3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance- Pours clear amber with slight head
Smell- Best part of the beer. Smelled like a mix of caramel and fruit. The fruit/sweetness mix reminded me of a blueberry muffin. Great smelling beer.
Taste-Completely different from the smell. Basic bready/crackery flavor with a little citrus
Mouthfeel- Smooth with very slight carbonation.
Overall- I was a little let down. I was expecting a stronger flavor after I smelled it but still a decent beer.

This golden ale has floral notes. A hoppy flavor which finishes clean and doesn't linger.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden amber with good near white head. Nose has almost a perfumy/earthy note. kinda like lima beans, but not offensive. Citrus, but herbal. Smooth and not bitter, until the very tail end that has a grassy bitter twinge. Overall, pretty easy drinking pale ale. I could drink quite a few of these.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear amber body with a short white head. Juicy maraschino cherry / pear / fruit cocktail nose with lighter hints of tropical bubble gum and pine sap; leafy and grassy at times, and a little musty and sweaty game-y (animal hair), but that character seems to shapeshift back into a more typical Cracklin’ Oat Bran / bread / grain / toffee Caramel, Munich and Vienna malt character. Sweet and oily with medium carbonation. Nothing to change your world here, just a lot of resins and juicy hops and a typically-rough Widmer malt texture with their grating artificial carbonation. Chalky + sugary = sweet tart candies in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Caramel orange pour with a foamy light tan head. Aromas of toffee and grapefruit. The flavor is a wonderful balanced roasted citrus flavor. It’s one of the best beers I have tried from the widmer bros label. Nice middle of the road, solid drinker.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Perfumy, floral hop aroma. Similar to Widmer Hop Side in aroma. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. Following the Hop Side I was concerned that a lower alcohol, lower flavor beer might be a little subdued but I’m really impressed with this. Session qualities with a slight bready finish. Really nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite malty with a caramel sweetness, full with hints of butterscotch. Thin at first, but builds quickly. Hops are sidelined.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A slightly hazy, reddish-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is fruity and floral with notes of strawberry and orange. It has a medium body with a smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with slightly more bitter finish.
