to medium-bodied and lightly creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp and fairly clean.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a decent brew, and perhaps a little underrated. A little hop bite, with a little sweetness and malt. It is thin, but I think that’s what makes it a good session beer. Drink the whole bomber yourself.

On draft. Slightly rocky off- white head that mostly diminishes. Nice lacing, especially for a medium-bodied beer. It was clean and well hopped. Try it with your favorite pizza!
