2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Here’s a style that I haven’t much experience with. Clear light amber, this beer is pretty tame with flavors that are sweet and malty with a hint of lolipops. Decent, refreshing, drinkable, just not all that great and certainly not my favorite style of beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample or two at the 2009 Parkville Microbrew Fest. Pour is clear copper with a smallish, thin white head. Aroma of toasty malt, and mild sugar sweetness. There is also a dustiness to it that is hard to explain. Taste is almost all about the toasted malt graininess, with only an edge of the sweetness near the back. Palate is thin, and decent carbonation. A bit one dimensional, but really super drinkable.

12oz bottle. Clear, medium amber color, thin white head. Aroma of musty lagering. Very unique. Flavor is of toasted grains, some spicy pepper. Is it rye? Yummy. Smooth and clean. Light medium bodied. Perfect to style.

<i>Thanks to soonah for the bottle!</i>
Orangish-ice tea with a small off-white head. Sweet nose of honey and wheat, no detectable hop presence. Hop in the flavor leaving it a little bitter, yet more wheat and also some fruit, lemon and manderin orange. Palate is well carbonated despite being a little thin. Nice and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a amber with a large white head. Aroma is caramel malts and some dark fruit. Flavor is a bit heavy and grainy with some of the caramel malts from the aroma carrying over. A pretty good examole of the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery. Light amber beer has thick, sturdy white head. Nose is more grainy than sweet or malty. Flavor is lightly sweet with a nice, moderate bitterness for balance. Tasty and a little rough in a good way.
