3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle from Gomer’s Lees Summit, MO. Totally forgot I had all these. Pours a cloudy, orange-amber-gold colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has some nice orange hops with a medium sweet, bready malt backing that has some caramel to it. A bit of a grassy spice and fruity apricots as well. Flavor is bready caramel, orange hops with some grassy spices, and somewhat piney towards the end. Finishes clean and dry with a medium-high bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Smooth, medium body and a creamier, moderate carbonation. Overall, clean and smooth with some nice fruit notes, but a bit too bitter. My favorite of the series so far, but haven’t had the Brett yeast yet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a murky, opaque orangey brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of grassy hops, herbal notes, earth, and some feint tropical fruits. Flavour of earthy dry hops, grainy malts, rye-like bread, and finishes with a very slight fruity tinge. Nice dry body, though a little dirty and messy. Decent.

12oz bottle 7/22/12 (Binny’s Naperville)-41° in Lager Glass-Pours a hazy amberish golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and sweetness. Taste of hops, citrus, malt, caramel, and bread. This medium bodied brew was not bad. I don’t know what I was expecting but it hides the ABV very well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 5/5/2012. This “IPA/Strong Pale Lager(?)” pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Not a whole lot of that typical pilsner spiciness. A touch of sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 Bottled: Pours hazy murky amber with a huge fluffy, off-white head with excellent lacing. The nose is with piney, earthy hops and caramel. The flavor is medium sweet with bitter hops, with citrus fruits and caramel notes. Medium bodied with a bite, oily texture and lively carbonation. Solid bitter and more dry finish. OK.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Poured cloudy orangey-amber with a tall, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up clean bready notes and lighter-skinned fruits, with fresh oranges, peaches, and other fruits around.. light peppery notes too.. surprisingly good!. The flavor found bread and mixed fruity malts at the core.. Orange and pine resin bitterness and light sourness around.. finished dry, fruity, and peppery.. tasty! Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. smooth across the middle.. good transitions through the mouth.. excellent stuff!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, opening night
Bright amber color. It’s the first of the series, I can’t yet compare it, but the fruity hops are somehow too strong to reveal the qualities of the yeast. Both aroma and flavor are rather fruity, and the yeast seems to build a spicy character; good toffee backbone.
