Malty and sweet aroma on an amber colored beer with a cream colored head. Nice balance of malt and hops, some spice. Pretty good.

I don’t remember much about this one - other than that it was pretty sweet for my taste. Had on tap at the brewery/vineyard. Most of their beer was pretty forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 Absolutely gorgeous. Huge tan head on a clear cherry coke colored beer. Nose of vanilla, classic floral hops, and sweet malts. Taste of malts, vanilla, toffee, and bitter hops, with a long bitter finish. A little thin in the mouth, and dry, almost tannic, almost nutty, almost astringent.

served on tap at the brewery. Pours a dark amber brown color with absolutely no head. Does look kinda like soda. Flavor is caramel malts, slightly roasted nut and bitter hop undertone. Overall, decent but not my favorite.

Right up there with Sam Adams. Hazy orange color, frothy white head. Aroma is sweet with some earthy type smells(twigs, grass). Tart flavor. Moderate body, balanced finsih, but not that interesting.

I detect apples, dark fruits and raisin in this very smooth well balanced beer. I had it at the brewery on tap. The aroma seems a bit weak and the flavor isn’t very pronounced-it just exists to appeal. The malty quotient here was appealing I have to say.

The sample of this that I had was a bit old, but still stood out as being pretty good. A nice change and something work trying.

This is a fairly tasty dark lager. Usually I am not a big fan of lagers, but this is malty and sweet with a nice bitter balance. Excellent aroma and very carbonated, this is a good beer.
