2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Either I got caught with an old arse bottle at WF, or this beer just sucks. Still crisp, but lacking any pronounced flavor or aroma. Generic, light sweetness and toast...a little stale. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the release of Flaming Fury. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Lemon and grain on the nose. Watery with more grainy lemon flavors. Finishes with a dry bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from the Flying Saucer in Nashville; there were a few other brews I’d rather have tried, but this crosses Virginia off my map. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, cereal, fruity notes. Flavor follows suit, with nuts, caramel malts, some fruits, and cardboard. Just a bit of hops detectable. Light-medium bodied, with a dry and quick finish. Moderate carbonation. Easily sessionable beer, and sure beats a macro lager for a night of binge drinking with friends.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours filtered tawny brown. Nose of apple juice malt, faint bread crust, some toast and light spices. Flavor is much the same, overall very plain and simple but at the very least it lacks any glaring defects, so it’s drinkable without being memorable. Clean, malty, a little red apple and toast in the finish, but quite simple. Simple can be good, simple can be downright delicious, but in this case simple is just simple.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet toffee malts and herbal hops. Not that good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap (2010) in a lager glass. The pour is pale brown with a 2-finger white head. The aroma is all corn taco shells and the flavor is similar but with plenty of buttery diacetyl. The dry hop presence comes out in the exhale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another Starr Hill brew where part (or all?) of the output comes from Old Dominion. Deep gold colour. Mild malt aroma. Dry malt flavour. Slightly smoky. There’s a touch of hay, but the hops are very muted. OK, but it didn’t really get my mojo working. On tap at the Starr Hill Brewery.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle split with Tony. Pours a slightly hazy amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is corn and malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and thin bodied with offensive notes of malt. German malts.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not a lot going on here guys. Pours amber without much head or lacing. Some crispness and a touch of sugar. This ones been in the back of my fridge for a while. Bottle.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz pint at Clyde’s in Chinatown pours a clear amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is fine, some yeast, some bread, a little root veg, some mild soap, not much else. Flavor has a rusty penny thing happening, some muddle citrus, but mostly just yeast and bread. Merciful, clean finish.
