2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body
is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie, husks), lightly hoppy (apricot), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with a note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet,
lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Just plain bad.

Dark brown/bronze. Light head. Hops remind me of AlleyKat in Edmonton. Very light malt and weak finish.

Sweet hoppy aroma copper colored and lightly carbonated. Has nice caramel with the hops slightly bitter all the way through to the finish. I didn't think the finish was sweet at all. Pretty conventional but well made and worth a try.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 Rerated: had this one bottled. Somewhat dry in the finish, wheaty and hoppy taste, thick head but practically no nose to speak of. I liked it better than the Lager.

Dark gold or light orange, off-white head. Cabbage in the nose, which is a little off-putting. But - it has an appealing cinnamon, french toast thing going on in the flavorand a bready , thivk finish. More complex than the more common Boston Lager.

A fairly good ale from Boston Beer. It had a certain tang to it, lots of fruitness also. Not something I'd drink everyday, but fine
for certain occasions.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Little to no head, amber body. Aroma of hops and a cinnamon/spice touch. Very nice spicy hop flavor and a dry, somewhat bitter finish. I am very impressed by this brew, and it will become a regular in my fridge for everyday drinking.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks nice, with a full head and a red body. Smells like a lager with a hint a sweetness, but a bit malty. A mostly uninteresting, unoriginal beer. Smooth, but tastes like nothing in particular really.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 On draught at the Uno near Tuttle Mall in Dublin, OH as Uno Amber. Came in an unfrosted glass which was a nice surprise. Pours a deep amber color with a medium thick light beige head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt. On the lighter side body-wise with a malty and earthy flavor. Finish is lightly hopped and just a tiny bit metallic. A lot better than I was expecting but not something I wish I could take home or anything.

Nice aroma and fine color, decent albeit short-lived head . Perfect bitterness, probably the best non-English English Pale Ale I have had.

Not a bad ale, but quite uneventful. Copper, with nice head, decent lacing - slight hops and malts - minor sweetness - easy drinking, with a subtle yeastiness. Not bad, I guess.
