2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. Clear topaz with a four-finger head that leaves some creamy lace. Dry cereal, honey and grass aromas. Mild flavors of grain, sourish grass, citrus and honey. Light body is watery, lightly carbonated and finishes dry. Why is this placed in the "Bitter" category? It is obviously a mediocre golden ale even by the commercial description.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours rather light gold and barely hazy at all with a tiny white head. Nose is light, crisp, almost tart, and almost like sweat. Flavor is a bit more assertive than I thought. A good, clean, even breadiness and crackers is noticed throughout. Hops are rather mild and don’t add a whole lot. Very unexciting, but not woeful.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bad beer. The guy before me is right on, this beer smells horrible. This beer’s only saving grace is that I’m using it to chase some GOOD scotch.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle thanks to badnloose. Poured a pale golden color with an extremely small head. Aroma is almost a new level of bad. Sour aroma with notes of grains and straw. Flavor is much better, but that’s not saying much. The beer is weak malts, with grass.

tap @ Natty Greenes: Poured a clear light golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma. The flavor was malty, sweet and a little corny. Light hop finish. Light to medium body. Crisp semi-dry finish.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow and white head. Earthy aromas, soil? Bark? Hay? Certainly tastes better than it smells. Flavor of... not much? Instantly forgettable.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle poured a hazy gold with a small lingering off white head. Aromas of bread, rotting grass clippings, earthiness and a hint of citrus ( one of the worst smelling beers I’ve came across). Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, rice, light earthiness and a faint hint of lemon with a crisp malty finish. Thank goodness it does’nt taste as bad as it smells!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color was very pale yellow/orange. The head was thin, off-white. The aroma was skunky and macrobrewed. The flavor was terrible. It was corny rice water. Thin body, abrupt taste. I couldn’t finish drinking it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a pale golden yellow with a htin white frothy head. Smells like bad grass, farts, and horse ass. Man, "ew" is not a good way to start off a beer. Tastes about the same. Tastes rotten. Man, bad grass and cardboard and just bad. Don’t drink this ever.
