1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From bottle. Deep amber red. Bubbly. Caramel nose. Thin body. Verrry sweet; very unbalanced with a mouth-puckering sweetness. Not even malty caramel, almost like red pop.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A very sweet aroma, almost of cane sugar water with a hint of strawberry. A clear, almost copper tone, no head, no bubbles. Very sweet taste, not really balanced, but decent with a salty dish. Thin and a bit watery palate. Overall, ok, not good.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is pretty papery. Little else. Some honeyed pear. Corn. A touch oily and fat. Not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling, medium copper pour, pillowy snow white head that leaves a light trail of lacing. Aroma has some yeasty accents, a touch of sweet cake mix. Flavor is solid with some some cake mix, a touch of molasses, some toasted bread and a back end nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a decent crispness to it. Pleasantly surprised.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned 10/01/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head and lace. A weak nose with just some well hidden floral hop. Quite tasty though. Light sweetness and malty strength. A bit of vomitty fruit late on but otherwise I quite like this.

Canned (thanks CueSheet & SADESA). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, grassy and also has some slight toffeeish notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, sweet malts along with some slight alcohol to it as well. Still a nicely balanced and tasty brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is not as strong tasting as its percentage suggest it would be. Golden with a small head it’s more firm in its texture than anything else and delightfully smooth too. Has a light sweetness.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, picked up from a shady nightshop. Pours a headless, dark golden beer with an aroma of sugar, grain and caramel. Flavour is very sweet and sugary and quite uninteresting. Tastes like more alcohol than 6%. Not so good, fair for a strong pils, nothing more.
