3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Cloudy peach-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. There’s not an awful lot going on with the nose, but it’s not at all offensive. Hints of fruitcake, tropical fruit medley and a whisper of toffee are the only nuances I am painstakingly able to pull from the glass. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is tangy and lightly tart, but mostly nondescript. At least it’s well-balanced, so there’s that going for it. Finishes mildly tart, dry and quite refreshing. Not exciting, but very drinkable. Thanks go out to StFun for providing the bottle!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Honey and apple cider aroma. Murky yellow-brown with small head. Mildly sweet apple cider flavor with just a hint of alcohol. A malt liquor I would drink again even while sober.

Bottle - thanks Folty! Somewhat tart apple up front. Hazy yellow pour. Kind of a weak apple taste - interesting but not terrific.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Paul’s for Andy and Max’s Fantasy Football winnings tasting. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head than vanishes immediately. Apple flesh on the nose, sweet acid. Tart apple, grainy and malty. Slow apple must on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle courtesy of shrubber85. Thanks again Roger. It pours with a totally opaque deep murky gold body that supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up apple skins and then a mix of thick apple sauce and pear juice. Hmm. Not too hateful for a malt liquor. The taste is nice and pretty rich with apple wedges, some pear esters and then a dry slightly boozy note. This is pretty nice and as such takes it a bit out of style for a malt liquor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Paul’s for the FF 2015 tasting. Pours a light body. Mouthfeel is thin with notes notes of dry apple, booze, sharp yeasty character, some spice, and boozy honey flavor. I wasn’t a big fan of this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden pour with no head. Smells like apple, cinnamon and honey aromas. Light flavors, not as fresh or fruity; spice also lacking.

Super cloudy yellow with a short off-white head.
Tart-sweet green apple and honey flavor.
Tasty...smooth, with a nice tingly acidity.
Very good....particularly for something in the Malt Liquor Category.
