2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I really wanted to like this more than I did, the only thing holding me back from rating it higher was the beer itself. It has a cool label design and comes in a cool stubby bottle ala Red Stripe. That’s really where the good stuff ends, not much worth reporting otherwise. Just pretty mediocre, I would like it better if it was free. I would drink it again, I just wouldn’t pay for it again.

Clear amber light brown color medium off-white head. Nose is almost exclusively brown sugar. Medium to light body, sweet without much hop bitterness, quick finish. Very basic.

St. Augustine, Fl - Broudy’s Liquors, 12 oz stubby bottle. Pours a lifeless medium copper, no head. Aroma has some mealy vegetable accents, a hint of molasses. flavor is muddled with some overripe vegetables, some molasses, just a hint of chocolate. Amber ale? Far from it. Oily mouuthfeel. Did not finish this one.

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.
