2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, mine labeled Rochester, NY, not Novato ... so I assume Genesse. Moderately golden, "normal" macro looks. Corny, bit sticky, definitely tilted toward biscuit and sweetness. Not offensive, but not exactly sexy, either. (#5249, 9/7/2013)

Has a lot of caramel flavor, or maybe not? Not really that good, but it is 6.2% alcohol, so...

Aroma is sweet malts and a hint of grains. The flavor is sweet malts, a hint of hops and a adjunct/metallic characteristic in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very clear,light gold,short head leaving light froth and some lacing.
Nose is almost neutral but has some slight candy/bubblegum light carmel or butterscotch/slight grain sweetness.
Taste is pretty good,it has some solid malt,with grainy sweetness,some hop, a mildly dry finish with a light backing bitter to balance. Slight fruit also,but more of a buttery light carmel taste. Some heaviness on the finish which would be the 6% it has to let you know some of its richness. Not bad.
