The beer pours a translucent red with gold hues and a generous light tan coloured head. The aroma is caramel, burnt wood, and floral hops. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is burnt caramel, metallic tones, and an almost artificial sweetness.

Look, I’ll admit that I bought this pretty much entirely for the novelty. It was relatively cheap, and I love Star Trek, so I figured why not? The pour is a nice surprise: Ruddy amber body: appears crisp and clear. One and a half finger almond meat head dissipates eventually down to just a couple of cm, all the while leaving wonderful lacing down the edges. Nose is wonderfully caramel rich, some biscuits and some spicy... something? Can’t quite put my finger on it. Definitely driven by the toasted caramel and biscuits. The pleasant surprise continues Starts out more green than expected based on style and aroma, but considering the blood of its namesake.. Sweet toffee and caramel greet the crisp... green-ness (almost kind of vinous, maybe somewhat leafy?), dominating most of the malt profile, which is the driving force in this brew. There’s some biscuit stuffiness, but it’s definitely sweeter than most red ale’s I’ve had (admittedly not that many). Fairly crisp, and a bit of leafy hops continue through the finish. The stale-type biscuit malts are present, but the sweet greens and toffee really drive this thing.

330ml Bottle - Not bad. Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Very malt forward brew. Easy drinking, this was a decent beer.

An enjoyable beer. Solid malt notes. The Irish ale aspect comes in towards the back end, with a wee bit of kick. But this one is probably mislabeled style wise. It’s more of a solid German-like malty beer.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has some sweet bread elements and just a bit of caramel to it. Taste is a bit sweet and very malty, with some doughy caramel coming through. Quite creamy, actually.

Prufrockstar (1128) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. Copper pour, white head. Floral, perfume, pepper. Caramel, citrus. Sweet, some spice. Not bad. Not something I could see Spock enjoying, though. Do Vulcans take pleasure in food/drink?

can. pours hazy dark ruby with a small light beige-orange head, some retention and lacing. sweet fruity malts - strawberry and kiwi-like (!), sweetish nuts, toasted munich and caramel, some sweetness - plain brown sugar and caramel, pepper, touch of dirt and metal, hint of fusel and garbage. moderate carboantion, light body - oily, semi-sweet grassy-spicy-piney-peppery-mineral-metallic finish. blah.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a lasting offwhite head. Aroma is hoppy, some floral spice. Taste is slightly bitter, some floral hoppiness, with a caramel malt undertone. Warming mouthfeel; finish is a floral hoppiness. "Suprisingly good", to quote a pointy eared fellow...

cmacklin (304) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a reddish amber colour with a large, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of malt, caramel and light fruit. Sweet caramel malty flavour with a slightly dry, hoppy, bitter finish. Light body, watery to slightly oily texture and average carbonation. My expectations were pretty low after looking at the label but I was pleasantly surprised.
