3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Tattooed Mom. Cloudy amber with a light foamy white head. Medium malt. Light toasted wheat flavors. Orange banana cookies. Some hop bite is present but not a major force. Reasonably full body for the style. Not too sweet. Smooth finish. Might be my palate right now but tastes good after a strong bitter stout.

12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pale and doughy malts with a decent amount of floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

This was pretty tasty. On the hoppy side up front. Pretty orange color. The flavor in the body is a bit on the sweet side but it’s pretty tasty.

Bottle. Amber with a beige head. Aroma of bread crusts and nuts. Light bodied, getting towards watery. Mild caramel sweetness, spicy bitterness. Really rather empty before that finish, but pleasant and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is very light - hint of malts, but too light to detect much of anything. Taste is a tad bitter, but has a slight malty sweetness to it. Taste, too, is quite light. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper with a very small head.
Rich malty aroma, lots of toasty, and nutty malt. Tempting.
Similar flavours, loads of nutty malt making for a very moreish drop.
Low carbonation. Could be a bit higher.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I was going to pass on this until I realized it was an alt - clear medium amber- moderate lace - the nose is initially all Munich richness - very pleasant until some light vegetal and metallic (copper) notes show up - slight bummer - flavor is crisp and biscuity up front, but also slightly husky - moderate toasty vienna and sweet munich maltiness through the middle before a medium dry, medium bitter finish - lingering grain husks - much like the kolsch, this has promise, but it is troubled by a handful of minor flaws.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, a fitting follow-up to a Kölsch. Nose not stale but dank and a little vegetal, caramel with a heavy nutty component. Meaty. Pours a dark, hazy amber with a short beige head. Taste moderately dry with apparent Munich and nuts, caramel and light bitterness. Creamy fullish body. A little dulled, and not terribly successful w.r.t. a crisp lagery mouthfeel, but pleasant enough.
