3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... GABF RB Tasting ’06... Cloudy orange ale with tons of small, black floaties and a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. The nose is of caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla and light diacetyl/butterscotch. Some butterscotch in the sweet flavor as well, along with caramel and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied and watery with moderate carbonation. Sweet, then astringent finish. Kudos to DenverLogan for sharing the bottle!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 Re-rate. On tap at Trailhead Fort Collins. Burnt orange, clear appearance with a lasting frothy tan head. Aroma has biscuit, caramel, bread, and grass. Not overly assertive aroma. Moderately high bitterness. Moderate low sweetness. English ale yeast apparent in the flavor along with biscuit and minerals. A touch boozy. Some leaf / herbal hoppy notes. Not all that malty. I drink a few of these each year but it’s awfully boring and forgettable.

Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a clear amber with small frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is raisin and bready malt. Medium mouthfeel with light bready malt and lingering dry finish. Good.

The featured "beer of the month" in an airport restaurant in Denver, shared with my wife while eating burgers. Nicely malty, semi-sweet, with a subtle spiciness (ginger, nutmeg) in the finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2011 Tap at The Muddy Pig in St. Paul, MN. Clear red amber pour with a clingy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and slightly pruny/fig/fruit. Medium palate. Taste is bready caramel malt almost exclusively - mild notes of fig. Nice brew.
