2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nutty malt aroma with a slight sourness. Light/medium brown with a tan head. The first thing I notice is a sour flavor that I generally associate with a bacterial infection. There is a nice roasted malt and caramel flavor behind this, but it can’t cure the sourness. Smooth creamy finish with a woody (but still sour) aftertaste.

Great looking label. Very disappointing beer. I tried to give away a few bottles it was so bad. More wasted money on an inferior brew. Tasted awful.

Draft at Hyatt resort in Scottsdale AZ. Pours brown with a light beige head. Nutty malt aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with steady carbonations. Flavor of nutty malts, chocolate, and caramel with a balancing bitterness. Light grainy finish. Not bad, definitely better than Newcastle

Nice reddish brown color with thin off-white head.. Sweet caramel nose. Sweet cloying flavor, too sweet. Faint grassy finish. Seems to get more unpleasant as I drink more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish brown. Aromas are mainly malt: bread, caramel, dried fruit at the back. Taste is really nice. Just the right balance of chocolatey malt, sweet nuttiness and hops.
