3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of bittering hops, soft berries, lager yeast, toasted malt. Flavor has an herbal woody feel with the toasted malt and lager yeastiness cutting through. Medium-bodied, a bit on the weak side, though does have a semi-rich, earthy finish. Not bad stuff, but certainly better to be had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts. Very toasted! Flavor is also quite toasted--lots of bread and cracker malts. Slight hints of sweet malt as well. Light bodied, perhaps a little too light/weak. Decent but nothing I’d seek out again.

Tap at the Tram Club, Snowbird, UT. Clear amber pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma and flavor are all malt, with just a touch of roasty nuts. Thin bodied. Highly drinkable, but not much going on.

Draft at the tiger. Pours an amber body with a small pale head. Aroma is pale malt, a bit of Sweetness and wet paper. No etoh or hops to boot. This was a pretty plain beer 22 percentile is about right.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a deep amber/copper color with a huge creamy head that lasted to the bottom of the glass. The nose was very fresh and clean to the senses, mostly roasted malts and slightly citrusy. The taste starts with big, lightly sweet malt, and the finish has a piney pleasantness to it. The aftertaste is dry and crisp. A quite drinkable beer and at 4% ABV, something that would make a nice session beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another hookup from douglas88, 12 oz. bottle, bottled 11/7/07. Pours nice amber, with a brief head. Clean malt smell is just starting to show some papery oxidation around the edges. Still shows a nice, amber malty taste, like a good lawnmower/bowling alley beer. Sticky texture, a bit nutty and bready, with a calm, assured noble hop background. Another example of how to make a decent lower-alcohol beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper/brown color. A slight sweetness. The low alcohol sets this up as a pretty light beer. Toasted caramel malt aroma. Toffee and a slight bitter finish. Quick finish.
