1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light brown. Disturbing nose. Smells more like pot smoke than any pot smoke ever produced. While I know some people on Ratebeer that would likely automatically give this one a 10 in aroma because of that fact, Iím not one of those people. Flavor starts a bit sweet, then the same musty pot flavor comes on. Nasty aftertaste. As most people seem to think this beer has no scent, perhaps I just got a "special" bottle. At any rate, it sucked.

Features all of the aromatic offerings of a large pencil eraser. Pink rubber is also found in the taste. Thankfully, a bit of sweet malt softened the dry errant-comma-rubbing strangeness.

Bottle: Dark woody amber with a thin head. Little to no aroma. The flavor is quite tart ... hint of ashen smoke, maybe, but almost puckeringly tart predominately. Not a fan.

Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is fruity, light nut, faint grain and faint malt. Flavor isnít much different. Mouth feel is light body and watery. Nothing I would recommend.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
In my whole life I have never opened anything other than a single-celled water smoking unit and smelled the aroma of bong water so stronly as my first whiff of this beer. Hazy amber, light tan smallish head. That aroma is too much. I am not sure how they managed this, especially in Utah, but manage it they did. Lightly sweet aroma that develops into... nothing. Watery body, bong water aftertaste. Ugghhh. Even if you like to smoke the ganja I bet you will not like tis one.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 Ugh, this taste just like Two Brothers Brown Fox Session Ale. It starts out like a typical Brown Ale but the aftertaste is like used/old chewing gum. I dont know if it is the difference in geography that one brewer calls it an amber lager and the other it is a mild brown ale but the taste is the same, putrid. This was included in my last shipment of Michael Jacksonís beer of the month club, it will be my last.

Red-brown with good lacing. Aroma suggests sourness and a metallic touch, with little malt presence. The flavor is horrific--a sweet front lasting for just one second, after which this is a hollow, thin, malt water. Metallic, thin palate. Iím very glad to see a brewer making a go of it in Utah but Iím sorry to say that this beer needs wholesale review and improvement.

Donít know if I got a bad batch or what, but this may be the worst beer Iíve had from a Utah craft brewer. Iíd rather drink BMC than this. Terrible both in aroma and flavor.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
14oz bottle. Thin, watery, clear golden pour with no head. Absence of any aroma. Prepare to cringe after your first sip; the beer tastes like pills without the sweet coating on them. Aside from bitterness, I could taste honey and something else. Gets a little more palatable later. Absolutely horrid aftertaste. Clearly, something has gone wrong in this beer. Not recommended.

I paid a whopping $0.50 for this, and might have been robbed a quarter. Coppery amber with a thin head. It looks nice, but that is where it ends. Malt with a distinct metallic odor. Somewhat sweet, malty metal flavor, seems like some sort of spice was added, a bad one at that. Almost could not finish.
