4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark orange color. Thick, fluffy head. Hazzy but pretty spartan. Nice thick lace.
Heavy grapefruity hop smell. Bitter and so inviting. Very bitter smell.
Seriously bitter, hoppy grapefruit flavor. Sweetly bitter aftertaste. Very delicious. English yeast adds the perfect depth and a bready base. Yeast/hop balance works; very little malt presence.
Really sits on the tongue. Semi-thick feel, but not chewy or chunky. A tiny bit fizzy.
Great drink. Hoppy but surprisingly smooth; bitter but kind of sweet. Gotta love this Wench.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wonderful color, medium carbonation, head is a bit thin, but not a problem for me. smells very nice, a hint of fruit on the nose, mouth feel is crisp, even refreshing. All together a very passable beer, however at $6.00 for the 22oz, there are better beers for the money. I did enjoy!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared at Parish Cafe in Boston. Pours a cloudy red-amber with a finger-thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, pine resin, hops, earthy notes, and dried fruits. Flavor of caramel malts, resinous hops, dried fruits, earth, and honey. Bitter and sweet. Not the hop bomb I was expecting because itís got so much caramel sweetness and maltiness to it. Medium-bodied, with a chewy mouthfeel and average carbonation. I canít get over the label; I guess itís a hot redhead trying to be sexy, but sheís making a face that says, "Iím having lewd things done to me and getting paid for it." It also has the quality of an image from the old Wolfenstein.

Nice pour. A malty ale with some fruit. Hops do not dominate but leave a bit of perfume taste. Medium body without too much intensity. Decent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
650 mL bottle. Reddish-brown with a beige head that begins well, but the bubbles are too big for it to last. Strong aroma of floral hops and sweet caramel, and thereís almost a tinge of unripe homebrew to it. Or burnt caramel. Something. The taste is there, too. I dunno. I donít like it. Nice bitterness, though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Pours a nice deep amber red color with a nice fluffy head. The head dies down, but enough hangs around to leave beautiful layers of lacing.
S: Wow this beer has a very unique nose. A nice sweet candy aroma comes pouring from the glass. There are nice undertones of citrus and a hint of vanilla. As I swirl the glass this one smells just like a nice sweet cake batter.
T: The taste is as good as the aroma. Nice sweet dark fruits come at you right up front. Some real fine malt is used in this one. Then the hops come at you in the middle. Nice sharp bitter hops with a hint of sweet pine. The hops linger, a light vanilla taste shows up in the finish.
M: Nice and thick.
