2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Yamaya. Creamy, rounded whiskeyish malt nose. Copper color, fine tan head. Crisp, puckering pickled prunes initial / mid has a small carb burn and some harsh alc hits / finish is mild, with a touch of bitterness. Thin-medium body. Okay. Aroma promises a lot more than the flavors provide. Still, drinkable.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours copper color, very clear. Almost no head. What little head there is, is white. Aroma is nonexistent. What little scent I’m picking up is sweet wheat. Flavor is bland. Nearly no flavor at all. This beer is boring. Not sure why this beer is why wife’s favorite. It’s not that good. Palate, no taste at all. Very low carbonation. No lace.

Similar to the black lager with an almost savory flavor and a hint of grapefruit,

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
An interesting bit of nostalgia, that starts off okay (although not much more than some malt and generic hops) but then descends into an empty palate, and spirals out of control with a horrible aftertaste that reminded me of the formaldehyde smell from the frogs we dissected in Mr. DiTurno’s 7th grade biology class back in ’84. Yuck.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle(von Max sein Vatter): Golden to orangey coloured, hazy, small but stable creamy off-white head, mild to moderate herbal to medical and slightly fruity nose, light bodied; dryish mild bitter-sweet flavour; the medical impressions return, a certain fruitiness included, in the shorter dry finish. Average, but not unpleasant ale…

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Deep copper caramel colored brew with a long lasting khaki head. An almond and caramel nose. There is also some nice dough. This tastes like grapefruit and raw dough. This also has a woody soapy finish. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brownish, caramel.. super carbonation on the appearance with bubbly head. Aroma of some hops, copper and a bit of paper. Reminds me of a nut brown ale. Light, pleasant, a bit of hops and caramel.. not much else. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at McSorley’s (New York, New York)
Aroma: Some resin maybe, but not much character beyond a base malt aroma.
Appearance: Light gold, with a thin white head.
Taste: Very light bitterness, otherwise there’s not much else going on.
Palate: Light bodied, with a soft carbonation.
The lesser of the two offerings at McSorley’s. It’s pretty boring overall.

1/11/13. 12oz bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a nice khaki head that fades to a film. Caramel, hay, metal, and stomach acid fill the aroma and flavor. Ugh.
