3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Deep amber color, long 1/2" ivory head, strings of lace. Taste is clear malt that grows a little sweeter in the palate, then suddenly has pine hops dropped on top of it, pretty much obliterating everything. An unusual balance, a little off, but then again, I keep drinking it.

On tap at the Millstream pub in the Amana Colonies. Near clear orange amber color with slight white head. Aroma is citrus and light malts. Taste has citrus, caramel, balanced toward the hops but not too bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 On tap at Boonie?s on the Avenue. Aroma of pale malts, bread, and citrus bitter hops. Average body with a crisp, dry, smooth feel. Mild sweetness.

Medium amber, hazy with a decent amount of white foam. Aroma is a pleasant citrus and warm bread. Grainy mouthfeel and malty sweetness could use a better balance. I could swear there’s a slight film left behind in the finish.

I really wanted to like this one a bit more, being from Iowa, and not getting much millstream anymore. But, alas, it wasn’t very good, wonder how much corn was used in its production?

As much as I love Mill Stream Brewery this one is a bit rough around the edges. Not bad if you love IPAs.

Bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with some white head. Decent citrus hops, fairly malty, possibly old/stale. Overall a nice beer, one of Millstreams better beers.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not much aroma to this. Pours a brownish red with fully diminishing head, excellent lacing. The taste is a slight bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. I think this is a good beer just sat on it too long.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy gold with lots of minute suspended flocculation. Aroma is piney and herbal (basil, maybe rosemary). Flavor is sweet with a nutty character as the malts warm, transitioning to a very sinuous hop brightness with a mildy veggie note. Flavor drops back to a subdues nutty malt in the finish, with a bit of grass and a slight bitterness. Really nice.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at CID airport tap house. Pour is almost clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is light chemical and soft hop notes up front with a light caramel malt note. Flavor also with light chemical, faint hop, and the same light, off tarty fruit taste of the octoberfest. Definitely a line problem here; or maybe a problem of too much detergent in the glass cleaning. I don’t know what it is, but it’s not right. I will have to revisit this later.
