2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark red and malty smelling. Little to no head. This beer tastes like a homebrew. It has an clovelike off-flavor that makes it hard to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Zero head and lace. Aroma is mainly malty with a touch of spicy/woody hops. The palate is rather still and this does make the beer easy to drink. This is the kind of beer that is hard to find anything right or wrong with it.

Very flavorful red ale, boasting caramel throughout. Nice velvety smooth mouthfeel and long finish mixes caramel and slightly bitter hops.

Had this one a St. Elmo's in downtown Indianapolis. Boy do they have a mean shrimp cocktail. Anyways, this is a light amber ale with a hint of carmel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very small sized white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly diminished.The body was carbonated, clear and the hue was amber.This beer left no lacing on the sides of my glass.The nose was hoppy and malty and the flavor was bitter tasting and it left a lingering aftertaste.The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and light bodied.This was not a bad beer, but it wasn't a great beer either.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This brew poured a small head of quickly disappearing medium sized whitte bubbles that left very little lacing and a cloudy amber brown colored body behind. The mild malyt aroma is barely noticeable. Its initial mouthfeel is smooth with a slight hop flavor along with some malt and caramel notes. It is a decent enough beer for drinking if offerred, but does not stack up to the so many other fine brews out there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber. A little caramel and a little citrus in the faint aroma. Similarly hopped to the lager. Woody and dry. Fizzy. This beer was trying to multi-task, and ended up a little muddled.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber hue with an orange tint. Very little head to speak of. White and quickly diminishing.
The nose is very malty with notes of milk chocolate, caramel, alcohol and orange blossom honey.
Weird, astringent, lighter fluid flavor up front. Quickly changes course with a moderately malty flavor. Balanced out nicely with a lightly pungent and bitter hop presence on the backside. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation.
Medium-length, slightly sweet and grassy finish.
