Light and coppery in the glass. Lots of aroma -- floral, herbal, hopcit. No real malt backing to the beer keeps the hops front and center, but the beer and the hops lack richness and depth.

Pours amber with a light tan foamy head. Aroma is sour and just weird, not sure what it is. Has a medical, plastic aroma, weird. Tastes better but there is still something a bit off. Taste though is dominated by sweet caramel and roasted malts which give it good character. Just wish that smell was better.

Sweet almond-like chestnut smell. Watery mouthfeel and an off-putting dry finish.

Amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma has a fruity sweetness. Flavor is malty with some sweetness, fairly thin, some bitterness in the finish.

1.9 pinter. This guy bounced back and forth on me. One moment, a tolerable, not great, somewhat crispy, cigar hop flavour to one of stale hops and mildew. I could gather only a few instances where something would jump on the palate. I guess what I tasted was a little bit nutti and maybe some raisons and grass. Not very well balanced and a rather dry experience.

tomciccateri (1035) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 9, 2007
From a 22-ounce bottle. A deep amber color, very slight hoppy aroma, and fading white head. Even hop/malt flavor balance, mostly caramel flavor and non-assertive hop bitterness. Well carbonated. Clean finish. Average.

Pours a golden yellow with a thick off white head that retains pretty well. Traces of yeast sediment in the beer which gives it a low rating and the description does not read unfiltered. Smell is very weak and is pretty indicative of the weak hops used to make it. On one hand it is low in hops but it is smooth in malts and taste.
