1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted 1/1/09. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a deep dark ruby hue. Moldy layer of off-white head. Aromas of cola, citrus and a lotta spices. Light to medium bodied with a fizzy, fruity soda flavor. Fruity Pebbles. Odd carbonation and bitterness. This is a mess...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber with a small-to-medium, very light-brown head that is mostly diminishing. Really strong peach aroma, more similar to canned peaches than fresh - actually a really pleasant aroma. Flavor has a bit of grassy, herbally hops up front, mildly bitter and mildly sweet. Peaches take a definite back seat. Finish has notes of toffee, roasted nuts and stale bread. Expected more fruitiness in the flavor after the rather huge aroma. Still, a decently fun beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked this up at Wise Guys in Merrillville, Indiana. Nice look to it, a clear reddish chestnut body - artificially colored, according to the label - and a creamy, pale beige head. It had an aroma of overly ripe peaches - the mushy type that you accidentally poke your finger into. The flavor is peach candy with a nutty bitterness that does not taste like pecans. Oh dear.

Pour is darker than I expected. A good auburn-brown. Aroma is very nice. Flurry of cranberries and spice. Flavor is very nice as well. Much cranberry flavor is very present. Little ginger, clove, allspice, etc. Good stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, with Tommy at his Winter Six Pack tasting. Dark amber, tan head. Peachy nose, in a way that makes me think of peach flavored bubblegum. A bit of maple syrup. Touch of toasty malt in the flavor, fruity in a slightly odd way, honey. Overall, not a train wreck, which was kind of what I was expecting. Not quite natural tasting either, but I enjoyed it. In a slightly regressive sort of way.
