3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish brown into pint glass. Has faint aromas of honey, brown sugar and molasses. Nutty taste of almonds, wheat and honey. A slight dry smokiness in the finish. Nice finish on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mid aroma of malted grain, cereal, hazelnuts, and caramel. The mouthfeel is on the thin side, with moderate but adequate carbonation, making for a very sessionable drink. The taste mostly follows the aroma notes, for a nutty, caramely sweet with a slight grainy bitterness to it. The finish is clean and gently dry. Straightforward, simple, unexciting, but it gets the job done and goes quickly.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
"Light caramel and nuts in both the aroma and flavor, but both aspects are fairly weak, with the added benefit of a watery thin feel. Not offensive, but not real good either."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer #3 of NM 100. On tap at Gecko's. Hazelnutty. Too syrupy and sweet. Finishes dryer though.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown, with a medium light khaki head that quickly fades, leaving fair lacing. Nose is medium roast malt. Taste is mild malt, with an odd iced-tea-like flavor. Very short finish. Moderate carbonation. OK for a session beer, nothing special.

Deep brown pour. No head. Toast, nutty, roast and burnt sugar aroma. Medium body. Enough carbonation. Flavor is balanced. Burnt toast. Bready. Mild to no hops. What hoppiness there is seems to be earthy medium dry finish. Mild bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had this on tap. It has a pretty nice malt flavor, although understated, and it is very under-hopped, so it lacks anything to distinguish it. It is a golden brown color with a nice head.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Medium dark amber/brown color, sweet malty nose, sweet malty flavor compromised by chemical notes, astringency. Probably not the best introduction I could have to this particular brewery.

Cannot get any of Santa Fe’s brews around here but we got lucky and got this 1 bottle. Love this brewery, visited it in the fall of 2012, great time.
