Pours a very dark chocolate brown. Nice bountiful malty aroma. Flavor is fairly malty, not too full bodied.Pales on the mouthfeel. Definitely needs more. Light on the aftertaste. a little too thin.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer pours dark amber color with a well retained off white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a little caramel and light roasted peanuts. Flavor is also sweet malt, but is too thin and the finish just basically dies. The flavor starts out then just vanishes. This beer has potential but needs more bigger flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer emigrates from the 12-ounce brown bottle a somewhat hazy brown with a portly light tan head that is semi-creamy in texture as it fades away; the lace forms a concealing blanket upon the glass. Nose is malt with light caramel tones, fresh and somewhat tobacco like, start is lightly sweet and the malt profile light to moderate with the top light in its feel. Finish is mildly acidic, the hops benign in their spiciness, somewhat sour aftertaste is also dry, a drinkable beer, but not a real hit with me.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Notches on the side of label says it was bottled Jan 02. hmmm.
New to AZ, would they be shipping old stock here?.
Pours reddish brown, with a fizzy, short lived tannish head. no lacing.
Funky sour dirty sock aroma, I almost poured down the drain because of it.
flavor was better than the aroma, roasty, nutty, caramel.
Body was kind of thin
tiny bit of hops noted in the short finish.
Probably wouldn’t buy again.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle-pours a crimson amber hue with a small white head. aroma of carmel, toffee, and honey roasted cashews. The flavors were terrible-wet carboard and sourness. tastes like the malts and hops were old when this beer was brewed. body was thin and flimsy like most ska beers. probably the worst beer i have had from this brewery. Squidget must have got a good bottle of this (fresh?)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled on Date of January 2, but I am pretty sure this is a mistake as this beer does not taste like a three year old beer, in fact it is far to light to have lasted this well.
This beer pours a clear ruby amber color with a light brown head. The aroma is malty with roasted notes, biscuits, caramel and even perhaps a hint of cherry fruitiness. The body of this beer is light, actually a bit lighter than I was expecting. The taste is a mix of malty sweetness, lightly roasted barley notes, and a cherry like fruitiness. There is certainly nothing wrong with this beer, and it does have a nice mix of fresh flavors, but it is a bit thin and it is missing a little something.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
in the bottle. looks like a coca-cola. not much a head, what’s there has big bubbles and dies quickly. Aroma of diacyl. finishes with a little bit of a tongue bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overbearing chalky flavor. This style of beer seems to consistently for people who want to drink a beer of style and distinction, but don’t have the tastebuds for it.
