2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear gold pour. Aroma was light floral and citrus. Moderate bitter, touch of sweetness. Yeasty, kind of muddled taste. Some bitterness in the finish.
Just not exciting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Lovejoys Austin. Clear gold, fluffy thin head, and great lacing. Nose is lemon hay malts, mild hops. Mild malts in the taste, mild hops in the finish with slight bitterness. Not very distinctive in any direction, but easy drinking beer if youíre not too picky. Good session.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask draught glass at the joint- served a fine turbid dull orange color, one and half finger white head that laced awesomely. Aroma of very light malt and pine. Hits the mouth with a firm medium body, malt is very noticeable, some hops transversed with very light pine in the middle, finish is a little dry but lasting. There ya go!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask poured, and awful. Easily one of the worst beers Iíve had. Smell was next to nothing. Taste was minimal, perhaps a hint of watered down hops, and incredibly bland. Very thin, and along with another of their beers, this tasted of spoiled milk. Never gotten a rotten dairy taste in a beer before, so I donít know what this means... I wouldnít waste your time with this.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask - Slightly murky orange color. Lite flavor and mouthfeel... unpleasently bland. No hops are noticed. Plastic dull bland palate with a really pale bland flavor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had on tap at Lovejoyís in Austin, Tx. The tap handle said, "Son of Samsonís American Pale Ale", but Iím sure it was the same thing. Murky orange appearance with a thin light white head. Neutral aroma (probably due to smoke in the bar), so Iíll give a five for not being skunky! Odd, artificial flavor, reminds me of Nestea Powdered Iced Tea - the kind your Mom used to make before real Iced Tea became the thing. Slight citrus notes, but is "off" somehow. Mouthfeel is very thin and powdery as if made from concentrate. Letís hope their other "house" beers are of higher quality, becuase I will be back - Iím a sucker!

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2004 Thie brew is usualy what I get if I go to Lovejoys. I love this place. BRew is always on cask. Pours a lovely copper color with a nice casky looking head. Spongy and dense. Nose: Notes of alcohol mainly. Not all that hoppy althogh they are definitely in there. Smells watery (like all of their brews) Really not all that special in the nose. In the mouth...its alright. Nice and smooth not too watery though certaionly could use some more body. Notes of ruffles potato chips, yeast, and a slight hoppiness that dies off into metallic shavings. Its ok not their porter but good

They have a cask conditioned version of this as well as the regular draft. Some head and lacing. Color was typical as was the flavor. Hoppy and rather smooth.
