3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear light brownish coppery amber, with some carbonation. Medium to large fluffy dense white head. Loaded with earthy, weedy notes. Light caramel, light toasty. Medium body. Not alot going on on the palate. Flavor has a bit more malt character than the nose. Solid beer but nothing too special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Earthy, weed, crisp, refreshing aroma. A little sweetness as well.
Tastes fairly smooth, but just a tiny bit lacking. Toasty, a little bitter, maybe it’s a little too balanced. A little drying.

An average alt. Closest approximation is Ad Astra from Free State, though this is less sweet and more watery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber color with a tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt caramel, dark fruit and hint of alcohol. Taste of malt, caramel sweetness, bit of dark fruit and spice. Mild bitterness with a dry but slightly sticky finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and malty with a definite feel of the alcohol. Enjoyable beer, reminds me of an Altbier but with a extra splash of alcohol.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2013 OBF last night: sampled. Sweet, sour, and complex. Alcohol seemed higher than 7.5%. Interesting with some good flavors, but it was a little overwhelming and kind of all over the place. Didn’t really notice the hops. Memorable, but not all for the best reasons.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
When poured into the glass, this beer gives you high hopes due to the scents of earthy yeast and caramel malts as well as the orange color with a large off-white head (despite how that fades rapidly). However, when you sip the beer, the quite sour flavor with only the tiniest hint of sweet lets your tongue down; furthermore, the medium body, thick texture, sour finish, and average carbonation are merely average and are nothing to help this beer stand out as something great.
