3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Glass. pours an amber copper with an offwhite head. Aroma is of toast, bread malts. Taste is Toast, biscuity, bread, almost tree bark-like maltyness. palate is suprisingly thick, but not to the point of discomfort. Its overall a tolerable beer. Not exellent, or outstanding, but also not a watered down piss infested budlight. 1554 is still my favorite from New Belgium.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very mild aroma of sweet caramel malt with some minor hopping. A clear light reddish amber with many bubbles, a big fluffy white head and some decent lacing. Taste is extremely mild light malt with mild hop and some mild bitterness on the end. Palate is pretty watery. Overall, very ordinary, nothing stands out about this beer; it just doesn’t have the off flavor of macro beer. I almost swear this beer was hoppier and more flavorful in the past, but this was the first I was patient enough to rate it.

A good based amber to replace all the domestic junk out there! Good beer for introducing people to craft beer!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I love the marketing behind this product. However, I think that the flavor of this beer falls in the sweet category. I like a bit more structure to my beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint (from notes). Looks solid; a transparent amber with off-white head. Smells and tastes of toasted malt with notes of biscuit and caramel. Average on the palate. Not bad, but I’m not sure why it has the cult following that it does. Probably because of its drinkability, but it’s certainly not exemplary for the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A classic. Not my opinion, but a fact. It's a hop/malty light wheat palate, pours amber with a just off white head. 5.2abv, this is a good, good beer for sports.

On tap. Hazy amber with off white head. Aroma of burnt sugar, pine, resin, urinal stone, soap and spicy notes. Taste is bitter and hoppy, soap and resin is dominating. Pleasant beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale buff head. Aroma is malty and a touch fruity, not strong but still inviting. Flavor is mainly malty, with an apple/pear undertone and a hint of hops. Texture has average thickness and fizz. A decent ale and a good go-to beer.

Not too sure about this one. Hadn’t had in a while. I remember it being better. Had it out of the bottle, lacked much flavor.
