2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark golden color with white head. I expected it to be more red. Nice lacing. Smell was unpleasant metalic aroma. Taste included very sweet malts with almost no hops. A funny aftertaste...kind of like rusty metal.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light amber color, average head that disappears quickly. Flavor was oh so slightly sweet that balances on almost just right and almost too much. Aroma was caramel, malty and light and watery.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine and Spirits - Kerry Forest - 12 oz bottle. Very light copper translucent pout with absolutely no head. Aroma has a hint of hard candy sweetness and some fresh lake water. Flavor is rather bland and uneventful. Some light caramel accents, very brief citrus bitterness and some root beer hard candy notes. Mouthfeel is slightly metallic. Drinkable, but unremarkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear marzen color, thin white head, OK label, twistoff longneck. Slightly sweet, lightly toasted, syrupy aroma. Tastes like a Vienna or a Marzen. Sweetish, woody, a little perfumy, a little toasty. Slight sour astringency on a medium body. Gets a little fizzy sometimes. Cane syrup flavors on the lips. Better than I expected, not great. ABC Liquors, Kerry Forest Parkway.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is malty and sweet with a touch of hops. The appearance is light amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is a middle of the road amber with no major flaws however I feel stupid for looking in the bottle for a password.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Meijer’s in Sandusky, Ohio. Pours deep caramel toward burnt sienna with off-khaki head. Nose is caramel malt, viennaish. Tastes very caramelly, with notes of mild hops and earthy nuttiness. Nothing exciting here, but nothing terribly offensive either.
