2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Florence, South Carolina, Red Bone Alley Restaurant, 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, little to no head - slight white lacing though. Odd, artificial aroma - that is not unpleasant - reminds me of some kind of jelly-like candy you get around Christmas for a fund raiser. Flavor is muddled and artificial and has hints of apricots and peaches and a touch of citrus - sticky - in an artificial way. Thick enough. Only thing the bartender could find that was "local" when I asked - took him a while to find it and was not sure what to charge me for it - he guessed at $1.50. Worth that - this one has suffered a bit from shelf life me thinks - rating gives it the benefit of the doubt. Will rerate upon encountering again.

Pours copper wit a thin tan head. Smells of caramel, some earthy splashes, spicy. Tstes peppery and spicy with some earthy notes and a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of - I think - ImperialJohn. Quite a hazy orange-deep amber pour, huge lasting fizzy white head. Only modestly hoppy aroma (more light resin and some dry herbalness) - lush cereal grain though, very nice (7+). Taste is pretty meh - less grain, some alcohol, a bit of metal .... ehh. Farly thick, somewhat undercarbonated, a little harsh in the finish - half decent, would have it on draught.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Orange-amber with a thin but foamy top; wispy aroma of a hop flower, the flavor is slightly more aggressive, but not much. Citricly hoppy but tight, with a nice melodic balance. Nice tarty edge defines this beer. Well done. (#2816, 4/22/2007)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle given to me by Dogbrick. Pours hazy copper with a medium off-white head. Grainy malt and caramel nose. Grainy malt flavor with some citrus and earthy hop character in the finish. Would like to try this one fresh before the hops go south.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clean golen orange with a good head and nice lacing. A nice not to grassy hops and malt aroma. Beer had a smooth creamy palate with good smooth carbonation not fizzy at all. A good taste of malt and hops with a lingering bitter that I like much. A really good beer for the style.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of Unclemattie: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a small head with minimal retention and no lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt is somewhat weak. Taste is dominated by some light caramel malt with no discernable hops presence. Full body with some medium to low carbonation. I guess this one is OK but nothing truly extraordinary.
