3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Dinosaur BBQ Harlem: Effervescent copper pour with an off white film of head. Diacetyl notes, fruity British type ester with a berry note and a mild toasted biscuit underneath the butter. Average light body- a bit too carbonated. Fairly dry with a biscuity flavor and toasted undertones and a fruity/berry note. Finishes herbal and dry. Not bad, could be a bit cleaner and less carbonated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse with my bandmates. Poured a rich golden colour with an amber hue. Warm creamy cap with decent retention and lacing. Fresh fruity apricot aromas with other citrus, and nice cereal grain. Mildly creamy and medium-bodied. Again, nice apricot fruity taste with grain in the aftertaste (not much hop). Almost more of a fruit beer than a APA. Still, quite refreshing for this warm summer weather (and Polishfest a block away).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Dinosaur Barbecue in Rochester. Regular looking, pale in color. Toffee aroma also was malty, very nice. Palate was similar along with orange and finishing with some mild hops. ok Patty and I took Kara there for her 27th B-Day. Andy’s flight was cancelled and we got him a take out meal.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Draft at Dinosaur BBQ-Newark, 12/27/12
Aroma: The nose of this beer is fairly subtle, with bready and sweet malts
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color without much in the way of head or lace
Flavor: The flavor is a little more pronunced, it is lightly sweet and malty, with minimal bitterness
Palate: This one has a light body, a decent feel, and an average carbonation
I wasn’t really that impressed by this one. It’s an alright, but lacking beer in my opinion. It just felt a little dull.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Served slightly chilled at the bar of the Dinosaur Bar-b-que. Small foamy head of fine white mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was a light orange color with soft carbonation. An aroma of predominantly apricot. The mouthfeel was tingle from start to finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Poured a clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of biscuit and bread notes with a hint of backing sweet grain. Flavor was similarly malty with bread in the start and a bit of a sweet biscuit finish. Definitely missing a hop profile.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tan/Pale color with no head. Didn’t have a strong aroma just the smell of malt. Taste was decent, a bit malty with the taste of honey. After taste was a slightly bitter. Poured pretty thin. Not a bad beer to have a couple of.

Draught @ Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Syracuse, NY: Pale, straw yellow pour with no head. Lame straw and candy sugar aroma. Tastes like a boring corn and grain macro. Boo! I expected more, Middle Ages.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden ale with a thick off white head. In aroma, rather strong butterscotch and fruity esters. In mouth, a light malt with light buttery notes, watery and boring. Tasted at CNY brewfest, Feb. 6 2010.
