1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Really not my thing. As others have mentioned, there were a lot of off flavors. The nose is some caramel malt and light floral hops. The beer is light amber with and off white head. The taste was bland marked only by floral hops and off flavors of mold/shunk and a distinctive metallic taste which I have alsocnoticed in their ESB at times. The off flavors destroy any smooth characteristics which may have existed in the beer.

Floral malt aromas. Skunky mouldy flavour. Some metallic aftertaste, sadly.

Tasted on 7/25/12 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at The Turnip Truck. Pours clear copper orange with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to thin lacing. The nose is malty caramel and a touch of bread, with some herbal and citrus hops. The flavor is lightly sweet caramel and bread, the same from the nose, with some nicely bitter citrus hops. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium malty and lightly hoppy finish.

Very mediocre effort, thin taste, not much to it, but bitter aftertaste. Killian’s red, possibly worse.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is malty with a bit of citrus. Appearance is copper, hazy, small tan head. Taste is malt forward, then grainy, then a bit of bitterness and alcohol hotness. Maybe some banana. Palate is medium. Bitterness and malt that dont go well together linger. Overall I do not like this beer. Goes from cloying, to off bitterness. Its is almost not drinkable IMO.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of noble hops and caramel. This beer pours a golden amber with a thick off-white head. The taste is caramel sweet to start with just enough hops to make the finish clean. Great session ale.
