3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours light copper with an immense head of closely packed, tiny bubbles and thin, tight rings of lacing, especially near the top of the glass. Aroma is very earthy - grass and mud - and a little malty. Flavor is light - malt and a minor hop bite to go with the hints of grass and dirt. Not much of a fan of earthy beers normally, but this is decent and drinkable, if not outstanding.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy dark amber with an orange hue and a finger of off white head. Aroma of citrus and grass with a little caramel and grapefruit. Taste is light bitter. Grassy and earthy with a hint of lemon and caramel. Medium bodied with a slightly thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink it again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass with a hazed, brownish amber hue, abundant and persistent, moussy, light tan head foam, and lasting, curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was sweet bread, toast, caramel, and a slight hint of chocolate? Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the solid maltiness was complemented by a lingering, earthy, rind-like, slightly herbal hop bitterness. Finished with just a touch of tartness, but mainly dry and crisp, with good sessionability.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Interesting aroma, with notes of caramel, grain, toasted bread, hop spice, faint apple and touches of doughy yeast. Hazy red-orange in color, some slight sediment which was swirled and poured, with a frothy, lasting, off-white head and thick lacing to match. Flavor profile is somewhat bitter, fruity and malty, with aspects of bready wheat, citric rye, toasted and lightly sweet caramel malts, somewhat herbal, spicy hops, finishing with hints of red apple skin and even a bit of lemon. Some sharp effervescence on the palate but with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, lightly astringent and mostly dry with a medium body. I had no idea what this was when I picked it up, and after drinking it, I still don’t. It’s certainly not bad, just a little rough around the edges (which may be authentic for the style, for all I know).

Pours light amber with white head. Fruity/ herbal aroma. Hoppy taste without the extreme bitterness. Very smooth taste and great flavor. Shout out to tizzlejizzle for the share of this bottle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tampa. Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky medium copper pour, bubbly off white head, thin lacing. Aroma is decidedly sweet with some date accents, a hint of white grapes. Flavor has the same general sweetness with some dates, toffee, some maple syrup, some citrus bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. A bomber of this would have started edging toward cloying,
