3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Barley Pop. Deep amber color with off-white head. Light toasted malt and caramel with faint generic hops. Flavor is initially light caramel which quickly fades to a moderate, dry, pine hop bitterness. Catching some off-buttery flavors in the beginning and a bit of plastic at the end. Overall, okay for a generic amber.

Sampled on draught at the 2010 Wisconsin Craft Beer Festival in Chilton, WI as Sprecher Chilton Choice. Pours a semi-clear copper colored brew with a thick off-white that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma of Munich malt, some floral hops and a hint of tropical fruit. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of caramel and Munich malts, floral hops and a hint of spice. Finish is semi-dry with a mild bitterness that slowly disappears.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at 3 cellars. Reddish/copper pour with off-white head that dies quickly. No lacing on the glass. Malt & floral aroma with something else i canít place (bubble gum? Cantaloupe? Jelly beans?). Sweet with a hint of hops. A bit of a watery finish. Good, not great. Definitely worth trying though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Sprecher. Poured crystal-clear coppery-amber with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma was on the sweeter side with toasted redder fruits and caramel leading.. touches of honey and vanilla accented.. sugary-sweet, but for the most part enjoyable. The flavor was sweet as well, again with the caramel and fruity notes.. peppery alcohol and crisp floral bitterness laced throughout.. prickly carbonation and spicy hops on the finish.. decent balance. Medium-bodied with lower-than-expected carbonation on the palate.. this tried to have a crisp feel, but the sweetness stuck in a few places.. OK flow.
