2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has a soft hoppy aroma with a pale malty appearance. Light somewhat musty flavor with a sweeter aftertaste. The hops taste like they spent a few months on a cargo ship in the Pacific. If this were governed by US laws, the Better Business Bureau would have them remove the word "Stout" from the label. I’d say it’s better than most American macros, but not by much.

Deep gold color. Fat and frothy head. Malt and slight floral aroma. O.K. lace. light malt and hop taste. Not too watery. Better than I surmised.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
a dortmunder all right, so marks for getting within a discernible style at least. apart from the fact that it gets it’s own exciting category at ratbier, there isn’t to much to say about this stuff. light, but syruppy mouthfeel. at first it’s really dry, then leaves behind an unclean cheesy bitterness. prefer suntory malt’s for a japanese dortmunder.

Light gold color. This beer has a malty aroma, finish was so bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Interesting orange color, and a fairly decent flavor, nice malt tones. However -this is nowhere near the best beer of this type that I have had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale Golden Color with medium thick head. Fairly strong malt aroma with very slight hoppy bitter undertones. Slightly sweet malt flavor. This is a good beer but why they call it a stout draft is beyond me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium straw color, medium head. A medium bodied draft style lager. Nicely malty with a nice hop bite. Clean and crisp taste. Light taste but with some flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and round. Finish is crisp and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer. I don’t mean to go on a rant here, but STOUT DRAFT is confusing!!
