3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a brassy body with a creamy off-white head that disapates but is rejuvinatable. The aroma is light corn and subtle molasses. Light and unoffensive unlike some other Poor Richards’ I’ve had. The flavor is light toffee, light corn syrup, simple sugary grains. Also unoffensive. Much easier drinking than the one by Carlyle. Bready. The palate is medium bodied, slightly astringent, nice texture. Bonus points overall for making a quality beer out of simple ingredients.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark copper pour… medium-sized, light tan frothy head.
Seems a bit like roasted corn, with mild, balancing sweetness of brown sugared Wheaties. A very easy drink, but a bit fizzy on the palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper color with a modest beige head. LIght malt and a touch of brown sugar in the nose. A mild cinnamon spice added some bite to the otherwise sweet malt and brown sugar flavors.

a light sweet malt aroma, light medium body almost a candy sugar,and honey type of sweetness,with just a hint of tartness that gave it carbonated wine type taste. Enjoyable, I would get it again

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy copper body. Brief metallic, green hop bitterness followed by corn flake cereal malt and light crystal in the aroma. Clean light crystal and light brown sugar followed by an odd peat-like tartness (some sort of aromatic malt?). Medium-light mouthfeel. Seems authentically old as opposed to Great Dane’s which seems more like a modern brown.
