3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 650ml into a tulip glass.
A: Hazy brown with a lot of carbonation bubbles and a white foamy head. Looked a lot like carbonated iced tea.
S: Fruity hoppy with a mix of malts thrown in there.
T: A bit bland, malty upfront into a very watery mid with a light hoppy finish.
M: Too watery and too much carbonation.
O: An okay beer. I wouldn’t buy it again because it didn’t stand out at all.

This needs some time to open up or it really sucks. Ahhhhhhhhh. Malty aroma not much bitterness. Def a nightcap.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light copper coloured body with a thin white head that leaves a nice lace. Aroma of light earthy (english) hops, strong malt, a touch of alcohol and a bunch of bright floral notes. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong assertive floral flavour with a bit of light malt, some light alcohol and a large dose of english hops. Aftertaste shows pretty much only light hops, floral notes and a light touch of malt. Overall, nice, but a bit lacking in complexity and strong flavours. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 08-May-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 04-September-2011.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours dark amber with a big, dense off-white head and gobs of sentiment at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is mildly bready, some citrus hops. Flavor is surprisingly bitter with lots of caramel, bready malt, and some fruit that emerges as it warms. Wish I would have waited til it warmed more, because it really came on in the end. A solid bitter.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/5/11
Aroma: The nose has some grassy and floral hops, and some caramel too
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear dark orange-brown color with a creamy beige head
Flavor: Tastes fairly bitter, lightly sweet, similar to the nose, plus some sour notes as well
Palate: The body is medium, with a somewhat sticky mouthfeel, and a tingly/lively carbonation
Overall, I wanted to like this one more then I actually did. The taste just had something off about it, like an unintended sourness. I don’t know if it was a bad bottle, or just not a great beer, but it wound up disappointing me just a little.

On tap at Brewery. Murky golden body with top head. Nose is malts and some caramel. Taste is hops and bitter, really bitter. Quite enjoyable. Especially at the quaint and rowdy brewpub.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice strong off-white head of fine bubbles. Reduces slowly and leaves a thick sheet of lacing. Weak aroma with some light malts and some mild cheese. Color is a hazy medium brown. Toasted grains, some caramel malts, a bit of dry chalkyness and some tea leaves. Mild bitterness but backed with a bit of slick malts. Kind of a slight sourness to this brew also. Finishes rather bitter with some lingering dry malts. This is a bit of a confusing brew but a decent one.

22 oz bottle. Pours Copper amber in color with a pure white fluffy head. The aroma is tangy, and grassy hops. There is a fruity malt note, adding just enough balance to the beer. Very dry finish.
