3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Sour Village / CCB Tasting on 05/20/2011. This beer is a lustrous golden-yellow color with a medium thin bone whitehead that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of mildly spiced hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, hops and zesty fruit. The finish is mildly hopped and short. Pretty average overall, I was expecting more.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel. Slightly hazy golden. Aroma of stale hops and a bit of malt. Sweet malty flavor with some honey, a bit of fruitiness and a slightly drier finish with a bit of cardboard. Medium-bodied. Not good, seems old.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Pours a clear, deep yellow with a sheeting white head. Aroma of honey, malt, cherries, and sweet syrup. Taste is malty, boozy, spicy, with a palate that is powdery dry. But as this warms and I spend more time with it, the nose really devolves quite a bit. What was sweet with some oddities now smells like diabetic, sugar heavy urine; cherry powder, even a bit of poopy toilet. Something old and fusel in character is making itself known. Taste is trash malty, powder, flour, bland corn starch. Really just a definitive drain pour. Really just unenjoyable. Vile, gag-reflex on the palate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear medium gold with 3 finger white head. Nose is pale malt, mild hopcitrus. Tastes pale malty, with some sweetness, and a crisp hoppy finish. Medium to light palate with pretty well hidden alcohol. Not as good as Sam Impy Pils or the Rogue version, and just OK overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Radek. Deep golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is semi-sweet and a little bit honeyed. Some light sticky malt and a touch of cooling minty honey malt flavour. A little bit of soft herbal malt flavour. Simple brew – probably has a bit of age on it, but it’s decent enough.
