2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Trader Joes (Short Pump), 2/23/10
Aroma: Nose has some caramel malts, bread, corn, and earthiness
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark orange color, light lace from a thin head
Flavor: Taste has some sweetness, lots of malty flavors, minimal hop presence
Palate: The body is light-medium, carbonation is fairly high, and the duration is quite short
Overall, this one is a fairly average beer by all accounts. The taste is OK, the nose is OK, the look is OK, and the beer is OK. I don’t really have much to add to that, nothing special, but drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pour was deeper amber with a half inch of wet, foamy head on top. Nose is malt, apricot, and apples. Taste is malt and apples. Another mediocre brew, though I would rather drink this then what my local bar serves ... nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Filtered red-amber color. Fluffy off-white head. Mild non-aroma, light toasty malt I guess. Straightforward light to medium body maltwise, very easy and drinkable. Displays a decent bitter hop balance, nothing spectacular certainly. Preferable to a lot of macro swill, but still mediocre at best.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled at maniac’s. Poursa clear pale amber with wispy thin tan head. Not bad on the aroma, kinda sweet malty caramel with a hint of corn in the background. Flavor is caramel malt, but light and grainy. Not all that great. Name is the best thing about this beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours a copper color with a small short lived head. Not much lacing. Aroma is very light, some hops and toffee. Taste is some pine hops with citrus notes and caramel malts. Finish is long and pleasantly dry. On the whole, there is not much to write about but dissent brew nevertheless.
