2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at a sports bar in Waltham, Mass. Reminds me of Yuengling. Amber in color with little to no head. Not much lacing left on glass. Aroma and taste moslty roasted malts with some faint hop aroma. Overall not too bad. Would not seek out on a regular basis.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma is mix of malt, yeasty dough and resin. Appearance is clear medium brown (think root beer) with good sparkling and nice inch-thick foamy off white head with decent retention and good lacing. Taste is more sweet than bitter but a mix. Not terribly complex. Palate is light to medium bodied with average carbonation and moderate finish, mildly bitter. Overall, interesting smelling and above average appearance for a highly drinkable but fairly average tasting/mouth feel beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber from a bottle. A caramelly nose and slight sweet malty flavor are kind of overshadowed by the thin, almost vinegary palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured it from a bottle into a pint glass. It pours an amber color with a nice head and some lacing. The aroma is caramel and malt. The taste was a crisp and bready malt with a hint of hops. This was a solid and very drinkable amber.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle in a pint glass.
A hearty amber colored beer. More hearty and hoppy and less sweet than a typcial American amber, I think this is actually an altbier.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing impressive here. Run of the mill ale. “Remains the largest selling craft-brew in Vermont” Really?

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is comprised of lemon, banana, clove, and caramel. Taste was extremely strange to me, on first sip It tasted like green beans. But as I got further into the beer the floral notes mixed with the lemon to make this beer a little better. Medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Could have just have been me on this day but I find this beer to be weird, not bad, just not a taste that I like.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured as a taster - will re-rate once I have a full serving. Pours a nice amber color with little white head. Aroma of malt and some hops. Taste - malt, subtle hop notes. I imagine this would go well with food.
