3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a cloudy orangish amber with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts and piney hops. Taste had both malt and hop (piney) on the front side with a moderate hop bitterness finish. Palate was pretty good - good dense viscosity. Overall a nice amber in the vein of Sam Adams Boston lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan. Foamy, soapy off-white head. Pretty unimpressive beer. Some biting dry bitterness, not really that enjoyable...leads into a grainy thin malt bill, woody thin amber malt tones. The one-d bitterness is the only thing it has going for it, the malt tones aren’t that enjoyable. Not horrendous, not off, just not so good either.

Tap at mozza mia. Dark gold with small white head. Sweet grain aroma. Taste is malty and sweet. Stale taste late. Not too good. Forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a murky amber gold with a decent beige head. The nose is slightly floral with a little malt. Taste is sweet at first then the hoppy bitter kicks in and lingers through the finish. Reminds me more of an APA. But I like it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours a clear amber with a light tan head that lasts through the beer and laces. Aroma has lots of sweet grains with a touch of grass and citrus underlying. Flavor is more of a combination of grass and earthy/sweet grains with a touch of citrus backing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Bulldog in MSP. A dark amber, purely American look with a sudsy type. This is an altogether malty beer with a rich, kinda sugary kick. (#5668, 8/28/2014)

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light chestnut amber with pale brief head; cloudy is not quite the word - this had small visible particles suspended throughout. Aroma slightly sweet, floral, yeast, and a hint of tropical fruit. Flavor starts slightly malty, a moment of hops, everything starts to recede, then finishing bloom of hops. Palate is a bit creamy, but mostly crisp an clean. Nice amber.

bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Hazy medium amber with a 1/2" beige head, splotches of lace. Taste is malt with light toast and yeast. It moves cleanly to a lightly bittered finish. Their flagship beer is serviceable, but not particularly notable.
