Bottle - fizzy, clear dark copper - nose of copper, grain husks, light DMS and a mild sourness - not promising so far - prickly acidity up front, followed by some corn, husky grains, light butter, light sourness - metallic finish - terrible.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark gold body with an orange hue and a thin white head on top. The aroma has some packaged wheat bread with some carrots behind the malt. The taste has some sharp white bread crust and a little bit of raw potatoes. The finish is like hay. A decent, fairly dry brew that is good for summer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Squat, California 12oz bottle, throwback label. Clear, rusty gold, small sponge-rubber head. Slightly spicy, bocky aroma that leans on the malt. Tangy, malty, a little musty, light toast, a little grassiness, faint vanilla. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, proper carbo. Mineral and lightly bitter finish with toasted bread/biscuits. Lost somewhere inbetween vienna and bock, not bad. BOTM club selection - Thanks, Uncle Doug!
