2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at CAH. Pours a mostly translucent amber with golden notes and a medium foamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of malty sweet grains, hints of candy cherry and pretty standard lager notes. Flavor was kind of the same, cherry was light and a little more tart than sweet. Some caramel and grainy malts in flavor. Not so great.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, looks interesting, amber-red, doesn’t smell much like cherries to me. It tastes like a decent amber ale to me but I really cannot taste the cherries, I guess there is a slight sweetness but no real definitive cherry flavor. overall easy to drink but odd.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The docile nose is mildly tangy with a dab of chocolate and maybe cherry – maybe not. Medium-bodied with a tannic mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Perfectly balanced. Definitely more cherry in the flavor than the aroma. Sweet, medium-roast malts offset nicely by mineral bitterness. Crisp, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of scraff!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours brown/amber. Smells of chocolate, sugar and a faint hit of melted cherries. Malty taste, nothing really special about it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
20081130 12oz bottle from RB Spirits. Deep caramel color with small but lasting white head. That’s where the party ends. Aroma of alcohol and malt, some DMS, and hints of play-doh, with perhaps a distant fruity note and then a stronger grenadine aroma emerging with temp. Full bodied and coating with husky graininess and dry grass flavors late. Finish is quick but sweet with more cereal graininess. No fruit flavors noticed without serious concentration.
