3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Bright copper-amber colour. Caramel malts and woody hops feature in the aroma. Moderate bitterness but little hop character to match. There is also quite a bit of caramelly, slightly toasty/earthy malt sweetness. The finish is more of the same - a pleasurable bitterness but too much caramelly malts for my taste. Well-made brew but pretty far from my ideal pale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place in (near) St. Louis, MO. Coppery color with a fine, foamy beige head. Aroma is primarily roasted caramel with a hint of fruity hop. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is rather floral, with light roasted caramel. Halfway between APA and ESB. Maybe the finish is a bit too bit for an ESB. Very refreshing. Smooth with no raw harsh impression. Good drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample from distrbutor. Poured clear dark amber with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly and produced good lacing. Moderate hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium hoppy bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of average duration. Good drinkable brew.

(Bottle) Pours a murky amber-brown body with a descent off-white head. Aroma of grapes, raisins, and maple syrup. Flavor of malts, caramel, and cola. Slick mouthfeel. Not sure why this is classified as an APA...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
5 Initially quite lagery aroma when cold. As it warms, it becomes sweeter and spicier, maybe cookies. A touch of alcohol.
3 Rich orange, lots of lacing from teh small off-white head.
5 Pretty dull taste, sweet malts, I guess. I guess a it yeasty and some banana. Some earthiness, mushrooms, and even alcohol.
3 Smooth palate, crisp carbonation. Just feels so dead. No depth. Finish is earthy and with burnt plastic astringent bitterness
11 5% sweet beers should not smell and taste of alcohol. Simply adequate, otherwise.
