3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served on tap at the North Rim, Grand Canyon lodge. Aroma was a nice mix of sweet malts with a fruity hue. Coloring was a rich amber with a light head and lacing that held up. Taste was malty with a slightly nutty twist and moderate to light hopping. The mouthfeel was decent. Overall, I thought this was a nice amber that complemented the view overlooking the Grand Canyon.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, watery cardboard, biscuit, hints of slight caramel with a touch of grass. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, biscuit into a bit of grain, husk, cereal, finishing slightly sweet.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
[Bottle] Clear copper pour with a huge amount of fizzy head that condenses down to nothing in a few seconds. Aromas of caramel, toffee and oxidation/paper. Sweet grains, stale grassy hops, soap, cardboard and some vegetable notes in the flavor. Very overcarbonated. Thinking I may have had a bad bottle, so I will try to re-rate at some point. As is, this is damn near a drain pour. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice pour, with dark copper color and light head, small bubbles. Light lacing. Aroma light and malty (biscuity), good enough. Overall, too sweet, and not a caramel dark molasses sweetness, instead it’s like a corn syrupy taste or something - adjuncts? It’s a bit cloying, but malt backbone is present and fine overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"another non-offensive but very simplistic brew from Oak Creek. I enjoyed it more than several other beers I’ve rated right around, but it’s just too simple (like a carmel malt kit) to score average or better. really no hops to speak of, maybe even less than the brown. Semi-sweet malt flavor is a little muddled. Again, not a bad beer, but like something one would make with a kit."

Tried this in Sedona as part of my buy local concept. No head and low carbonation. Big notes of rotted detritus and card board. Had a syrupy caramel flavor undertone.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 3/3/14
Aroma: The aroma is kind of dull, some caramel notes, bread, and not much else
Appearance: It pours an amber color, mostly clear, with an off-white head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same: a little malty and kind of dull, not much hop presence
Palate: The body is light and clean, fairly smooth, soft, and with a shorter finish
I thought this was a fairly unexciting one. It wasn’t an example of the style that I thought was particularly good. It is just kind of a dull beer.

Very nice amber color. Malty palate with a sweetness that shines through in the aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A boring and bland take on an amber. Pours a dark red copper with a soapy fluffed up white head. The nose has grainy, cereal skunk notes with a hint of grassy hops, lemon zest and toasted bread. Mild mannered flavour; easy to sip and paired well with nachos. Overall, a run of the mill brew

Bottle from AJ’s Fine Foods Scottsdale. Pours light brown with very little head. not much on the nose. tongue feels a bit buttery. If this was a silver medal, I’d hate to taste bronze.
