1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Bottle: The aroma consists of butterscotch, light fruit, and faint grain. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with a pretty intense sour fruitiness. The finish has faint notes of butterscotch and grain that struggle to get thru the sourness. Light-bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Pretty rough.

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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma is not too great. I get some grain notes as well as some dirt. Flavor is similar with grain and grass notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bright orange/amber in color with a thin head. Aroma of light citrus hops and perhaps some oranges. I guess it was a tad medicinal. The flavor had a clean hop bitterness and a bit of butter and semi-sweet medium colored malt. The malt flavor was hard to pinpoint for me. Finishes clean. It is a bit basic, but pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amberish orange, smooth dense head. Bubbly carbonation. Smells bready, toasty, and slightly peppery. Mostly malty flavor - bready, touch of caramel. Maybe a little bit of a peppery finish. Pretty run of the mill.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear amber pour with fine tan bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, toffee, a bit of trash, banana laffy taffy and peel, plus alcohol. Taste of old stale grain, banana, bit spicy, clove, and stale linger.

Amber pour with creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Sweet caramel malt with a very subtle floral bitter hop finish. Good carbonation on a medium bodied beer. A bit of a metallic finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz bottle. Filtered orange tan color. Malty and sweet, with minimal hop balance. Pretty straightforward stuff, a cut above macro-swill. Smooth and medium bodied, with some amber malt tastes. Drinkable and sessionable, but nothing that Id seek out.
