3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Sanctuary in Iowa City, IA. Clear light brown with an orange tint and a thick off white head that left a sheet of lace on the glass. Nice malty caramel aroma and flavor accented by sprucy hops. Modest carbonation makes for a very smooth finish. Solid brew.

From bottle. Sweet aroma with hops. Little syrupy also. Copper appearance with good carb, but a very quick disappearing head. The beer has a slightly sweet taste, but a nice crisp bitter finish. A little metallic on the palette.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a fairly small white head. Aroma is pretty tame and not much to write home about. Taste was mildly that of malts but is easily offset with the hops. This beer is easy to drink sitting around a bar or can go well with a meal.

Poured from a 500ml can from LCBO. Bright amber with a nice head and decent lacing. Full bodied, great malt/hop balance and a nice bitter finish. Very smooth and easy drinking, I like this.

Bottle. Pours amber with thin head. Nice balance of malt and hops, producing a great taste with a dry and bitter finish. This is a great beer for this style, like a kicked up Bass Ale. Easy drinking, too.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright, round, beer-coloured, this is another standard. Delightfully hoppy with a citrus bite. Quite wet in the mouth for a beer of its strength. Not at all sweet but neither dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ah, nothing impressive here. Poured a golden to amber color with an ok head that provided some level of lacing. The aroma was of honey, grass, and caramel. The flavor followed suit, and really wasnít all that special, definitely not worth import prices. Mouthfeel was right on par for the style. Snore.
