3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 750 ml ceramic bottle from Central Market, 9/18/13
Aroma: The aroma is bready malts, some fruity notes, spice, and some cooked veggies
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden color with a small, fizzy white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much t he same, bready, a little sweet, mild bitterness, and light vegetation
Palate: The body is fairly light, it is pretty fizzy on the mouth, and it finishes lightly dry
First off, I love this bottle. Great design, and just great in general. If I lived here I would save this one for brewing for sure. As for the beer, it is only okay. I mean it feels like they did a solid job here, but. It just isn’t really all that exciting of a beer. This one is plenty worth trying I would say.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ceramic, swing-top bottle. Once out of the beautiful bottle, this looks liek a standard pour. Slightly hazy amber, nothing but a thin head. This drinks liek a well-made, unoffensive, and technically perfect, but lackluster light ale. Smooth, without impression either good or bad. Hey, ’clean’ is a great compliment in brewing. Is this really 7.6%!? You’d never know. Danger, Will Robinson. (#5044, 5/30/2013)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright orange in color with a bright white head, this is a pretty darned good Biere de Garde. Smooth and soft in the nose, it’s earthy and sweet... but gently so. It’s full in the mouth, with a neat woody, barnyardy flavor that’s sweet and really enjoyable. Smooth, soft, and nice!
