2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample. Amber in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of dusty citrus, caramel and pale malts. Lots of caramel malt/iced tea flavors going on, backed by more sweet citrus and iron. Moderate bitterness with a full mouthfeel. Too heavy on the specialty malts for my taste.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a copper color with off-white head. Bread, malt, and just a bit of citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt. More of a red than a pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A good beer in my opinion. One to just relax and enjoy. Has a bit of, coffee, roasty, grass, spruce taste that I don’t like, but it isn’t as strong as some other beers. So I say give it a try.

12 fl oz bottle. From Iowa. A big thank you to John M.
Clear amber colour with a small white head.
Sweet fruity hops, moderate bitterness and some caramel in the aroma.
The flavour is rather easy but not bad. There’s sweet fruity hops, sweet caramel and mild bitterness. Very drinkable. Maybe a bit too sweet...

Bottle, LOL. Seemed really metal-ly. I drank most of it and kept thinking it tasted like tin foil.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Toffee sweet malts, grains, and lightly citric and floral hoppy notes, followed by a balanced sweet and hoppy finish. A pretty run-of-the-mill APA.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Holiday Inn Iowa City picked up @ John’s Grocery. Pours a clear burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Somewhat dull herbal, woody hoppy, slightly spicy aroma. Smells a bit old. Caramel, light cardboard, a bit bready, a bit spicy, woody flavor. This bottle must be a bit old but I can’t imagine it would be much better fresh.
