1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle thanks to James/Aaron at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a hazy amber with a tan head that dissipates nearly immediately to the edges. Aroma has notes of artificial cherry with a good amount of cookie backing. Flavor is full of really sweet artificial cherries and not much else, maybe a hint of sweet corn.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taste from a very pretty bottle. 2007 vintage. Hazy dark brown amber orange color. Thin off-white ring of head, some ropes and reaches of lace. Good cherry aroma in the nose... Moderate to bigger sweet taste, syrupy and "fake wood" as Max says. Medium to bigger body, smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy, lightly slick. I dunno.... Decent cherry imperial lager, gotta say. Reluctant to say it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle I brought to "celebrate" Max’s 30th. Pours reddish amber with an off white head out of the missile/marital aid bottle. Nose/taste of cherry, light cherry soy and toasted grain. Simple. Not overly unpleasant. Not great. Not terrible. Just okay. Lighter medium body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 8-26-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small fizzy ivory head, mostly transparent/slightly hazy reddish orange body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The Aroma is sweet, cherries, sour, and tart. The Taste is sweet, sour, tart, cherries, and finishes dry. The Palate is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, the 8.5%ABV is hidden but lacks character and is a beer I do not recommend trying. It is not a "bad" beer, just lacks a good flavor and it is a beer I will not drink again.
