3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty average beer. Minimal aroma appreciated. Some carmel malts and noble hops in aroma. Not much malt in the flavor but enough to sustain it. A little to thin and not much distance in the finish. Better than macrobrew but not an exciting option.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes of salt water taffy, pepper flakes, mild caramel. The hue of the ale is a penny copper. A thin, frothy head paddles around on the surface of the beer. Insanely drinkable when thirsty, but if you’re in the sipping mood this brew has the muscle of a limp armed ballplayer. Hints of buttery lettuce and honey dont quite save this ale from jumping off a precipice of mediocrity.

12 oz. bottle from Capone’s. The pour is turbid dullish dark straw colored with about half an inch of clingy white head. Nose is malty, with mild honey and hops, some fruitiness. Tastes malty, with fruity apricotty notes, an overall semi-sweet palate, medium heft, not terribly complex. A decent sessionable beer, but not a world beater.

Clean tasting amber ale. One to drink on a summer day by the pool. Not Widmer’s best effort, but still very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light orange color with a very thin off white head. Sweet aroma with elements of honey, toasted almond and coriander. Despite all that there is a nice toned down bitterness in the initial flavor with the honey sweetness returning in the finish. Sticky texture with good carbonation. Not spectacular but a very easy drinking brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours an orange color with a large white head. The aroma is heavy on the biscuit malt with a little bit of grassy hops mixed in. The aroma is fairly faint overall. The flavor is heavy on the biscuit malt with a little bit of toffee mixed in. There is a slight grassyness from the hoppiness, but the beer is mainly about the malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Honey yellow-orange; no head. Malty, almost lager aroma; sugary and with a touch of honey. English ale flavor; very sweet and honey-laden. Not too saccharin. Very smooth and buttery palate. A sweet ale all around.

12 ounce bottle. Pours ambere with a decent biege head. Mild aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is on the sweet side, mainly the caramel and malt. Just a touch of hops. Pleasant and easy to drink.

There are malty flavors with some honey like sweetness and a tad of bitterness in the finish. Fairly well balanced and light. Easily drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle - Copper color. Head disappeared quickly. Slightly fruity aroma. Nice, soft bitter aftertaste. Smooth. This one is honestly hit or miss for me. I like it now, but sometimes I’d really rather have something else.
