      Package: draught
      Place: at the brewery
      Score: 19 points
      Overall Impression (3½)
      Dark yellow opaque, good white head. Strong clove ester. REAL smooth. Wheat flavor, esters, and hops are EXTREMELY well-balanced. A little dry in the finish, but a real pint-pounder. Brought a gallon of this home…the box sprang a leak, so I charged it up in a Cornelius keg....which also leaked.

      Overall Impression (3)
      Golden, low carbonation, OK head. Nice malty nose, some clover? Malty in flavor, somewhat bitter in finish. I'd either boost the body, or more likely cut the bitterness to get a better balance.

  • American-Style Amber/Red Ale

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Deep amber, some haze, good head. Smells like Brach's orange candy slices! What kind of hops are these? Thick, caramel and brown malts. Hops are quick in the middle, finish is malty and sweet.

      Score: 12½ points
      Overall Impression (2½)
      Amber, low carbonation and head. Fruity aroma, but subtle. Big beer, body, and bitterness. Lots of caramel, maybe some diacetyl, and a hint of over-the-top Tettnangs (bah). Weird astringent finish.

  • Classic Irish-Style Dry Stout
