3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear orange with thin white head. Aroma is pleasantly hoppy and refreshing. Taste, however, leaves much to be desired. Not enough balance and too thin on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle - This brew hasw an off-white head and suspended yeast particles that look like sand. It has a rather grainy, underwhelming mildly bitter flavor and a light to medium body. It’s okay, but this brewer can do better.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed on a September Saturday afternoon while doing some cleaning. Appearance a cloudy gold, tons of yeast sediment floating around with a thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma not really too apparent, maybe a touch of hops, but in a way it smells like a wet dog which is definitely unexpected. Taste is slightly sour which is not good for the style, also a bit of bitterness. Not really feeling this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Madison
Ar: Mildly hoppy aroma with a bit of citrus and a good deal of grassy hops. Caramel malt is also prevalent.
Ap: Pours a light copper with orange streaks. 1/2" head dissipates quickly and leaves little lace.
T: Quite a bit of caramel malt sweetness up front, more than is typical for this style. Mild hop bittering on the finish rounds this out nicely.
P: Medium-thin body, medium carbonation.
O: This gets a bonus point for sessionability. It would be easy to drink and enjoy 5-6 of these in an hour or two. It’s simple, but there isn’t anything "off" in here. Nice effort, and a nice change of pace from the IPA’s that I love so much.
