2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light burnt orange color with very little white head. Aroma of dough and some stale malt. Crisp, albeit watery flavor with some notes of caramel and dough. A bit of Hallertau hops in the finish. Pretty bland and nondescript.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Pours a clear amber with a thin quickly fading off white head. Lacing is okay. Aroma is spices, dough, and cardboard. Has an okay carbonation. The flavor is decent crisp and refreshing. Has a watery texture. A medium to light body. The finish is soft but okay. Lacks some aftertaste for me but not bad. This is an easy drinking beer.

Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago, IL. Hazy, orangish amber color with fizzy white head. Aroma is caramel and dough with some biscuit, red fruit and plum as well, spicey. Flavor is a sharp juice like flavor, definite souring, plum and red fruits once again made a little more apparent with the sourness. Medium and well carbonated body. Wow. This has become a definite sour bomb, like vinegar a little bit with a little bit of lacto going on as well. Though it isn’t bad the way it turned out, I will not give it as high of a score because of the infection.

12oz shorty bottle picked up on a road trip through Milwaukee. Id have to assume this beer might be a little past it’s prime. Amber-brown color. Patchy, oily head. Sweet aroma, brown sugar? Fruity, easy drinking malt taste. Wow, this is actually quite nice. Balanced and crisp, this is really done right. Malty and rich, while remaining light and medium bodied on the palate. Light amber malt flavors, lots of cream, and some underlying caramel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Light aroma as expected, but a good blend of notes that are decently appealing. Grass and light herb, mild citrus on the hop side, with milder fruitiness, and grainy caramel. Rather unexciting pour with only a light fizzy head that completely dissipates, lighter appearing in body, not watery looking though, mild carbonation, and orange amber in color. No wateriness in the taste, though fairly light and quaffable, with a smoother crispness that is not overly biting. Not a heck of a lot to the flavor, but a rather simple combination herbal grass, light and spicy fruitiness, and caramel toasted cereal. This works well though as the balance is nice. Overall, really not too bad, a good beer for the summer.

A pretty non-descript beer. Light amber pour. Fairly fizzy. Decent malt backbone but barely any hop flavor to speak of.

Quaffable and satisfying. A medium yellow colour, minimum white head. Neutral aroma, medium mouthfeel. Decent beer all around,I could have one or two. Nothing edgy or really tasty though. Appropriate carbonation.

Bottled. Deep amber in color upon pouring. Slightly sweet malty aroma. Sweet and malty up front with a bit of dark fruit. Somewhat bready with a bit of hops in the finish. Solid Vienna.

Bottle courtesy of pepsican. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of dry malt and doughy. Tastes sweet and malty with a sugary finish.
