3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slighty hazy dark orange with a mild off-white head that dissipates quickly, but there is nice lacing--thank god. Aroma is a woodsy, buttery one. malt, malt, and more malt which disappears almost immediately. This beer is very smooth, but rather one-dimensional. The palate is pretty watery. I think this beer is quite overrated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber brown color with minimal white head. Aroma is apricots, caramel and hay. Flavor is sweet malt with bracing hops, but a little unbalanced. Lingering bitter, metallic finish. Nice medium body with little carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet beer. Really malty probably too much. Could use more hops to balance.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found the malt character of this beer to be too pronounced. There is hop bite at the end, but the hop and malt flavors never coincide. I thought this beer was interesting at first but the more I've had of it the less enjoyable it gets.

Sweet fruity flavors. Not as hoppy as I was expecting, but good none the less.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden brown color. Not much aroma. Small tan head. Not too much flavor going on in this one. A mild hopping with a musty malt flavor. Really kind of boring and uneventful. I was expecting more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber in color, light tan small bubbly half inch thick head. Very appealing to look at. Smells of light floral hops and yeast. Start and middle are a little bit empty, but ohh the finish is so nice. Good fair amount of hops with a nice dry hop bite. Sip or drink it slow, its quite smooth with a nice hop bite. Drink it fast and watch out, the hop bite bites. Has a light body feel and leaves a dry hop tang in mouth and tongue.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught. Appearance: hazy, honey colored w/ a medium white head. It has a malty taste up front w/ a bit of a funky tart finish. Maybe grapefruit or lemon? unique, to be sure
