2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cleam amber brew with light head. Aroma of caramel, malt, hay, bread. Taste is sweet malt at the start with a little grass and floral hops in the finish. Still sweet at the end, but not overwhelming as this is overall rather thin and weak. Average pallate. A little sticky in the finish. Quaffable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear ambery-copper color, smallish white head not much retention, or lacing. Nose is extremely faint, some malt and candied orange. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly bitter throughout, mildly malty with some orange peel and bread dough. Finishes with some cereal. Unisnpired and extremely average leaning towards sub-par.

(bottle, thanks Skyview) Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma of some honey and a little caramel. Taste was also malty with a crisp finish, but really not much else.

[Bottle, thanks Skyview (Once again, I will change this if I see someone else actually brought it)] Burnt smell with a little spice. Malty, not the best taste. A little thin. Short finish. Very average.

Had this one on draught at the brewery in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Clear, copper pour with a thick off-white head. A nice malty nose and character. Pleasant but ultimately weak.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear amber with a small white head and a little lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts, with some vanilla and a bit of grass. Finish has a light citrus touch. Body is light to medium without much carbonation. As the start of the name implies, it’s OK, but I won’t search for this next fall. Thankfully, I only paid $6 for a 6-pack.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A nice looking pour. A clear amber color with a nice two-finger tall off-white head. No real lacing. Boring malty aroma with some acidic notes and maybe some light spice and hops thrown in. The flavor wasn’t good. Malty and acidic with no spice or hops pushing through. Thin mouthfeel.
