3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber dated jan 2003. Pours a nice coppper hue with big smooth tan head. gentle carbonation and some fair lacing. Aroma of citrus hop and toasty malts. Very gentle palate, not thin, but very smooth and creamy. A very solid amber ale that i could drink again.

had this one the other night after the idica...hard to be good after that one ruins your hoppy palate. go back to the malt table and this is what you got. still could taste hops but obviously much more subdued. crisp piney flavors with a medium bodied malt toffee flavor as the back bone. dont be afraid of the alley cat he wont scratch.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium sized light tan head with a decent retention and splotchy lacing. Hazy amber/orange color. Sweet malt nose with a light hoppiness. A medium bodied brew. Medium sweeet malt flavors, light roastiness, crystal malt and floral hop flavor. Fairly well balanced. Finish is medium dry. Thanks to Bierbauch for this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Starts with a nice head of average size that is just a tiny bit past white in color. The head left a nice lacing as it slipped into the hazy amber beer below. The malt sweetness is well balanced with a light bitterness that ends dry making this a drinkable beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours out dark red color with a thick tan head. aroma is fruity in smell. i like this appearence, it looks good. certainly looks and smells better than it tastes. there really isnt much to it, goes down too easy and leaves little aftertaste. this is ok- glad i didnt get a sixer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
nice erratic lace, persistent tight, light brown head. vibrant amber/copper body. floral, fruity and well hopped. some caramel sweetmess. Thin, metallic and weak. some graininess and hop bitters, but I really don't think too much of it

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. brown stubbie twist off bottle. I hate twist offs. Anyway, no freshness date whatsoever. And I looked closely. Poured out a murky, chill hazed orangish color, with a fast fading off white colored head. Aromas are of caramel malts, Centennial hops, brown sugar, and slight charcoal aroma as well. Tastes ok, but smells better. Tastes are of charcoal, caramel malts, slight yeast bite, and hops. Medium mouthfeel is nothing to write home about.
Finished slightly dry, and bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber color with light lacing. Lightly hopped and balanced amber. Nothing particular comes to mind. I didn't mean to buy this one actually, I meant to get the stout.
