3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a rich, hazy orange-gold with a high, fine-grained head that leaves lace. The nose is toffee, fruit, violets, and toasted grain. Very crisp on the tongue with a bright, almost citrusy acidity; finishes long and clean, with enough hops to keep it honest. Perfect for a cool-off after an evening at a still, humid baseball game.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a slightly hazy amber color with a thin white head. Aroma has lots of honey and apples with some pale malts. Taste has lots of honey as well. Some syrupy flavors with grains and malts. Maybe a little too sweet but quite flavorful.

Pours a pretty golden color. Smell is of biscuts and malts. Taste is also malty, some biscuts, light hops. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Nice subtle caramel and flowery aroma. Amber, clear color with a nice tight head. Nice lace. Taste is sweet and creamy, with a soft finish. I love this beer. Best served on tap (at my house every Spring).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear reddish amber pour witha nice fluffy white head. Aroma is floral, sweet honey, and malty. Medium to light palate. Taste is very malty with sweet sugars. Probably pretty good for its style, but this just isn’t a style I gravitate to.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Southland Beverage. Aged over the winter by the brewer, time to try it. Pours a deep golden colour, with a generous retained head. Somewhat of a funky and malty aroma. Big carbonation, hops, funkiness, and spice. A palate number. Not what I expected based n my limited exposure to this style, but good drinkability. Perceived IBU is not high here.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy. Served in a tulip.
Pours a very clear dark golden color with a very thin white head that dissipates quickly with only a spot or two of lacing. Thin collar throughout. The nose carries a bit of light bready malt plus a touch of floral hops. The flavor is slightly sweet with a lot of bread and mild grain. Slight floral hops, leading to a moderate bitterness in the finish. A bit of a nutty character in the flavor as well. Medium body with moderate carbonation; fairly smooth. Good beer.
