2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I bought a few bottles on a trip to New England last year. Unfortunately, this beer was rife with off notes. Iím giving the brewery the benefit of the doubt and assuming this was a bottling problem. It seemed like it was probably a decent enough beer beyond the off notes (which explains my quixotic rating).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours to a clear amber body with a thin white head. The aroma is strange with some Cascade hops and odd pale malts. Very weird. The flavor has some sweet odd breads and light Cascade hops. Really kind of strange. The palate is medium-light bodied and somewhat decent to drink. Very basic.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pleasant pale with flavors of pine and grassy hops mingling with wheat and a very light malt finish coming through. The downside is that itís not a very complex brew--but quite drinkable nonetheless.

Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short cap of whitish head.. nice clarity. The aroma picked up sweet honey, vegetal malts, and a touch of butter with a fresh cut wheat backing.. very syrupy and adjuncty as it warmed up. The flavor found buttery caramel and a touch of molasses at the core, with miscellaneous tacky sweetness extending outward.. grainy sweetness rode out the finish, with a touch of spicy alcohol warmth and fruit. Light-medium bodied and tacky as mentioned on the palate.. rather muddled in complexion.. lots of buttery, residual sugars on the finish.. seemed a bit old, but it was alright.

Beer came in a beer club mix. Poured nice but had sour and fruity notes almost no hop nose or taste. Not a good beer, i didnt finish poured into drain.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thanks Shachar. Best before 11/08. Hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma of hops, flowers, light piney note, honey and some malt. Rather bitter flavor with decent hoppiness, some earthy and floral notes and some sweet malt and nuts notes. Medium-bodied. Nevermind the BBD, this one is quite enjoyable.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light amber pour, very light colored head. Terrible. Stale malts and hops, something tart, metallic. Not very good at all. Nothig seemed in harmony at all.

Well, apparently I was digging this a lot more than everyone else. A nice malty, smokeyness type thing going, full of flavor. Bueno. These guys donít know what theyíre talking about.

I liked this one. Not unique, but a solid offering. A nice nutty malt character, with a decent hopping. Some grassy notes that fit in well. Good job.
