2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is
clear medium orange-brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, grain),
lightly hoppy (flowers, grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly
bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Not much going
on here, more or less drinkable but quite boring.

I was very impressed actually. I thought it would not be good but I really enjoyed this beer. It was refreshing and a nice somewhat sharp bitter aftertaste to it. I think that it should have a highr rating than what it does because it is not to bad.

The color is similar to many amber ales I've had recently. Nice tan head that lasted all the way down the glass. Heavy lager aroma and flavor...not much porter in the mix. Boring.

I""m not much for blended beers, but this is not bad. Brown with a light tan head. Great bottle (get the 1qt/946ml jug). Great taste with a steak.

Decent black and tan, though I’d rather pour my own b&t. Nice bottle, good for keeping change in after it’s gone.

Decent, but nothing special here. Drinkable but uninteresting (besides the packaging). Mild flavor high carbo.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Brown color with a laced tan head. Malt aroma and flavor is about all I could get, and even at that it was not very impressive. A bit thin and watery. Not a bad beer, but just doesn’t make a statement.
