2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance- moderate light mocha tan head. Some lacing (not a lot). Crystal clear mahogany brown.
Smell- clean. Spicy, sweet malts, light ginger notes, clove.
Taste- light biscuits and malt up front, feint sweet spices on the back end. Not too much going on here.
Mouthfeel- very light body. Creamy. Little/light carbonation.
Overall- a nice easy drinker. Decent session ale. Would prefer it with food.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured into half pint imperial glass. Thoroughly drinkable get-you-through-the-afternoon type of beer. Malty, malty, malty. All things considered I’d prefer a genuine English bitter to these mild malt bombs that seem to be America’s answer to a question that’s already been answered (what’s the ideal session beer?).

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a burnt orange with a half finger off white head which fades to just a little lacing. Arona is to toasted bready malts, sweet malts, caramel, tofee, light grassy hop, and light spicy hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel, and a mostly sweet, medium-finish. Overall, a average but drinkable & sessionable mild.

A good tasting beer, that leaves a good after taste too. I bought one bottle at a place that lets you create your own six pack from a selection of about 15 didfferent beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark ruby almost brown pour from Roar in Allentown. Aroma of malt, cloves, spice, caramel, bread. Flavor is heavy on the malt, slightly sweet and a bit spicy. Certainly mild. Low ABV but the high malt content prevents it from being a true sessionable ale.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark caramel color with an off-white head that settles to a film, some lacing. Aroma of toasted malts & some sweetness. Medium body, taste of toasted malt with almost no hop presence. The toasted flavor continues through the finish with a little bitterness. Not crazy about this one, but not bad...average.
