3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Mars Cheese Castle. Light golden pour with a one finger white head. Citrussy hop aroma and flavor. Hop forward, could be an IPA. Good mouthfeel and a nice accompaniment to the grilled chicken sandwich. Very tasty would definitely get another in the rupture.

Bottle. Hazy deep golden brown with an off white head. Floral pine with light mango and brown sugar. Bready yeast with toffee and stewed autumn fruit. Light herbal bitterness. Not quite as impressive as all the adjectives on the label.

When I first picked up the bottle I thought: "Hamdingers!!! Oh boy!!! The processed ham product of the 70s!" Alas it was not to be. This stuff is O So Gay.....or not....either way its not Blatz. So there is that. I would drink it again, if I had to, but as long as the Blatz is flowing like Hamm’s I doubt if it will ever cross my palate again.

pours a clear copper gold with a medium white bubbly head. Aroma is faint floral. Taste has hints of orange citrus. The hop presence is evident, but it’s less bitter than expected. There is some bitter on the finish, but it doesn’t linger as long as some. There’s some sweet there as well. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had a minor gusher problem when I popped the cap off this puppy. Other than that, my only complaint is that this ale is a bit too light, which is a shame. It has a fine look to it, an amber/bronze body with a rocky off-white head that coats the glass with globs of lace. The aroma is dandy, pine, floral, and tangerine scents over a soft toffee sweetness. Very smooth, soft mouthfeel. The taste4 is at first citrus fruit, then caramel, and a resiny and floral bitterness. All very good, and I wish I could rate it higher, but all the sensations were just a bit too light.

I’ll go against the grain here. This is an excellent outside the box APA in my opinion. Very unique piney grapefruit thing going on here, but somehow it distinguishes itself from others in the style. A very nice tanginess in the flavor. This is a treat, and one I’d gladly revisit. Picked this up in Onalaska as a part of a build your own 6 pack.
