1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not entirely sure why I’m drinking a summer ale mid-winter...but anyways. Pour from a 12oz bottle, a dark orange/amber. Scent is a little lemony, reminds me of kitchen cleaner. Taste is malt and lemon, overall pretty thin and watery. The label says Hops and Glory, but this is neither hoppy nor glorious. Ugh.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A mid amber coloured beer with a thick white head. A slightly sour note at the beginning of the aroma, then a light malt aroma comes through. Fizzy mouthfeel. The taste starts well with a tangy citrusy hop flavour, but this soon fades into a mildly bland, biscuity malt flavour which itself drifts off in the finish, leaving a tart, synthetic lemon juice type taste in the mouth.

Nothing special. The nose is grassy with notes of hay. Golden with a white cap. Balanced with a little towards the sweet side. Crisp and clean finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Gold body; medium white head. Sulphur, English hops, spice, a hint of red fruit, black malt, aromatic, minerals, dialactyl, dirty, wet cloth. Bittersweet. Dry finish. Watery palate. Similar to Badger Golden Champion or Pedigree. Brewed by accountants. Like a crap microbrew, or a mass market cask ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle purchased as part of a mystery six pack from Andy’s in Rochester, Minnesota. The pour is a clear golden with a foamy two inch white head. The aroma is light grain, and some sweet floral. The taste is a weird herbal honey floral sweetness, slight dirty metallic malt, and a weird grassy dirtiness to finish. It tastes very "industrial". The palate is medium bodied, long lingering dirty finish. Not all that refreshing. Not my thing.
