1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ornery Otter on tap at Red Oak Pub in Newark Ohio. This blond poured an apple juice amber, clear with very little head. The nose was also faint, a bit of malt and a touch of hops but not much else. Taste was rather disappointing, weak and vaguely of grain. Body rather fluid, not overly carbonated. Finish just a touch of good bitters. Overall a very disappointing offering from an exceptional brewer.

On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Crystal. Mildly hazy golden - orange color. Minimal white head. Lighter to medium body. Lighter, more crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Kind of a cheaper bite, lighter bitter taste. Not a huge fan of this one.

Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured on draft. Clear pale yellow with a white head of foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is sweeter than I would have expected, but it doesn’t seem out of place here. Finish is abrupt and a touch grainy. Nice blond ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Weasel Boy this past weekend.
Pours a clean light golden color with a good white head and some light lacing down the sides. The nose carries a bit of light sweetness and some bread. Nothing complex, but nicely done. Flavor is lightly sweet and has bready notes and a touch of honey. Light body with good carbonation. An easy sipper on a very hot day.
Serving type: on-tap

Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear pale orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Malty aroma with hints of fruit. Light, clean body with flavors of grainy malt, fruit and mild hops. The finish is short and fruity. Average overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy pale but not any detectable yellow in the color, more like a very light vanilla. Good beery smell with a leathery olfactory in the background. Some initial bitterness on the first swig. Goes down fairly easy without complaint. Fairly mild and light. Interesting to say the least. Has a medium mild finish.
