2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Free on tap at Colgate University party (which was a bonus). Downright epic when you compare it to the other tap at the party (keystone) but doesnt measure up to a lot of comparables in the region (Otter creek, dogfish head, harpoon, all better). Pretty malty, needs more hops. Ill drink again though (especially for free).

Pours golden amber. Decent head with a nice lace. Taste of metallic shrimp crackers? I don’t get it...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A fairly balanced ale overall. Maltiness is there at first, with some sweetness. Hints of hops in the finish. Not bad overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle in a shaker. The second of the variety pack. So far, I am not too impressed. Clear amber pour with minimal white head. Mild sweet aroma, maybe caramel. Malty flavor with a quick follow of hops, but neither flavor is well developed. Very flat. Again, not bad for the price, but would rather spend a little extra for some more flavor.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from a mix 12 pack from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear, light amber brown with a small, light tan, frothy head. The nose is light but has notes of caramel, toasted malt, and a slight whiff of hops. The flavor starts with stale bittering hops, moves to an off metallic note, and has a slightly fruity finish. Light in body with average carbonation leading to a medium, just bitter finish. Not very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Pours a clear amber-copper color with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head has okay retention, reducing down to a thin layer, leaving behind some lacing on the glass.
S - Aroma is of sweet roasted caramel malts with some other sweet dark fruits mixing in. Only a touch of hops in the background.
T - Starts off with some roasted toffee malts and some bread flavor. Lots of caramel and a bit of dark fruit sweetness. Through the middle some deeper malt flavor and some more bread flavors comes through. The finish has a mix of the caramel sweet malts and some bread flavor that lingers for a while.
M - Medium to medium-light bodied with a moderate light carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel overall, finish is sweet and a touch dry, but fairly refreshing.
D - Pretty drinkable. Overall, well balanced and fairly smooth. Could use a bit more flavor through the middle, but otherwise some nice balanced flavors.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color (obviously) with a white head. Caramel malt and sprucy citrusy hoppy aroma. Pretty medium sweet flavor with a light bitterness. Not terribly complex but a pleasant taste. A light sourness.
