2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Depending on your mood, it’s either not bad or the equivalent of drinking rust water. Worth a try in any case.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light amber with about a finger of white head. Aroma of skunky grassy hops, light caramel and grain. Taste is light bitter. Grassy hops and caramel. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not that bad. I’ve had worse.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A reddish amber lager with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet musty caramel, with light vinous notes. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with light roasted notes, grassy hops, a bit oxidized, but decent.

29/VII/2012 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle @ Crystal’s place - bottled: VI/23/12 - (2012-779) Thanks to Caytinator for sharing the bottle!
Clear orange beer, small irregular off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: offensive, something’s off, maltys, grains, cookie dough and stable. MF: ok carbon, some caramel, bit metallic, hay, little bitter. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, some citrus, grassy touch, pretty boring in all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hard to hit a character limit on this one.. a very basic amber.. ok to drink but not something I really like. a bit to much "grainy" style notes.

I definitely had this awhile back and somehow failed to rate it. An average beer, like most from these guys.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to tderoeck for sharing the bottle. Darl yellow color (definitely NOT amber). Irregular light head, interesting aroma, not that good. Light body and taste, a little sour at the end, typical of the style. Haymarket. Hard to love, but easy to like.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12 oz bottle provided by my sister as a birthday gift. Pours a faint copper with a smidgen of head that lingers. Very unremarkable nose. Taste is bitter, more in a battery acid way than a hoppy way. Lingers. Not very good.

Bitterness is the first thing that came to mind on first taste. Weak head dissipates quickly, sharp aftertaste. Wouldn’t want to have too many of these....
