2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured clear lighter amber with a short cap of whitish head.. looked OK. The aroma picked up semi-sweet honey and vegetal notes with accents of green apple and light grassy hoppage. The flavor found sweet honey and partially-composted veggies at the core.. residual sugars and sharp carbonation on the edges.. finished with not-all-that pleasant sugars. Lighter-bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. sharp at some times and tacky at others.. not a good beer.

Amber body. Smells like alcohol and is cloyingly sweet with a thin body. Terrible.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from bottle, pours a decent amber color with no head at all, aroma is of grains and little malt, taste has a bitter metal taste that does not go well with the malt, overall just not good.

On tap @ Minhaus Brewery after the tour. A nice red-amber appearance with a decent head. Aroma of hay and light hops. Taste was of malts and grains. Overall, decent but not the best amber I’ve had.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Very sweet nose, malty and lightly sugary with some toast and fruit. Amber body with a short and then gone beige head. A little bit of ash in the body, dryish with airy malt and light metal. Consistent carbonation, lightly tart, a little dirty. Meh.

Bottle. Pour was light amber color with a an aroma of slight caramel, lightly sweet malt, and a touch of roast. Flavor was on the drier side with only a little malt character and no hop bitterness. Very one dimensional.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light copper color with a bit of a haze and a thin white head. MIld wheat aroma and a taste to match with a slightly sweet aftertaste that somewhat resembles honey. A little bland.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle - Pours very light amber with an aroma of caramel malt and grain. The flavor is of sweet caramel malt, grain, and some off tasting sourness. It’s light bodied and a little watery. Lame beer. Based on the four beers in their sampler, calling Minhas beer "craft beer" is a misuse of the term.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 12 oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) in a Shaker at 40°. Color is a hazy golden brown with very good carbonation and a tight off white head. Aroma caramel and roasted malt. Taste is crisp and spicy. Starting with a lighter medium body it goes down easy with a crisp feel. Finish is mild malt flavor with a light caramel taste, little spice and end with a light bitterness. After taste is a bland fizzy feel. This is a bland, simple amber.
