3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 12 oz bottle from a variety pack case. A gift from my loving wife on our anniversary: Color is reddish-amber with a medium, fading off-white head. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty. Flavor starts light caramel sweet with some wheat and a hint of cherry followed by a light, somewhat dry citrus bitterness. Medium body is smooth with moderate carbonation.

12oz bottle: pours dark amber in color with quick fading white head. aroma of slighty sweet malt. flavor has a fair amout of malt to it what an added black cherry like taste not strong but there. not a bad beer but nothing special the 07 was much better. i like how the guy 2 down said he poured it down the sink, i wonder out of the 1173 beers he rated didnt get tossed? because this one isnt that bad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Faint aroma and flavor for that matter. This one didn’t do too much for me. Slightly malty with a little hops...most it has going for it is the appearance. Pours a nice clear red color with a fair off white head. Head didn’t last too long and there was virtually no lacing to speak of. Not much to the finish. Not terribly impressed.

pours a nice amber/brown with light head. Tastes a bit thin (due to low carbonation?) to me but otherwise pretty good - nice chewy wheaty taste with very slight hints of vinegar

Pours amber with a small white head. Bready malt nose, spicy and earthy hops. Fairly heavy body for what I thought would be a bit more crisp and estery.

12oz bottle pours out a dark amber or maybe crimson??? Topped with a small white head. A nice aroma of malt and light wheat. Tast of thick malt a little hops and a touch of sweetness. not to bad.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark copper. if held up to an iridescently light it is almost the color of rose gold, beautiful. Head is about 4 fingers right after the pour with small almost nitro looking bubbles. This recedes to a half finger head that remains throughout the drink. Smell is light floral hops and dry biscuit like malts. Taste is very light floral hops with a strong wheat backbone. Very thick wheat taste at the back of the throat with some banana like chewyness. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy with very low carbonation. Its pretty unique. This beer has a very smooth but big (thick) finish. Not too bad. Almost the definition of a session beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brass-amber color with some froth of head. Does not remotely resemble a wheat beer, and not at all cloudy. More akin to an amber in appearance and a Britt pale ale in aroma, flavor, and body. Dank, stagnant Britt hop aroma, with a stagnant hop flavor.
