2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours a dark tea amber color. The aroma is tart cherries and sugary malty. The taste adds chocolate and sour funk. Pretty high carb, tart finish. Not very good. I expected more.

Can from Bine & Vine. Pours orange/amber with a slight white head. Aroma is malty with hints of hop. Med minus body. Flavor is malt, a little roasted, with very light nondescript hop. Maybe a little citrus. Dry hopped with air?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can, 03/06/14. Mine says 4.9% ABV, FWIW. Pours clear orange with a fizzy creamsickle head that dissipates soda-quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is bland, boring, caramel, biscuit. Flavor is about the same, light plus sweet, very light bitter, caramel and biscuit, perhaps a touch of floral hops. Unexciting to say the least.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some toffee with a bit of grass in it. The flavor is more hoppy than the aroma but still not as hoppy as I expected from a Pizza Port beer. I get some toffee and biscuit malt notes as well as some pine, orange and grass notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big can in a tulip (4.9% ABV). Pours amber/copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly fruity/resinous hops plus some caramel and pale malts and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent amber ale that is better than most of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
can. Amber with one finger head. Mild malt body with caramel and toffee. Surprisingly light on any hops. Ok, but I really prefer ambers with some more bite.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
4.9% Can. Tuesday Tasting with a Rogue Creamery Hopyard Grilled Cheese. A clear orange honey amber pour with a thick light beige head. A malty aroma with honey & caramel notes. The taste is surprisingly nutty, roasted barley-ish, sweet & malty. I was expecting something much more hop forward from Pizza Port. The beer on it’s own is a fairly average amber ale, possibly due to it being one week past it’s drink by date(so like 3 months old). With the grilled cheese both become more complex.
