3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours thick with a decent head, very clear, aromas of sweet malt dominate along with some hop aroma and oxadation and a weird metalic smell. Flavor is much the same, a sweet scotish style malt flavor, some hops, though I’d like more to balance sweetness. Finishes kind of sweet too not inviting another sip. OK-nothing to write home about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear orange-amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of caramel, bread, vague soft fruitiness, cracker, and alcohol. Taste is bread, caramel, alcohol, yeast, a bit earthy, and medium bitterness. Medium body, finishes dry. Alcohol is a little harsh, not a lot of complexity.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks good in the glass, smells really sweet. The taste is sweet and malty, then dry and strong. I think $11 for the six was a bit on the high side, but what’s a coupla two tree bucks if it gets you where you wanna go. I will put this into the new category of beer I just made up, micro-brew malt liquor. As long as I don’t have a headache in the morning, I’ll consider this a solid purchase, but make it a buck or two cheaper so I can get a lottery ticket, and it’s a "rock" solid purchase.

Dry, earthy hops. Burnt caramel up front. Frothy think mouth feel. It's decent but I won't revisit.

Pours amber with a thin head. Aroma is malty with some fruity notes. Taste mirrors the smell. Nice mild bitterness with a dry finish. Alcohol is well masked. Overall a fairly decent offering. Not my favorite style but good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
average frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. translucent thick light amber body. aroma: alcohol, honey, flowers and light hoppy. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation and heavy alcoholic finish. Aroma frutado. Dulçor frutado, alcoólico, lembrando um pouco de mel – saboroso, mas não dura muito. Amargor lupulado escalante entra em choque com forte e aquecido final alcoólico, que se sobrepõe a nuance inicial. 60 s
