Not the best good beer... but I’d drink it if I only had to drink one.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Tap at Redbones: pours dark amber with a creamy beige head. Mild caramel aroma. Flavor seems a bit off, almost vegetal. Mild earthy hop flavor. Decent but something seems off with this.
Bottle: pours clear copper with a smallish tan head. Light aroma of anise. Light flavor of anise. Better than the tap at Redbones.

12 oz. bottle. clear copper/orage with a thin, wispy tan head. Light, fruity aroma with a hint of spice. Taste can be summed up in one word, sweet. Has a sugery, carmel flavor. Summed up in one word, sweet. Not a bad beer, but a bit too sugery for my taste.

Bottle. Hard pour, small head which quickly receeded. Nice amber color. Bit of sweetness in the taste. Little bitterness in the finish. Not a bad beer, just doesn’t stand out for me.

12oz bottle. This is from a local brewery to me so I have tried most of their offerings. As with their other beers there is nothing special here. Just OK.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, December 2005 (from notes). Pours a dark brown with a frothy head. Aroma is heavy malt with a bit of chocolate characteristics. Flavor is a muddled mess of spices, chocolate, and malt, with a little hop as well. I did not like this at all.

nice amber/ orange colored ale with fast fading head. Aroma was caramel and vanilla. The taste took some effort to get but was some grassiness and pine. Almost reminded me of the smell of air in the fall with all the dieing leaves. Smooth texture
