2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This brew doesnít have a very strong aroma. It has a ruby color, the head isnít strong, but does cling to the glass. It has a slight bitterness to it and a decent taste, but not overly favorable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of Max, at Andys. Pours a light amber brown body with not much lacing or head. Aroma is malt, bread, light fruit, spice and a touch of hop. Mouthfeel is medium to thin, somewhat dull with notes of spicy bread, bland fruit, malt? barley? Not terrible, just dull.

Somewhat sweet aroma with bread, caramel, and dark fruit. Flavor starts sweet and mild. Watery finish with some bittering hops. Nothing earth shattering but decent enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Clear amber/ruby with a thin ivory head which was quick to disappear.
Aroma: Bread/toast, raisin, mineral, hay/grass, earthy and peppery.
Taste: Low/medium sweetness, low bitterness and sourness.
Palate: Smooth thick texture, light body, average carbonation, mildly astringent and lingering fruity malty finish.
Comments: Tasty, no glass lace. This beer would have been better if it was slightly stronger as it had the basis for nice dried fruit and vinous flavours. Good session beer overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear light brown with wispy white streaks. Aroma is crazy sweet. Kind of like wort almost. Taste brings more sweetness and malt. A little caramel in there. A light bitterness follows. Average palate. Finishes a bit sweet and doesnít linger.

Chocolately, grainy, unmalted barley. Copper pour. Mild body, slight skunk. Not particularly exciting. Easily drinkable, as one would hope.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A Ruby colored ale with a sweet malt nose, and a light malty fruit bitter.
Rather consistent. All around solid.
