2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma of this beer is quite subtle with only a hint of toasted malts coming through, and the appearance combines a clear copper color and a small off-white head that fades to a ring. The taste is mildly bitter and slightly sour, which isn’t pleasing, and the palate combines a thin texture, long astringent finish, medium body, and a soft carbonation, which only adds to how undrinkable this beer really is.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moving out of KS rate-a-poolza. 12oz bottle poured into a .25L Corsendonk goblet. No date, but at least the store where I bought it cold stores all the beer.
A quick note about Weston beers: they used to be infected and undrinkable but about 2-3 years ago they fixed the issue, almost deserves a new entry.
Pours amber-red with a medium head that quickly fades. Loud head. Body is a bit hazy with a low clarity. Aroma is malt driven, low on hops. A muddy, earthy aroma with light vegetal and stale breadiness. Flavor follows suit coming off as an amberish scottish/bitter. I think that is the intention. Better than the ratings but nothing to search out.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that starts at the edges and remains. Aroma has a lot of bread and biscuit malts with a bit of caramel and straw backing. Flavor is similar with very sweet grains and biscuit backed by a bit of caramel. Doesn’t work for me.

On Tap at O’Malley’s. Great amber color, off white head, smells earthy. Tastes of caramel, toffee, and toast. Has a lingering earthy hop finish. Well balanced and tasty.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
A clear reddish amber with almost no head or lacing. Aroma and taste of malt with some sweetness and an astringency ending in bitterness. Light mouth, almost watery. Not very impressed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subtle and drinkable English-style pale that really doesn’t do much wrong. Red color with grayish-white top, persistent sticky lace. Caramel nose with some coppery mineral note there. Gentle, dusty-grassy hop bitterness. Balanced and very drinkable.
