   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
ARH (1121) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner & english pub glass. Aromas of caramel and dough emanate first, but then fade. A sugary, cola note pokes through next with a slight hint of a spice (clove?). A clear, crisp toasted bread aroma follows this, and finally, it settles on a grape-y, peach-y juice-like aroma. It should be noted that all these aromas are light, and, with the exception of the spice note I couldn’t quite pin, were fairly clear to an amateur such as myself (I justified an extra point beyond just average for that). The head is a notable, fluffy and soft, beaten egg-white texture (although light tan in color). The bubbles are a consistent micro-bubble that sits atop a clear, effervescent, honey-colored beer. There is a slight chill haze that, of course, fades as it warms. It leaves behind a moderate, micro-bubble lacing on the glass. The taste is a medium level of dry sweetness with a light bitter, and very very light sour note (lemon sour). This beer definitely has a dry quality to it that’s pretty evident in the initial palate-feel. It’s medium bodied, oily-light textured, with a soft, but zippy (soda-like) carbonation (in moderate amounts). The flavor is mostly a roasted nut, caramel, and grape candy character. It finishes with a blackened toast flavor which lingers, but it’s a mellow lingering.

ebone1988 (1658) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Aroma is sweet, malty, bready, fruity, potpourri maybe, interesting. Appearance is red, light tan head, hazy. Taste is bready, very very grainy, wheat chaff but not wheat, a weird grainy dry flavor I can’t put my finger on, it’s not bad though. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, grainy aftertaste. Overall, it’s good but I wish I could identify that flavor.

Bottle from Liquor Barn. This was my first Irish Ale. Lots of malt as advertised, pretty much nothing but cloying malt as far as I could tell.

MaltsterMash (31) - Kokomo, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Aroma wafts with a nice toasted bready flavor, could smell it while pouring the beer. Appearance has a clean filtered body that you can see through the glass, though had a very thin head. Medium carbonation with an oily palate. Boasts of hop aroma/taste but to me was very malt forward. A very clean enjoyable drinking beer.

ilovedarkbeer (2725) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2017

mambossa (327) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle directly from bottling line. Pristine Amber-copper pour. Nose of gently sweet and toasted malt, cereal, bit of spice. Flowery, gently citric noble hop. Now the sip. Very solid balance of ingredients. Malt has just enough depth while remaining on the dry side, and flowery hops meander with softened citrus rind to balance. In the world of extreme beers, this ones a great example of balance.

pinkzambia (1928) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Clear light brown color with a definite malty profile. Easy to drink although I’m not a huge fan of this style.
