2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear reddish orange body, thin off-white head. Dry, dusty and slightly caramelly / wheaties cascade hops. Its there but very light and basic. Taste adds the dry wheaties with some more PNW hops on top and an annoying dirty caramel sweetness. Malt and hops.... its all there, but just meh. If I were a homebrewer I could probably make as my first batch w/o trying.

Crystal clear amber body, almost no head. Aroma is mild sweet, cereal, earthy. Taste is bland earthy caramel -- could almost drink it without tasting it. Light-medium body.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer was recommended to me by a friend who was confused whether he liked it or not. After drinking it, I can see why. The first quarter of the beer is actually tasty enough, with a simple but well intentioned flavor. Suddenly though, the beer becomes much less desirable to the point where I didnít want to finish the bottle. Instead I swallowed down the last bit... and that was painful.

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.

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.
