2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 After suffering a cross-country trek with the family, we arrived at Devilís Tower. It was true. Imagine my glee as we perused the trinkets in the gift shop, as I spied DEVILíS TOWER LAGER. I plopped down the requisite cash, and hoisted my prize back to the motel room. After my many sufferings I was ready to pour this down my neck and let my worries fall far behind me. Well, I am sure you all remember the classic scene in "Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind" with the UFOís plopping down on Devilsí Tower...well do you? Do you? After traveling ONE ZILLION LIGHT YEARS those rascally aliens needed relief. But if they would have had a DEVILíS TOWER LAGER they would have lit out in a heartbeat and reduced our planet to ashes. The only viable explanation for them lingering as long as they did, is that the locals were getting them all Blatzed up with Valís finest. And if thatís good enough for shapeshifting reptilian entities from the far reaches of the Universe, itís good golly-gee-wizz, good enough for me. And you too! Thatís how I roll bitches.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark, hazy, gold with a decent, foamy, white head that lasts. Taste is of malt, floral, grain, caramel and some hops. Has a nice light sweetness to it. Similar aroma. Some bitterness in the finish. The body is a little slick and watery. Good, but it is missing something.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter amber with a short-lived cap of loose white head. The aroma picked up an odd berry jam impression with some vanilla and caramel accents.. lots of seeds that also gave some sourness.. really odd. The flavor was all about the blackberry jam with a little vanilla accenting.. not a whole lot of bitterness to note.. dry finish with residual sweetness. Lighter-bodied and sweet on the palate with a slick feel.. some berry tartness as well.. non-offensive, but certainly bizarre and nothing to bring me back for another.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lightly hazed dark amber color with a taller light beige head. Light caramel and a bit funky floral aroma. Hints of tropical fruit and perhaps a bit of infection. Light toasted sugar in the front. Bits of tropical fruit and a hint of sourness. Sourness is not overly distracting, but is a bit out of place. Just a bit of floral bitterness. A bit nutty in the linger.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Unfiltered amber-brown color with a big foamy off-white head. Funky sweet aroma with a touch of earthy hops. Somewhat tangy. Medium-bodied. Some mild amber malt notes, balanced out by the odd tartness and slight hoppy crispness. Sweet malty aftertaste with a touch of cherry twang. Seems a touch off, but Ambers are strange creatures.
