3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2011 Bottle. It poured a clear light brown that had a slight yellow hue with an average sized light beige frothy head that diminished quickly but allowed for some fair lacing.
The aroma was light of bread malts, some herbal and grassy hops and a somewhat lightly sweet yeast with notes of caramel and maybe a little nutmeg.
It tasted lightly sweet and malty with notes of caramel at first and finished bitter-sweet yet mildly acidic with a mild hoppy presence ant the end. The flavor may have only lasted a short while but was long enough to let you know this was an enjoyable brew.
Mouthfeel was quite creamy in texture and medium in body with a nice mild carbonation.
Overall a decent and tasty seasonal brew that is quite drinkable and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 01-30-2010 (Draft) This beer pours a small tan head that mostly diminished, transparent body, no visible carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is malty, hoppy, caramel, and nutty. The Taste is malty, hoppy, bitter, caramel, and has a dry finish. The Palate is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. All-in-all, just a so-so tasting beer without a lot of pizzazz to it. This is a beer that did not leave me wanting more of.

Amber pour with a small eggshell head.Very malty aroma with some raisin and brown sugar in the background.Flavor is malt, a little grass, slightly sweet, grassy finish. A little on the thin side. Nothing bad about it but hard to recommend.

Bottle. Brown/orange pour. Very little head. Smells malty. Tastes of roasted barley and citrus hops. Very different tasting beer. Not bad.
