1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap. Mild buttery notes, a bit of apple with caramel, not very sweet. Fruity with a little hops. Dull amber clear with foamy off-white lacing head. Light bodied with medium-soft carbonation. Dull red ale, not a lot of maltiness or hoppiness, not overly refreshing or crisp. Very average offering and not one I’d have again. Mild cardboard in the aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I went into drinking this beer not expecting much. I read that it was exceptionally poor but it was not. The aroma reminded me of a Belgian, but I don’t think the brewer was going for that outcome. The body was a dark and cloudy dirty amber. Rich and full but didn’t appear to be all quality ingredient based. The beer came across as unique. The head held up while the beer stayed cold. There is definitely something funky going on with this beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish-amber color, hazy, active body, frothy light brown head. Mostly lasting head, fair lacing. Light bread malts, banana, and alcohol. Initial taste is light sweet, moving to a light bitter finish with short duration. Body is light, with a chalky texture, and active carbonation. After the carbonation subsides, the taste disappears with it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A hazy reddy amber coloured beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is nutty and a little toasty. Fruity flavours with more toasty bready malts. Reasonably sweet. Not much hop evident, but drinkable, if a little unexciting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Light amber, off-white head. Aroma is fruity and caramelly. Strong sweet toffeeish malt aroma. Falvour is decent but way too sweet. Caramel and overdone crystal malt. Some sweet estery fruitiness. Low bitterness. Meh... way too sugary.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with jjpm74 (thanks!). Poured a dark and cloudy redi/amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, light caramel, and I’m getting faint banana. Tastes of citrus, nuts, and toasted malts. Tastes were like the body, on the thin and watery side.
