2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). Last of the mix six. Let’s see how it goes. Pours a nice dulled amber orange hue, faint haze, but near transparent. Lively carbonation, frothy tannish head atop dies to a decent layer, sticks around small and laces ok. A bit darker in the middle, some decent glow on the edges. Aromas are carmelized malts, a bit biscuity and bready. Some gentle spice, earthiness and more carmelized malts. Gentle earthy hops, some mellow florals and grass. A touch spicy. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch of body shows carmelized malts and a faint bit of toffee. Bready, grainy with some decent earthy hop presence, florals and grass. Some gentle body, carbonation and carmelized biscuity malts hit the middle. A touch sweeter as you catch stride, some earth, toast and caramel. Backend is a touch dry and earthy but still a bit sweet overall. A touch less malt influence would be nice. A touch of soap, spice and carmelized malts as we play out, a bit softened overall and sweet as I said. It’s ok, but not really my digs. Still, it’s pretty approachable. Looks great too with that good head, lively carbonation, nice lacing and stick around.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Sweet base malt aroma with some soda crackers, walnuts, and red fruit. Clear orange amber under a wispy, white top. Nutty and sweet flavour that it’s week enough to allow some ethanol to penetrate. Medium high carbonation, low bitterness, slight cardboardy oxidation note.

Ordinary beer without much taste. Nice color, but watery taste. Not offensive.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured slightly warm by bartender into a cold glass. High foam levels with decent lacing. Over abundant smell of yeast and copper orange color. Sweet sweaty flavor reminiscent of Budweiser Black Crown in a cloying way almost as if its all diacytel based. Nothing pleasant on palate just yeast in a medicinal way. Way too sweet and simply not a well crafted product. This will be on my never again list....

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I found the look of this beer much better than the taste. Perfect color, dark brown. After drinking two of these I felt bloated. Too much yeast in this beer. Original mouth feel is nice and smooth, then the yeast takes over and dominates the palate. Will not drink again.
