2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub Great copper color with no head or lacing. Very light aroma, nothing discernible. Flavor of roasted malts and something weird that I couldnít figure out and it bothered me throughout the whole beer. Nothing special here at all.

Draft. This beer was pretty good, but I couldnít really tell what the flavor was. It had a sweet malty flavor and a grape-like aftertaste. Kind of a strange brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
At brewpub. Dark red, with some hints of brown. Flavor was of sweet malt and grape. Good palate, but would have liked more hops. In fact would have liked any presence of hops. Liked it less the more I drank it.

I want to say more about this beer...but Iím not sure there is much to say. Dark amber, small head from a bad pour. Malt aroma and flavour balanced out by a mild hop flavour. Good session, but not exciting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Richmond Beer and Wine Festival 2000 or 2001. Amber color, decent head. Smooth, malt characteristic balanced well with hops. Somewhat crisp. Kept going back to this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A rather dark amber; Iíd say more like dark brown. Roast malt dominates this beer. Not much hop presence. Smooth and easy drinking, but nothing really leapt out. Respectable, but short on excitement. On tap at the brewpub, Charlottesville.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium copper, small head. Smells and tastes malty and rich- smoked and burned, with not a bad flavor, and actually above average, but nothing extraordinary.

satan's pony may be a "workhorse" at the south street bar, but don't overload this fragile waif with expectations of solid character, 'cause it'll buckle. color is well told by it's name, and very little head survives the initial excitement of the pour. aroma of a fairly clean refrigerator: plastic, soap, maybe some damp greens and vague peachy grain; in short: mostly fresh and chilled updrafts reach the nose, but it's not abundantly aromatic. soft carbonation, and, as they say: "perfect balance of malt, hop, and roasted flavors". naturally that means balanced at the low end. papery bitterness, thin, watery. not bad, merely mediocre.
