3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg @ Porterhouse. Brownish red color with a small off-white head. The nose is very faint, and I’d be generous to describe it having notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, and light singed grass. The taste is amazingly simple - caramel. Not much else. Some light bitterness. Active, swishy carbonation on the tongue. Overall, not bad, just completely forgettable.

Draft at Gingerman. Clear deep amber pour with a tight, creamy off white head. The flavor profile is caramel malts and earthy hops. One dimensional, but nicely balanced. Coarse husky grains on the finish, lagerish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Porterhouse Central. The beer pours a clear reddish-amber color with a medium eggshell white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of caramel malt and hops. Light body with flavors of earthy malt, toffee and hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very grainy and bland overall. The pour is a bright golden amber with a fluffy sticky off white head. The nose is grainy, light caramel malts, cereal malts and a mild hop. Really not much going on, but a nice mild and bland malty brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass with a touch of citrus. Taste is a sharp grassy hop bitterness with an underlying caramel malty sweetness and a hint of citrus bitterness in the finish. A decent red ale, but something just isn’t quite right, but cannot put a finger on it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
10/3/12. 12oz bottle. Light red/amber pour with a small khaki head. The aroma shows a ton of oxidation, wet cardboard, hints of mintiness, as well as touches of sweet, burnt caramel. Oxidized flavor as well with bits of mint, sweet caramel, and a bit of chocolate. Methinks this is an old bottle.
