3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is cloudy orange with reasonably long lasting foam. The smell is flowery hoppy. The taste is moderately bitter with matching carbonation an a shy body taste. The aftertaste is a bit dry and leaves a slight bitter notes in the mouth.
Again, heavy metallic finish, that ruins an otherwise perfectly fine beer occurs not so seldom. The one with metallic aftertaste is rather 2.4

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy dark amber color, frothy white 2" head, thick bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds spice and toffee in the palate, then hops make brief appearance before yielding to an alcohol presence that seems well beyond the 6% abv listed. A reasonable brew.
