Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Very malty and a bit creamy. Not bad but forgettable.

Poured a golden tellow with a minimal head. Nice nose. Very smooth across the palate. Really not bad for a contract brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear golden amber color with strong looking carbonation trails. The head is a two finger white color with low retention, but a great texture. A nice amount of spiderweb lacing is left on the glass.
S: Light grassiness, with some supplementary darker fruits, such as raisin and plum. OK, just a little weak.
T: Initially, it’s fairly bready to start, before becoming intrusively malty on the midtaste, before the flavor kind of vanishes on the finish, excluding a slight aftertaste. The lingering fruit aftertaste isn’t particularly likable, either - it’s a bit like apple juice, in a way. It smooths out after several sips, but it’s just kind of...weird. Quite imbalanced, too.
M: Moderately heavy with a neutral finish, yet there’s an undercutting surge of dryness on the aftertaste that clashes with the rest of the texture. Carbonation is about where it needs to be in terms of strength.
O: It’s cheap ($1), drinkable, and features 7% alcohol, but the beer itself doesn’t impress. Too intrusively offbeat to be a good beer, but I don’t hate it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear gold with a thick, white, frothy head that stays. Decent lacing. Subtle, malty aroma. Creamy but nonetheless thin mouthfeel. Overly sweet flavor, even for the style. Not impressive.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared by turdferguson. Pours a sharp and clean peach gold with one finger of white head. Nose mellow, vegetal and herbal with a slightly spicy character and bready malt. Gross flavor, creamed corn and sweet malt. Medium body with a warming finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Fairly cloudy golden with small
spotty white lace. Toasted grain nose, at least its not sweet or buttery. Flavor is more on par with this brewery--a bit of stewed veggies to go along with the overcooked malt. Ugh. I'm gonna need something good after tasting all this stuff.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear copper with a frothy head. Aroma is off. Standard caramel and toffee but with an odd fruity off flavor. Taste follows suit. Somewhat sticky palate. Astringent finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light orange into the glass, with a wispy head that diminishes to trace lacing. The nose is caramel. Caramel malts, some lightly bready flavors and burnt toffee to the tongue. The finish is lightly burnt. There are some lightly yeasty sours intermingling throughout the mid-palate, but nothing dominates. Decently substantive, but nothing special on the palate. It’s a little slick, but almost whisky-like in the mouth. Thus, a thinner mouthfeel with a higher ABV makes for a weird body on the brew. Ok, I guess.
