UPDATED: OCT 23, 2006 2006-10-23, 6-3-7-3-14=33
Amber color. Some malt aroma. Malt and caramel flavor, with a light but nice hoppy touch, and a reasonable ending bitterness.
Golden to amber color. Some fudge aroma, light caramel and paper. The flavor is lacking of malt and hop, but the body is quite strong and the bitterness high.

Bottled. Brownish amber, brief head. Light citrusy nose with a hint of metal. Dry with clean, hard, primitive malt character. Some toffee and oranges. Grassy, salty finish with medium bitterness. Nice flavourwise, but the mouthfeel is fizzy and harsh.

Amber-orange hue. Light- to medium-bodied. Little nip of noticeable alcohol. Grainy malts with very little sweetness. Notes of toasted bread and burnt caramel. Spicy, tea-like hops, with elements of bitter flowers. Other notes of metal, pear, lemon grass and light tobacco. Piques the curiosity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cream, two-fingered head, fades quickly and leaves some lace. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Clear amber color. Citrusy nose. Starts with a mix of hops and malt, faint sweetness in the background and finishes without an overpowering amount of hops like some pales can be. 83¢ for a 12oz bottle from Cumberland Convenience Greenland, NH.
