2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 12 oz bottle poured into a Hunahpuís snifter. From notes.
A: Pours a clear amber/copper color, with a rather dinky-looking white head. Looks pretty good regardless.
S: All I pick up here is some unsweetened caramel.
T: The faintest twang of fruity esters builds to a caramel-y finish. Extremely unassuming.
M: Crisp, dry, and light. If youíre going to showcase little in the way of flavor on the palate, this is how you do it.
O: Nothing wrong with this per se...itís just so bland, though. Really just one step up from BMC in my opinion.

Bottle into shaker. Light head dissipates quickly. Translucent medium amber color. Nutty resin aroma. Malty sweet flavor with pine and doughy notes. Spritzy feel on front side with sticky sweet finish. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber orange-red and mostly clear with an off-white head that fades to a rim. No lacing. Aroma is bread, malt, caramel. Taste is semi-sweet with more bread, malt and caramel. Maybe some toffee and butterscotch. Moderate carbonation and a touch of bitterness in the finish. Straightforward but very drinkable. I like this a lot as a session beer.

Poured a beautiful reddish brown with a light had that disappeared quickly. Aroma is slightly sweet and malty. Taste has some of that same sweetness up front, nice and smooth. Pretty good.

Bottle. Smells good but mild. Hard to place the scent. Pours dark amber with a light head that lingers around the edges. Taste is also hard to place. A little bitter and almost no aftertaste. Mild carbonation. Itís okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear warm medium amber with a persistent ivory head and swirls of lace. Taste is caramel malt with a butter rum overtone. The taste moves smoothly through the palate until it is lightly countered by hops and carbonation. A nice unpretentious ale, easy drinking, good session choice. Recommended.
