3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Switchback. Cloudy orange beer with a white head. Lightly earthy and floral hops on the nose and tongue. Some sweet caramel, bread, and toasted malts as well. Pretty malt forward beer, in fact. There is a light bitterness, some apple esters, and woody hops. Maybe a little bit on the grassy side. It’s okay.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Friend brought me back a couple of bottles from Vermont. Pours a dark amber that is impossible to see light through. Huge head, very sudsy, pillowy head and leaves a really nice amount of lacing on the glass. Very good looking beer. Some malt on the nose, with maybe a faint amount of some hop spiciness. Doesn’t smell as good as it looks, but there is nothing offensive in the aroma, just fairly weak. Watery, slick and oily mouthfeel. Some hop bitterness in the flavor profile, but watery and pretty weak. Maybe I am having a bad day with all of these misses. Not a drainpour, can finish this one, but there is nothing here that is going to make me sad that this is my last bottle of it. Glad I got to try it, but can safely move on from here.

Excellent smooth and light taste. Easy drinking beer. I often refer to this as the "Budweiser of real beer drinkers", because it is extremely popular when drinking several beers.

Bottled version. Pours out a medium russet amber. Frothy off white head. Very earthy. Light malts. Thin body. Lingering sticky malt finish. I probably need to let this one warm up more.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at the brewpub with commonshawn, rosskyle, samadouche. Half pint. Deep orange with hints of amber. Good lacing. Nose has malty/cereal qualities with some hop bitterness. Taste is very basic and approachable. You won’t find complexity here. Mild bitterness filling in the gaps between the dominant malty, grainy notes. Strange fruity finish that joins in with a mostly herbal tea bitterness. This feels like a beer I’ll forget soon after I’ve finished it.

Light malt and grassy aroma. Hazy dark orange body with on a thin bubbly head. Light malt, grainy grass taste, Mild sweetness. Has a hint of tartness. Finish is on the dry side. The only negative is that it seems kind of plain. It is drinkable light bodied.
