3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 3/22/13
Aroma: The nose is a mix of doughy/bready malts, caramel, citrus hops, and some light pine
Appearance: It pours a hazed caramel-brown color with a fluffy beige head and semi-coating lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet and mid-bitter, starts malty, but it gets somewhat hoppy as well
Palate: This one has a medium body, a smooth, creamy feel, soft carbonation, and a dryish finish
Interesting beer. This one was hoppier than I expected, and turned out to be pretty solid stuff. I’d grab this one again for a fairly sessionable Amber with a solid hop bite.

A - Pours a clear amber with brilliant ruby edges. Gorgeous spiderweb lacing.
S - Grassy hops on top of a bready caramel malt. The hops are fresh and clean. Gingerbread spice.
T - Follows the nose. Bready Butterscotch malt with spice hints throuought. Prickly grapefruit hops attack the tongue. Muted grapefruit flows through the caramel malt. The finish is dry and citrus and grapefruit.
Really well done. Very clean flavors. Hop forward for the style. Tea tannins come through strong. A solid drinker.

Bottle. Pour a clear amber body with a large frothy beige head that faded slowly to a thin covering. The nose is fairly decent, toasty malt with a little bit of a fruity hoppiness and a little caramel. The flavor is really quite weird, it has a fruitiness to it that tastes almost like fresh peaches. Not surf if its the hops, or some kind of flaw in how it’s made. Never had hops that tasted like peach. Light caramel and toasted malt as the base. Light bodied and a bit thin with fizzy carbonation. Not really sure what to think of this one. On one hand I kind of enjoy the fruitiness, yet on the other had I think it might be a brewing flaw. Meh, it could have been worse.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Vienna WF. Clear amber pour. Huge 360 lacing. Nose is hefty diacetyl. Taste is light tea, sugar, diet cola, with pretty obvious diacetyl. Minerally, over carbonated mouthfeel. Diacetyl giving faux body. Pretty messy but not offensive. Palate is not astringent or papery.
