2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle received via Secret Santa. Copper with very little head and no retention. Some corn husk, fruity notes, and caramel in the scent. While unexciting, this isn’t too bad and goes down easily. Fruity and malty sweetness, some earthy undertones, a touch of grass, and light bitter hops in the finish. A drinkable Amber Ale.

Pours amber with a white head. Smells earthy, some light spicy hints. Tastes of caramel, some light spice, vegetal finish. Tastes like a watered down Amber Ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A caramel dominated lager with hints of the minty glacier hop. Not too bad. Easy drinking, different from something like Yuengling. I’d buy it again at this really fancy price of 1 buck.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a capped 12oz bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to Drake for sharing. Pours bright copper orange with a thick white head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is caramel malt forward with a touch of spicy hops, and a touch of spicy straw. The flavor is about the same, pretty light with some caramel malt and dusty straw with just a bit of bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium dusty, lightly spicy hops finish.

Dark orange/amber in color with medium to small head and minimal lacing. Aroma has nice spicy yeastiness but mostly amber, caramel malts, and a little fruitiness. Flavor has strong caramel malts and slight hoppiness, a little toasted bread, and a bit of citrus. Strong flavor, yet easy drinking and very delicious!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Drake at RBWG on Friday night at the roach motel bottle share. Thanks, Drake, for the Polotmavy! My only missing beer style until this moment. Pours a clear deep gold color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Lots of malts - caramel, Munich, wheat - with straw, spiced table crackers, and cardboard. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not bad. Glad I got to try the style finally.
