2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2005 Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, fully diminishing.
Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned.
moderately malty (cookie, grain),
lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot),
with a note of lemon.
moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
lightly sweet, heavily acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic.
Another terrible Two Brothers brew, sadly. This is my second review, this time from bottle rather than draught, and it still rates below 3.0 for me. This is metallic, very sour (possibly infected), and kind of grainy. Even aside from all that, it’s only vaguely to style. Disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amber color and an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some caramel and malts. The maltiness dominates with some hop that lingers just slightly. A touch astringent and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty dark red. Musky malt in the nose. Soft and round on the tongue. Slight roast to the malt. Nutty for sure. Still not what I would expect from the style.

Surprisingly good product of Two Brothers. Clean with good depth, good malt and decent bitterness. Nicely balanced, good mouthfeel. Solid brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very cloudy copper/amber color, with a white head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavor is mostly sweet malts, with slight sour notes, and not much complexity. A very competent ale, though I've certainly had better.
