4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This has surpassed all other Amber/Red beers in terms of smoothness and maltyness for me. The description on the label is 100% accurate. With a solid 6 ABV you wouldn’t even realize, I would share this beer on cold fall or winter nights with someone who may not have yet discovered an appreciation for malty goodness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a ruby reddish brown with a thick frothy beige head. Lots of carbonation. aroma is malt and biscuits. Taste is malty with a little caramel and some bread. Faint sweetness on the finish. I like it and I think it’s better than it’s rating would suggest. Good beer!

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I don’t know why, I just really don’t like this beer. I’ve had it from a bottle, but this last Saturday my dad got a Nitro pour of it at the brewery. Wow, that made it much worse. The name seemed fitting as all I could taste was rust. He actually liked it. Me, I enjoy most everything from O’so, but this one beer.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy amber with little head. Kind of a stale bread aroma. Metallic, pruny taste. Crisp finish, slight lingering aftertaste. All said, a good campfire sipping beer. Not going to blow you away, but not going to let you down either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish red with an off white head. Flavors are bread, malt with a hint of mild fruitiness. Medium body and carbonation. All makes for a pleasing get home from work type beer. Plenty of flavor but doesn't overwhelm.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass at the Cornerstone Tap in Bailey’s Harbor, WI.. Displayed a clear, brownish amber color, with decent persistence to the off white/light tan head foam, and fair waves & spots of lacing. The nose was light grain with a touch of dankness, some toastiness, caramel sweetness, and slight esters as apricot. Moderately lingering hop bitterness, with fair malt content, a little less than medium body, and okay carbonation. Paired well with the Packer win and the Sunday nite, fried chicken special.
