2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into Red Sox pint glass. Enormous head that lingers long after the pour. Rich red color, but not overly dark. Malty nose. Complex malt flavors, one of which is (again) sour. Clean aftertaste for such a complex brew.

I really enjoy the skunky taste of this beer. Good mix of malts and hops. One of my favorite nimbus beers.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Recently purchased 12 oz bottle.
Like other beers from this lousy brewery, this one gushed out of the pint glass with just a small pour. The aroma is bad and the flavor worse. Incompetently crafted and highly likely to be infected. I have had had 4-5 other beers from the brewery, from multiple sources on different occasions, all of which were bad. Moreover, both of the other two people I know who have had a Nimbus have had similar poor experiences, also ending with a drain pour. I can now put this on my small list of never again breweries and urge anyone reading this to do the same.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10/5/14. 12oz bottle from Exit 18. Hazy amber red pour with a small khaki head that sticks and laces okay. A bit of cardboard and nuttiness on the aroma, sweet toffee. More in the flavor, nutty, a bit of green grass, chocolate, and sweet toffee. Not as bad as I was expecting.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on October 26, 2013. Dark amber color, surprisingly firm bittersweet nose with strong malty backbone, interesting bittersweet flavor that’s like a cross between a bitter and an amber ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BevMo, Phoenix. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a hint of hops. Pours caramel-amber colored with a thin, white head and no lacing. Sweet and malty to start with a lot of caramel. Finishes dry and fairly smooth with only a slight hoppy bite that lingers on the palate. Nice and refreshing take on a red.
