2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Not sure what to expect from this one. The note on the packing suggests its a Vienna-style lager yet it also clearly states it is an ale. Reddish-brown with thin white head. Aroma is of chocolate and yeast rolls. Taste is sweet with a roasted edge but a minimal of esters. Where are the hops? The body is quite thin and the finish is indistinct. Let’s put it this way, if this beer was offered at my local Mexican restaurant, I would order it with my meal but otherwise it’s unimpressive.

Bottle from decaturstevo. Thanks Steve. Pours a clear brownish amber with a small fizzy off white head. There was a slight malty aroma with a hint of citrus there as well. Very easy to drink, light body and no off flavors. There is a malty sweetness with some citrus in the finish. I don’t get much bitterness at all, except late in the finish.

Bottle shared with shigadeyo. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate toasted caramel and tart citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

We searched for this one when we were in Memphis - the brewery is named after a town not too far from my home and these beers aren’t available in MS yet.
I was rather disappointed with this selection. It pours a medium brown without much head. Not much in the away of aroma and the taste was very weak and watery.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Gsylord Opryland in Nashville - poured a dark brownish amber in color with a small whitish head. Does not have a strong aroma, but is slight of some malt with not hops to speak of. Too carbonated. Body is very light to non-existent. Flavor is somewhat malty, but that is slightly overpowered by the corn adjunct taste. Not totally unpleasant, but disapointing.

Brownish copper, no head. Smoky, earthy aroma, with a bit of black walnuts. Nutty, creamy flavor, with atouch of caramel and chocolate. Crisp finish. Well made and tasty, but not really my style.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Aroma was a bit subdued by the smoky environment but a general maltiness was evident. A little lack luster in appearance with no head on a translucent brown body making it look a bit like dirty water. No lacing was present. Malty nutty flavor with a light body and thin mouth feel.

The two perros ale had sort of a weak smell to it. The taste was that of a regular ale. Since i am a little more into the IPA’a this was kind of weak. Not a bad tast or drinkability just not the usual kick i like. But not a bad beer at all.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. malts of over-ripened fruit and forest floor in the winter. almost a fermented corn aroma. pours like a nice cafe americano. taste is a bit of tangy fruit, grapefruit tartness, and mild hoppy presence. the finish is a bit weak, but the hops attempt to pull it through with the tangy tartness still lingering in the background. trust me, it’s not the best middle tn has to offer. i live here, i know.
