3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Mostly clear, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is a tropical and citrus fruit medley – pineapple, mango and grapefruit are front-and-center here. Full-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Caramel and toffee malts are rich and flavorful, but they take a back seat to a bounty of fruity, juicy, bitter hops. Finishes grapefruity, bitter, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of BgThang!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Petrol Station in Houston (as Endeavour). Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Medium to full body with flavors of resinous hops, grainy malt and fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a crystal clear light orange body and an aggressively large, tight bubbled, bone hued off-white head. Staying power is good as is the lacing. Aromas of orange, citrus, light butterscotch (uh-oh), bready, a touch of rotten fruit, lightly herbal, some pine notes. Some caramel and bready hints. No alcohol. Clean fermentation. Flavors are on the sweeter side of things (surprisingly nearly a neutral balance!), tea, citrus, some bitterness. Caramel, orange, grapefruit. Very easy drinking, not rough in anyway (by aggressive cohumulone, alcohol or otherwise). I wish it were a bit fresher, but at only 2 and change months old, I am not sure how much better it would be fresh (I have been a touch generous). Creamy, smooth, not harsh in anyway, a touch warming. A hint of vegital hop matter in the finish. Medium bubbles, decently dry. Good beer overall.

Draught at The Chimes, Baton Rouge, LA as Saint Arnold Endeavour.

Sweet hops, strawberries... very sweet aroma.
Very sweet and bitter hops. Strong bitterness in the flavour. Bitterness stays. Soft carbonation. Warms a lot!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to Kevin for hooking me up with this! Pours a clear deep amber orange with a light tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a really nice grapefruit note with a bit of growing pine and a caramel/toffee backing. Flavor has a good amount more of backing sweet grains with some pine hops and just a hint of grapefruit.
