3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Spicy, herbal nose, a bit f yeast and tropical fruit. Dark gold straw color, with fat-bubbled lace. Herbal, hoppy flavors, some light malt, bit of citrus, and a dryish bitter finish. Thin-medium body, and feels a bit heavier than it should for the style. Very pleasant session stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: total letdown since this brewery comes out with good stuff most of the time. Overly grainy and much like an imperial lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a clear thinner gold body with an average sized soapy bright white head. Aroma of old wet toast, old caramel, molassess, raisins and white grape juice. Medium to fuller body, milky, soft to average carbonation. Flavor is blah, notes of dough, nuts, raisin, grapes, old caramel and molasses. Not a fan.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Antenna America. Aroma is pine and citrus, lightly fruity. Bit of a stinky bite. Taste is nice and refreshing but think this is getting a first beer boost in my scores. Feels a bit inconsequential. Nice enough though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught pour from Martin’s West in Redwood City, CA. Mild golden amber with a foamy white head (very frothy). Aroma is orange bitters, biscuits, hay. Taste is cereal, bitter peels. Didn’t hate it but didn’t really savor it either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brewed on 05/28/14. Nose is slick and densely fruity, not vibrant but it’s there, soapy with jam and light mineral, some vinous and Smartie (candy) character. Dark, dull copper with lighter golden highlights, but sort of burnished and ugly, still transparent with avg carb and a sudsy off-white head. Taste is dry and heavy with alcohol, lots of hop oil and some juice (but not sweet); bitterness is fairly low, very soapy and cleansing, very heavy full body that’s closer to flat than effervescent. Clean but not pulling me in for another.
