      Overall Impression (2)
      Dark amber, good head. Malt, smoke and chlorophenols aroma. Pretty phenolic. There's a VERY good beer under here somewhere. Very much like Portland MacTarnahan's. "Whiskey beer" ... sorta like making a beer out of a whiskey mash, no distillation. Filled out a marketing survey yesterday at Buffalo Bill's in exchange for a free pint of this stuff.

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Red, thick head. Diacetyl aroma, sweet. Tastes sweet, like brown sugar. (Note: this is reportedly an all-malt beer.) Very very drying.

      Red, ok head, flat. Sweet caramel aroma. Good caramel flavor, "brown" flavors, and lots of alcohol. Thick. Quick bitterness in finish. Got a taste first...the way it SHOULD be!

      Bright pale-golden. Moderate carbonation. Thick head.

      INTENSELY skunky.

      Light body, fizzy. Sweet grainy malt. Really skunky. Sweet grainy finish.
      Overall Impression (1)
      Other than the mercaptans, it's a slightly bigger version of the Light. If you buy it, buy it from a closed case.

      Score: 13½ points
      Overall Impression (2½)
      Golden, moderate carbonation, good head. Hint of hop aroma, more than a hint of mercaptans. Good body, good malty flavor...with some corn, maybe? OK bitterness in finish, but kinda sticky at the same time.
