2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I picked this up as a M&M 6pack from Binny’s in Downer’s Grove, IL in summer 2012.
Pours a clear, medium brown/amber color with a perfect off-white head. Some slight scents of wheat and malts, but nothing overpowering in the smell. Taste is quite mellow and very light. You get some hints of raw wheat but that it is. The actual taste is fine, there just need to be more flavor behind it. Overall a weak beer that needs work, but I guess it’s all about marketing it as a USDA organic in the end.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was ruddy ice tea with two fingers of light khaki head. There was very little lacing, but the retention was a notable positive. Nose is old vegetables, wheat, yeast, grass, and light cloves. Taste is wheat, yeast, grainy malt, and an oddball (but light) tang that I can’t place. I’m not crazy about this brew, though that is more the fault of the style. I can drink one though, still far easier than a Budweiser!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Spicy, fruity and wheat malt aroma. Copper red color. Taste of caramel and a hint of banana On the thin side for something this sweet. Feels hastily thrown together, as if it’s blend of caramel amber ale and spicy hefe rather than an original beer. Also has the visage of Palin on it...make of it what you will.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours a nice deep clear copper with thin gold edges and thin tan head. The aroma seems to be a mix of spicy hops, mineral notes, some mildly roasted maltiness and then a vague sense of fruity esteriness. The taste delivers the same sort of modest spicy hoppiness mixing with various malts and a bit of roastiness. Midway some estery sweetness joins in as the carbonation erupts a bit across the palate. Decent enough.

Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Minimal aroma of wheat and caramel. Decent lacing, but flavor seems watered down with hint of caramel, spice, and grain.

Pours deep coppery toward autumn leaf with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is bitter caramel malt, mild butyric acid, some nuts. Tastes caramel malty, with some sweet brown sugary and mild hop and spice notes in the finish. OK, not great.
