GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 13, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was two fingers high and off white with decent retention. Aroma was of husky, syrupy grain with a little molasses. Slightly sweet with minimal hop bitterness of about 1 out of 10. The flavor was predominantly cereal grain with a some mushy raisin and subdued grassy hops. Bland and unoffensive, yes. Bad, not quite.

Not very good. Plain dry malt. Thin body, and unprocessed grain flavor. No hop presence. Light red color.

Picked up single 12-oz bottle at Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear light amber brew with a fast dissolving creamy white head that has some good lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, some toffee, light apple, and flowery hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with some light caramel malt, light fruity and a touch of apple peel. Finish is semi-sweet with a light apple bread aftertaste. A drinkable brew but nothing spectacular.

Watery. Not much hops . Malt, toasted grain and carmel. Average amber ale, a style produces an endless stream of bad offerings.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear deeper orange with about a minutes worth of white head. Nose found a solid dose of sweet malts (caramel and toffee) as well as dried apricots. Caramel and toffee were a tad roasty in the flavor... the apricots showed up again and were paired with hints of cherry and orange. Only bitterness found was in the floral form at the finish. Drier on the palate with adequate carbonation. Nothing exceptional, but certainly tasty and drinkable.
