3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours slightly hazy medium dark golden orange with a small slightly creamy off-white-orange head, some retention and lacing. lagering mellow fruity notes, peaches and apricots, fruity berries as well, floral and lightly earthy undertones, grassy and herbal as well, tea leaves, lightly toasted cereals, dash of caramel. a bitter-like oriented brew for sure. moderately low carbonation, light body, dry and crisp spicy-peppery-gently earthy finish. subtle, mellow and nice. not saying this often, but this one seems underrated, or let’s just say misunderstood.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Pours a clear copper color with almost no head. Aroma is straight up caramelized malt with maybe a touch of toast. Tastes like a basic watery red ale. Certainly not bad but just boring. Some hop bitterness in the finish. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Zingerman’s Roadhouse. Dark brown color with a khaki head. Overall, on the sweeter side with buckets of malt but enough hops to balance. Nice amber for someone who isn’t a big hop/bitterness fan.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 12-28-2011 and on tap at Graydon’s Crossing in Grand Rapids, MI. This beer pours a small ivory head that is fully lasting, transparent amber body, no visible carbonated observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is toasted malt, citrus and earthy hops. The flavor mimics the aroma and also is lightly grainy. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This is a session beer, but lacks character and the flavor needs some help.
