2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at McDougal’s. Very pale, orange color. Sweet honey-caramel aroma with some flowery tones. The honey is present in the initial flavor but it dulls to a faint hoppy finish. Average carbonation and light in body. Average at best.

Another drink @ Kimo’s that was stale and oxidized. Sickly sweet caramel malt backbone with stewed leaf notes. Light resin with a grainy finish.

Gorgeous red-amber with a nice head. Amazing bouquet of honey, fruit, and malts. Wonderful fruity flavor with some fruit punch-like notes. Rather unique with a sweet ESB flavor profile. Defies easy categorization.

Pours a dark amber color. Aromas of hops, caramel, and a hint of citrus. Flavor is malty with a touch of nuts and chocolate finished with some mild hop action.

Red copper colored with lively carbonation. No lace and a light head. Slight honey in the nose with fresh wort aromas. Caramel and fruity hops. The flavor is mostly of caramel malts and honey. Orange citrus. Finish is a touch earthy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Brewery. This beer was a very reddish amber with not a lot of head. Super sweet aroma, and a pretty sweet flavor as well. Not as much hops as I have come to expect in an amber, but I should have known as the instore descripter put it down as 13 IBU’s. Good but not Great.

Sampled draught at R.F.McDougall’s in Richland, WA
Clear red, light head, some lacing. Nose of light caramel and hazelnut. Some tangy malts and light hops. Flavor of light hops and some malts, eh, kinda boring but more body than the pale.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper-red colour. Fresh pale and crystal malt aroma. Sadly a much blander palate. Sweet and vaguely caramelly with minimal other malt or hop character.

Faint aroma, tad citrus. Bubbly but creamy palate. Suddle nuttiness, espically in the finish. Sweet, kinda hoppy but not really.
