2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Redstone Liquors. Appearance is clear dark reddish-brown with nice sparkle, finger-width foamy light brown head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is subtle brown bread/molasses. Taste is sweet fruity quality, almost like grape juice, with late bready/molasses. Palate is medium bodied with average-to-lively carbonation and dry finish. Overall, aroma is mild and it’s too sweet and fruity for the style. Still, not an unpleasant drink.

Can from the Boise Co-op. Dark brown pour, small foamy head. Musty aroma, leaning towards sour. Taste also kind of sour, lacking the real bitter bite of the style. Musty throughout, more sweet than bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a mild Schwarzbier, almost a light version for those that do not like this taste variant. A decent beer but not with a lot of Pep or strong direction.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL can, pours a dark brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out toasted bready malt and toasted nuts. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malts and toasted nuts. Watery palate, with not much going on. Uninspiring.
