3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a great beer. Tap at Jose Pistolas in Philly. Poured a amber color (!) and quite dark, I thought I was getting a quality beer, with a large white head. Aroma was somewhat pleasant, quite sweet with a nice hoppy note to it. Taste was quite terrible. I really did not enjoy this beer. kind of like rancid dishwater, needs some work.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. Notch on the bottle indicates that this is best by 1/2015. Clear orange red color. Finger of khaki head. Leaves good thicker lace, and has good head retention. Caramel malt, toasty. Not bad, considering it’s age. Just a touch of metallic, and some mustiness in the nose. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft light to moderate carbonation. Light slick texture. Moderate sweet taste, good light bitter. Solid stuff. Good to enjoy with my left over pizza. I bet it’s great fresh.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 A: Clear copper with a half finger of beige foam. Busy carbonation. Short retention with good lacing.
S: English hops and toffee. Smells delicious!
T: Toasted malts with a mild but tasty hop bite coming in. Much like the smell. Not very complex but I think it’s very tasty indeed.
M: On the lighter side of medium body. Still busily bubbling but I like the tingle. Medium length chewy finish.
O: A pretty tasty refreshing amber overall and easily available in my area at very good $9/6 prices. Worth buying again.
