2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Somewhat tame rendition of a rather bland style to begin with. The lightly roasted caramel malt is there along with a relatively timid hop bite (which is to say, to style) but there are so many other (better) choices available.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is buttery with strong notes of diacethyl as well as some caramel. The flavor is sour with notes of butter, diacethyl, and citrus. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
"Courtesy" of Skyview. Murky amber color with a thin head. Buttery and toffee filled aroma. Not too bad... until the taste. Oh god the taste. Sour and tangy apple mixed with spoiled wheat that has been siting in a drainage ditch for a year. Bleargh.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Pours a hazy deep amber with a rough off-white head. Classic American aroma of caramel and overripe fruit. Medium body with caramel and overripe fruit, somewhat oxidized and then killed by a very distinct underlying acidity and a bad chemical tang. Sour rather than bitter finish. Clearly infected - what a shame. 180808

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy to murky brown/orange with a lacing off-white head. Mild butterish and light fruity to toasted malty aroma. Flavour is mild breadish and light caramel malty. Shows a distinct tart citric note following with a fruity note. Doesn’t go to well together - obvious infection.

A nice medium bodied brew, pours a dark but clear amber colour with a full head. Sporatic bursts of hops in each sip. Aroma is pleasent with lightly roasted biscuit malts.

On tap at the Hops Haven brewpub in Sheboygan, WI. Pours a clear reddish amber brew with an off-white head that disapates to a fine film and good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some toffee and flowery hops. Taste is medium body, a little carbonated, with a metallic buttery finish. A slight dry hoppy aftertaste. As described in the description, a good balance beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Hops Haven. Poured a clear, coppery-golden with a medium cap of white head. Aroma had a base of caramel and darker sweetness with a hint of dry cocoa.. stale cardboardy notes too. Heavy Cascade-y presence in the flavor (citrus and pine bitterness).. lemon meat and caramel sweetness at the base with a rather high level of bitterness. This wanted to be creamy on the palate, but fizzled out to a tacky finish.
