2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle - part of their "Family Reunion" six pack. Pours a medium copper, thin white head. Pretty much a neutral aroma, brief hints of cardboard. Flavor has some brief caramel accents, a hint of spent grain, just a trace of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough for the style. Decent, just slightly bland.

Dark clear amber color, medium head that did not last but left decent lacing. Not much of an aroma. Sour, corn. Carbonated and rather thin body. Not very Pleasant. Average at Best. Pass It.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An orange bronze apearance with some light white lacing. Fresh aroma of fruit, hop, malt and sugar. A little summery/Carribean like. I enjoy it. Could be one of my favorite sessions.

For a beer the calls itself a reserve it has reserved the flavor for another beer. One day I hope to taste that beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, biscuit, light honey, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good robustness and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavor; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate amount of dryness after the finish from bitterness. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a good hoppy pale lager style. All around good robustness and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

The taste is syrupy and unpleasant to me. Really just like a basic boring bad beer. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with medium retention recedes leaving gloppy sheets. Stale beer mung aromas. Dry and fruity with sour malt and wet earth.
