3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at Upland. Looks solid; a transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of caramel, malt, and dough with a solid lager mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by plank10. Thanks Nick.
The beer is orange hued with a thin white head that leaves sparse lacing on the glass. The aroma carries grain, fruit, malt, sweetness. Smells like a bock. The taste follows suit, with a present sweetness throughout. Fruit, grains, and a bit of alcohol. Fairly thin in body. A decent beer, but not on par with the authentic German examples of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, bottled in April 2011. Served in a mug, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. The head goes away quickly, and there isn’t much lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty, the brew smells like bready malt, dark fruit, toffee and a little bit of grassy hops. Taste is mostly sweet, it tastes like toffee, bready and caramel malt, and some grassy hops. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit syrupy and slick with good carbonation. I’d like to try a fresher bottle of this, but this one wasn’t too bad at all. $1.99 for a single bottle at Liquor Barn.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My favorite Upland beer. Smooth maltiness. Good color. Nice spiciness from the hops. An excellent example of the style, albeit with a slightly higher amount of hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled in April 2009.
A: Slightly hazed light amber color with a decent head and plenty of lacing.
S: Slightly sweetened malt with a little bit of grassiness.
T: Sweet grains with a tad bit of amber/caramel to it. Hops are a bit weak.
M: Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation and little alcohol feel.
D: Pretty drinkable, but nothing remarkable about this one. Not the finest of Upland’s offering, but still a pretty good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2010 Aroma of toffee, caramel and sweet roll. Appearance was light brown with tan head. Flavor matched the nose, with a nice interplay between malty sweetness and light (though boozy) hop character. Palate was bubbly and creamy. Pretty good.
