1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Pours nearly flat, hazy orange brown. Aroma is malt and caramel. There’s virtually no carbonation in this beer. I opened up another bottle just to make sure it wasn’t a bad cap. Minimal carbonation in the other beer too. The flavor is malty and not horrible, but the lack of carbonation is a bit of a turn off.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber with medium head. Very drinkable, medium bodied brown ale with light roast, a little chocolate and nuts, and an assertive balancing bitterness. Not going to blow you away with flavor, but it’s not meant to. Just a nice session brown and I’d have no problem throwing a few back. Cheers to Red Hook for this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Type: 22-oz. bomber
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: Del Mission Liquor in Hillcrest (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: April 25, 2013
Consumed: April 25, 2013
Poured a mahogany brown color with two fingers of khaki tan head. Decent amount of sporadic and uneven layered lacing on the sides. Good retention all the way down.
Smelled roasted caramel notes first. Also nuts, toast, toffee and faint bitter chocolate notes. Had me wanting to come back for more.
Not as much flavor in the taste like the nose. Roasty caramel, toffee, chocolate milk and nuts with bitterness hanging on the tongue after.
Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter, but still smooth finish.
This beer had its moments, but it was missing something. A bit more flavor I would have rated it higher than a 3.5 (which may have a bit generous).

Bottle. Dirty brown mid water with almost no head. Some hint of caramel and light yeast. Not a bad beer. Nice change of pace for spring.

Could not be more pedestrian if it sprouted legs and picked up a a walking cane. Slightly toasted nutty malt body with some root character and earthyness. Screams "hey everybody! lets all play solitaire in the corner by ourselves! maybe that will be less boring than drinking a dozen of me’s!" Meh-Squared.

very neutral taste, not much distinctive about this... perhaps slightly Smokey and slightly bitter...that’s it

Bottle. Pours clear reddish/copper with a thin beige head. Aromas of nutty malt, caramel, dough, and wet hay. The flavor is slightly sweet grass and caramel, a touch of bitter grass and hay, and some berry/prune in the aftertaste. Moderate carbonation. Blah.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark - only a little amber shows. The head has large bubbles and is off-white. Aroma is of chocolate malt or chocolate itself. The the taste is just slightly bitter and astringent with hints of chocolate with hops. There’s a spiciness that may be from the hops used here. The palate is surprisingly light for the aroma and taste of this beer. Some bitterness to the finish with plenty of carbonation on the tongue. Interesting beer to taste.
