3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours full amber with a small off-white head. Fair amount of lacings.
Taste is like a malted-up IPA. Very smooth and tasty. Alcohol (7.2%) is well hidden. Palate is very smooth.. Drinability is good considering the 7.2% abv.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours multi colored like a black and tan with a small but holding
off-white head. Aroma of full bodied hops and bitter and sweet malt.
The flavor is like a good ipa with a nice malt backbone and a tinge of
sweetness. Really superb beer. Texture and body are full without being
too heavy. Body is mild and a tiny bit creamy. Lacing is heavy and
intricate. The beer finishes with a becon for the next sip.

12oz bottle from BevMo Mission Valley. Pours a clear medium amber color with a 2 finger off white head. Nose was quite hoppy and had some sweet malt in the back drop. This is by far the best beer I’ve had from Widmer.....good stuff!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured reddish with a white head. Aroma was spicy with herbal hops. A little bolder than most amber ales, but the taste was somewhat off. Seemed very unbalanced with an awkward sourness. Cracker malt flavors with tangy hops that seemed not fresh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ilovedarkbeer. Pours with a hazy amber body and an off-white head that goes. Aroma of citrus and spruce like hops, and a decent malt presence, a bit catty. Seems like an attempt at SN Celebration. Taste is hoppy and a bit catty with some citrusy pinesol. Kind of creamy...sort of.

12oz bottle: appearance is a dark amber brown with quick fading off white head, aroma has a good amount of hops in it with a hint of malt, flavor is very hoppy for an amber but none the less still very good. glad to see them bring back the W06 under a different name.
