3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I got it for the interesting name style and the fact that it wasnít too expensive. Turns out its a solid beer, and tastes great. Looks more red than amber, but had some solid flavors. Caramel and a bit of honey are quite obvious in terms of taste, might have a bit of citrus and chocolate. After taste was good. I was shocked that it was only 5% ABV... it feels stronger. I would recommend it.

Mild ales, much like their taco Bell sauce counterparts, are not very exciting... I got this beer because of the name and the.... I donít know... V8 spaceship boom box on the tap handle. Go marketing team for making me sit through this mediocre masterpiece of a beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Canals Rio Grande. Poured a murky orange-brown with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma of nuts, biscuit, light chocolate, earth. Fizzy carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Flavor is nuts, toast crusts, light chocolate, tea leaves, old raisin bread dough. Meh, could of sworn I rated this before but the ratebeer database seems to disagree.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aromas are a mellow and muted with tones of toffee, grains and biscuits, with undertones of chocolate and nuts. The beer is a rich, hazy, dark caramel color with a soapy, gelatin tan head that only retains a light amount and leave a touch of lace. The taste is a medium bittersweet, thatís not quite balanced. Itís a slick, oily beer with a fuzzy, zippy carbonationa and a medium light body with flavors of grain and dry caramel malt that finishes with a zip of spice and tastes of biscuit and minerals. It leaves an aftertaste of light grain, roasted nuts, and bitter wax.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, dark amber, nice off white head and some spotty lacing. Grain and malts on the nose. Taste is sweet and bready, certainly lots of malts and some nuts. Drinkable but not great.
