3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy reddish orange with an average (1-2 fingers) white creamy head that pretty much lasted throughout, reducing slightly and possessing excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was on the mild side with a grain malt, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was lightly bitter with a nice caramel sweetness early on, it then become a tad bitterer with a moderate dose of grapefruit and a bold hoppy presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time after the swallow with a slight citrus peel hoppiness lingering for little while longer.
Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a dry and slightly watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a pretty solid Pale Ale. Although it was nothing overly special, it did have a really good taste and a great drinkability. I definitely would drink again...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Visual: Pours clear brown-amber without much of a head, a thin layer of retention, clusters of steady streams.
Nose: sweet light toasted barley malt (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: quenching crisp bite
Mid-palate: immediate resiny bitter hops, smooth tingly CO2, (lvl-3-sweetness), bittersweet metallic toasted barley malt
Finish: hints of grassiness, residual grainy dry malt
Summary: Rather simple, short length and quenching mouthfeel - not terribly interesting. A bit above average but not worth seeking out.

Iíve had this beer probably a dozen or so times over the years, purely out of my joint respect for both beer and the Menís Room program. I donít know why I never rated the beer. Seems like every time I have it, it is poured into plastic at some bar that probably never cleans their lines. Today, I find myself enjoying it under unique circumstances. Not only that, I have a hard time listening to the program now, due to the departure of my favorite cast member. If you ever read this Ben, I miss you buddy, and I hope I get the chance to buy you a beer some day to say thanks for all the laughs over the years. Youíve done the program twice as long as Iíve been legally allowed to drink this beer. This beer is memorable for me because when I am drinking it, there is usually an event that surrounds it. Itís usually quite refreshing on the hot days, but it can be rough on other occasions. A biting nutty malt, and it comes off as boozier than it claims to be. Caramely, but a bit papery as well. On a scale of bad to the best, itís yummy. Now that I finally uploaded a long thought out rating though, I might not see myself getting this much more. Alright beer Iíd say.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, the pour is burnt orange in color and slightly cloudy with a white head that lingures. The aroma is hops want to say cascade hops, but not completely sure. The taste is malts with hops. Not a lot of distinct flavors I can pick out. The finish is carbonated and thin rather watery. Overall a good hoppy red.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Aroma is tart, clove, citrus and roasted malts. The taste is toasted malts with hints of honey, clove and a slight earthiness. Well balanced overall but not mindblowing. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium frothy head thwt retains very well.
