3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to DrDavid for this one! He picked it up for me at the brewery.
22oz brown glass pry-top. Sticker on bottom says "Sep 08."
Appearance: Amber brown with cascading puddy-colored bubbles and 2 fingers of off-white head. Recedes quickly leaving spotty lacing.
Nose: Sweet malt and a little mustiness. Some muted biscuity notes, almost like dry scones, and a high note of a dried dark fruit.
Palate: Medium-bodied and so-weet. Slick mouthfeel and little carbonation. Flavors of lightly toasted wood, biscuit, malted grains, dry earth, and some "fruity" characters from the yeast presumably. The hops are very subtle and in a supporting role only (the way it often is with this style), mainly there to give the beer some edges.
Notes: A solid American interpretation of an English Stock Ale. Not too fruity, not too light in the body, not too sweet, carbonation just right, edges defined without being sharp or flabby. A well made, sessionable and table-worthy beer.

Bottle. Malty caramel aroma, slightly sweet. Hazy amber body, small off-white head. Flavor is wonderful for the style. Lots of malt, touch of sweetness, caramel, and loads of nuts. Nuttiness continues through the finish. Smooth and very sessionable. Terrific.

Nice, hoppy, beautiful-to-look-at pale ale; not terribly distinctive in the flavor department, but goes down well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber: Pours copper/amber with a thin white head. Smells of yogurt, malt. Taste is tangy with elements of yogurt, cherries, some mild hoppy notes and a peppery finish. I don’t know what the hell this is trying to be so it must be a Rock Art brew.

Clear caramel amber pour with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of alcohol and spices. Decent flavor of caramel, alcohol and spices. The body has a light to medium thickness with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Unremarkable.
