1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. brown long-necked bottle. Best by end of July, but no year noticed. Clearly, this beer is old, and I mean really old. Poured out a light amber color, with no head, and very little carbonation. Nothing in the way of aromas stood out to me, except that damned Ringwood yeast. This may have been a decent beer if they'd change to an American ale yeast, but as it is, it's just plain nasty.
Tasted stale, no fruitiness, no hops, no nothing. Stale is the word.
A certified drain pour if ever there was one. Good thing I only bought one to try it out, because I'd be mad as hell if I had a six pack of this pig swill to get rid of.

Moderately cloudy amber-tinted orange. Offwhite head makes a brief appearance.
Soft, simple, inviting but dry nose that suggests apricots and flowers.
Initial flavor replicates aromas but then diffuses disappointingly fast, becoming watery and almost flavorless, leading to a very halfheartedly bitter finish.
Not much going on in this one.

Bottle. Pours slightly orange and clear with a white head that dissipated almost instantly. Aroma is fruity with a hint of bread and cloves. Taste begins with a fruit note and finishes with medium sour. Virtually no hop aroma or flavor. Probably not a beer for a hop nut like myself.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is like beer soaked clove cigarette butts...not good! Flavor is a jumbled mess of spices and fruit which somehow partially works but mostly fails to impress. I am very tempted to drain pour this one.

Bottle. I never liked this better much. It is nice looking- hazy amber with a voluminoushead. Smells dirty and kool-aidy. Tastes kind of pop corny and dirty. Sweetness which hangs around.

Tap: Mellow amber-orange, burnt sunburst highlights with a moderate haze & a fizzy, bone-white head. Fruity aroma, but artificial. Chalky & off-putting apricot, orange-y notes. Reminds me of crushed vitamins. Taste is the same way. Dry grain & lots of crushed vitamin-y medicinal notes that really don’t taste good at all. Moderate peach-y fruit. But the Flintstone Vitamin taste just obliterates everything. Mild florals in the finish, that’s all. I can maybe see how this would be a craft gateway for some, but in my opinion, this beer is gross.

Copper color with not much head. Aroma of fruit and earth tones. Taste of apricot, hops, vegetables. Don’t like the aftertaste, and i am not a fan of apricot. Resisting the urge not to pour down the drain.
