2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep burnt orange pour with a 1 finger head that diminishes to a ring. Something is just off in this. Almost has a malty cherry quality...not like any amber I’ve ever tasted. Just couldn’t get past it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle - Pours a crystal clear medium amber color with small light tan head. Aroma has faint biscuity notes, light caramel, faint roasty notes. Flavor is faintly nutty, notes of toasted malts and light caramel. Finish is fairly balanced. Overall this is alright - certaintly nothing to seek out, but not a bad session ale if you don’t have a lot of options.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle purchased in Hill City, SD, of all places. Pours a dark amber-brown with not much head. Aroma started out slightly lightstruck, but as that faded a very nice toastiness came through, with not much else going on. The flavor was pretty bland, not as malty as the aroma and again, not much else going on. Palate was average, maybe a bit fizzy. Not a terribly good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well, its about that time so...I like the theme of the label, I’m sure the rest of Utah agrees. The color was a beautiful amber with a head that ran away like the world’s greatest coward. The smell is a nice cereal, malty smell; I like it. The taste drops off quick. Decent malty flavor but somehow fades with a bad ending. I’d like to subtract more points but I really like the smell, fuck. GO UTAH!

Pours amber as expected. Sweet smell on this brew which ends up having a peat, chocolate, malt flavor to it. Goes down smooth.

Bottle shared by goldtwins. Pours a mostly clear golden brown. Pleasant aroma of molasses and malt. The flavor is very weak malt and frankly not much else. Mild bitterness at the finish. Nothing exciting, but no problems either.
