3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had at the brewpub after a tour of the place. Not bad, but reminded me of Sam Adams... not sure how I feel about that.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz bottle. Poured clear medium amber with a nice initial cap of white head that receded to a film in a minute or so. Aroma found toasted caramel with a nice citrus presence (oranges primarily)... quite pleasant.
Flavor picked up toasty caramel, a hint of marshmallow, cereal notes, and a low-ish level of floral bitterness. Smooth on the palate with the mild bitterness.. a touch soapy on the back-end. Decent brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Semi-sweet and moderately bitter. Toasted oat aroma and copper colored body. The finish is smooth, but there is nothing too spectacular here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky, medium orange pour with a slight white head. Bit of a worty aroma, some molasses. Flavor has some raisins, molasses, a bit of caramel, good rib sticking flavor. Sticky mouthfeel....leaning to the cloying side near the end though. Thanks to Aurelius for saving this out of his beer of the month club

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: neat, rich with full depth color of amber-gold. Fine creamy (on thin side) head was presented.
Nose :Strong yet balanced aroma , front of green hops with golden malts. Caramel cookie dough with citrus.
Flavor/Palate : Sadly I was its body to be shallow , empty shell of malt with faint hop touch that sat on lips. Dusty, forgettable ending with short episode of alcohol. Average at best.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz bottle served at the miller time pub (milwaukee, wi). Decided to go for this after I didn’t partake in it after the tour. Pours a very nice slightly hazed amber with a big puffy offwhite head that laces. Aromas are nice light carmel malts balanced with decent florals and citrus with a touch of gumball sweetness. Initial is light bodied, a touch toasted cereal, carmel, amd toffee balanced with a light bitterness and subtle inviting citrus. Finishes nicely, light malty sweetness finishes and is pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light copper with a thin but persistent white head. Nice vienna style aroma of toased bread and lager-y caramel. Flavor is nice and crisp with a satisfying toast and earthy caramel flavor with a kiss of olde world grassy hop kick. Very balanced and toasty, and just a little leafy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Clean amber hue with very good frothy head and lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, toast, and biscuit malts, grassy hops, light pineapple, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts mellow and lightly sweet. A hoppy bitterness soon follows with a dash of fruity undertones. A floral character leads to a mild biter and metallic finish. The feel is a bit watery. Quaffable, but leaves something to be desired. Thanks for the bottle, MrFacto.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (16oz). Slightly hazy rich amber pour, nice bubbling and a 2cm foamy beige head. Light, crisp aroma of mild fresh cereal grain, toasty caramel sweetness, and light herbal bitterness. The taste - well, I’m disappointed; elements from the aroma, but mostly just bottle metallic harshness. Light body, somewhat undercarbonated, crisp-finishing, but that metal lingers, I’m afraid, although it seems to fade as it warms and opens, leaving run-of-the-mill bland toasty grain and light herbal/grassy hop bitteness in its wake.
