Tap sample @Camba Tap House, München 02/2014, thanks motelpogo. Quite thin rendition of a UK style IPA, heavier on tangerine zest hops than aromatic biscuit malts. Did not pick up on any specific character else, fairly tired mf.

on tap at the local taphouse in munich. golden with a steady white head; lemon sorbet aroma; surprisingly low in flavour, only modest bitterness, lurking chewy caramel. perhaps it had lost a fair bit of character on the journey to munich. or maybe i was just already a bit put out because the first 3 beers i ordered at the bar were all unavailable

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I was excited to try this beer. Pours a gold-color, with white head. Taste is subtle and lighter than most IPAs, with a muddled flavor profile. It reminds me of a pale ale Sam Adams would make. There are definitely much better options in this category. I’d skip it.

I don’t think I have ever had a Saint Arnold that I ever liked. And this keeps up with that tradition. Copper hue. Malty more so than hoppy. Bitter aftertaste. This is far from an IPA. It has more of a lager sensibility. It seems like a brewery long buoyed by hype. This along with their Pumpkinator are just that, HYPE! Skip this and grab a Karbach.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits into a Myrcenary pint glass. Golden orange, pretty clear, light sediment and a white head with light lacing. Mild aroma of bready malts, floral notes, biscuits, nuts and light citrus hops. Malty flavor with mild bitterness. Average body, a little thin and watery, with a crisp feel. Not too good, tastes a little old and musty.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 12oz bottle from Proof bottle shop. Medium copper pour with a small off-white head and light lacing. Aroma is floral and spiced hops. Tastes are sweet malt, bread, grass, citrus. Grainy in the moderately bitter finish. Ok.
