2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light amber with a small head. Some cardboard and apples. Caramel. Knackered malts. Taste is pretty rough. Sickly apple. Spent grain. Junk bread. Sort of harsh toastiness. Just tastes artificial and past its best. Light body, very active carbonation. Not good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange-tan color with a large foamy-soapy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy, corny and malty with a hint of toffee and faint sour fruits. The flavor was tangy and sour with a bit of bread, honey, toffee and sour fruits. Medium length tangy, sour and fruity finish. Medium body. Uninspiring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark amber-orange, standard "American head" .. drinks as you’d expect, rich with caramel malt, and a nice fall, woodsy outdoorsiness. Not a bad interpretation. (#5302, 10/27/2013)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Wegmans, King of Prussia, PA. A brilliant golden amber colour with a fast fading cream head; simple malty aroma - almost like a brown ale; straightforward malty flavour, slightly metallic towards the end; and a malty finish.
This reminds me of the time, many years ago, when I was training to be an Analytical Chemist and one of the exercises we were set was to identify and measure the metals contained in a sample of Newcastle Brown Ale from a metal can - we didn’t know at the time that the supervisor had spiked the sample, so were rather alarmed to discover that it contained lethal quantities of tin! Anyway this is probably how it would have tasted.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Bearden Beer Market. Coppery orange, thin but sturdy white head. Smells like caramel and white bread toast, which is also a pretty good description of the flavor. Finishes with a subtle hop bite.
