      Overall Impression (2½)
      Red-brown, almost opaque, nice white head. Fruity aroma, hint of caramel. Good body, good hop flavor. Bitterness grows and grows right through the finish. A little drier and stronger, and it would make a decent IPA. (They do brew an IPA here, but they're out of it today.)

      Dark brown-black, nice tan head. Coffee aroma, with some spicy hops. A little thin, which is OK, but it tastes very "young"...like a couple more weeks in a cold tank would smooth out the balance. I think there's a real good Stout in here somewhere.

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Yellow, thick haze, high carbonation, no head. All I can smell is the lemon. Malty, wheat flavor, sweet but not too sweet. No esters whatsoever. Clean sweet finish with a bit of hop flavor late.
