2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
There really isn’t much to this beer. It is very cloudy orange brown with a small, white head. It smells like almost nothing, maybe a bit of nutty malt. There is a bit of sweetness and some floral hops once you taste it at least. It is medium bodied with mild carbonation but still come off as a bit watery in the finish due to lack of flavor. I will give this mild credit for being relatively free from off flavors but that’s about it.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Schmohz makes some pretty bad beers, but this is a surprisingly solid pale ale. Balanced with medium hops. If you have to drink a Schmohz, I’d strongly recommend this one.

WTF. Amber pour and carbonation crazy, taking 5 minutes just to pour the damn beer. Just sweet malt aroma. Taste is sweet malt hint of caramel and.... nope, no hops. Crazy carbonation and thin body. Pail ale? Book.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Darker amber brew with one finger of steady off white head. Good head retention. Mild aroma of grass and a little earth. Taste is mild - a little malt at the start with a little grass in the finish. Taste nice but rather one dimensional and also rather weak. MIght be nice on hot summer day.

Bottle from my ulty buddy - thanks, Steve! Pretty watery amber pour, with a thin foamy head. Faded hops and slightly acrid notes in the nose. Sweet but artificial tasting malt notes clash with the slightly bitter hops. Pretty icky example of the style.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber color with thin white head. Hoppy aroma but taste is astringent and finish is very sharp and not pleasant.

Hardly a hop to be found, this was mostly malt. Taking beer styles back to the beginning of the current craft beer cycle 10 years ago. A bit of colour to the body. Drinkable. Average mouthfeel with a tad aggressive carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber color with a sticky fluffy off white head. Light floral nose with some grapefruit notes. Nice grapefruit and apricot hop flavors with a strong enough malt backbone. Long citrus hop finish. This is a decent pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of a funky combination of caramel, orange, and light lemon. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger orange-tinged off-white head that leaves behind some nice webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with oranges and caramel. The finish has lemon grass and light grapefruit. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, I don’t like the lemon grass flavors.
