This is sweeter than I normally like, but it is alright. I donít know why the sweetness doesnít bother me. I canít really smell much because I was sick and my nose is still a bit stuffy. Appearance is standard and non-exciting. I donít taste any fire?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chef Geoffís, DC tap ($7): Pours a light copper color with a white head. Aroma is a little spicy, with sweet malts at the forefront, and even a little boozy note. The beer is rather sweet, but not as cloying and annoying as some of the other people are making it out to be. Strange bready notes (donít know how else to describe them). There actually is a counterbalancing hops presence, which doesnít really mitigate the sweetness of the beer. Not that bad. Drinkable, a bit strange, and nothing really all that special.

This a growler fom the brewery enjoyed on a night prior to work at Va tech. The beer was like a beligan white. It was too sweet for my taste. It needs some hops for balance. Smooth finishSome head with cloudy amber color.

On tap at the red lion in florida, nice place. Looks like pale lager. No visible CO2. Smells just plain fresh & beery. A lager which is a little coarse. Reminds me a bit of cheaper american malt liquor. Typical bock beer experience. Probaly should be styled as a strong lager.

Poured a hazy amber/orange color with a foamy off-white head. Slightly sweet fruity aroma with cheese and dough. Taste has a surprising amount of orange flavor with coriander. Reminds me of a Belgian white almost, with all the wheat notes. A little too sweet and not many hops to balance it out, but itís drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super hazy golden coloured body with a large off-white head and a thick body that looks like raw manuka honey. Aroma of pale malt, unfinished wort, sweetness, apricots and some light hops. Medium-bodied; Strong citrus and orange flavours with a bit more unfinished flavours tucked in. Aftertaste has some light citrus, very light german or european hops and some malt characteristics (wheat or light malt) that show fairly well. Overall, a decent beer - okay for the style, but nothing absolutely great and nothing expected for this time of year! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Ye Olde Spirit Shop in Frederick, Maryland on 29-July-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 17-January-2011.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from bottle. Appearance is a somewhat hazy copper with a decent white head. Aroma is spicy like what a hefeweizen would be. Taste is strong spiciness. This is a nice sipper but not necessarily one to have very many. Overall this is an enjoyable beer but nothing to be sought after.

Pours a golden color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, and malts. Spices show up in the flavor, along with more honey, caramel, malts and toasted bread. Overall, medium bodied, and very smooth.

Brought by my nephew Nate to our family Christmas get together. 12 oz. bottle. This poured a light copper color. A thin head never went away. There was some decent fruit, light fruit and light malt. A nice little hop flourish in the finish. A creamy feel. Nothing over the top here and a nice little beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours with a thick creamy head atop a brown-ish color. first sip is sweet. this one is almost malt liquor-y. a bit of alcohol burn at the end along with a bit of unwanted sharpness. some strong ale notes linger.
