2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was not terribly impressed here, just like every other average amber ale out on the market. Quickly diminishing head, with a very opaque amber coloring and no lacing. Off balance and acidic, astringent and piney. It could have once again been a bad bottle, but not something I would be inclined to try again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent amber ale with more than average hop content. A malty floral aroma and a musky finish, semisweet mouthfeel. Not too bad, but very average.

Caramel flavor, a little nutty with light spice tones and light hop bitterness in the finish. Very light in body and flavor, disappointing from a somewhat respectable brewer, more like a Karl Strauss.

Rocky, frothy and lasting head with sticky lace; blandish, pale amber in color. Texture is syrupy at times, watery in others. Hints of spicy hops; grassy and slightly bitter. Light wood notes. Very mild sweetness. Overall, mildly flavored.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Herbacious nose and orange in color. Lacking in any real flavor, possibly flat. A little fizziness on the palate but thats about all the life this one could muster.

Clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit with some sweetness. Taste is soft grapefruit, moderately sweet, peach. Overall, an innocuous beer.

Pretty much lawnmower beer, but would be quite good on a hot day. Peach-amber color, lots of sweet malts in the nose. Flavor is a bit tart with grapefruit, good sweetness. Like the palate, very soft and smooth. Nothing exciting, but good for what it is.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately yeasty (dough, sweat), lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of orange. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very yeasty smelling, and the citric quality doesn't suit my tastes. Sleep inducing, much like my rating style.
