look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into an English "pot" pint glass.
Dark amber/brown in color, with a short head of tan foam.
Aroma-Spicy malt
Taste-Toasted spicy malt, some faint fruitiness,and a faint floral hop note comes spiraling in at the end. Not much in the character or balance department. Best bet would be as a food beer.

Trying the Schmohz Treasure Chest Ale. The beer pours a clear amber with very littel white head that does not seem to be lacing all that well. The smell is mostly sweet caramel malt. The taste includes mostly malt with not alot of hops....but enough to balance. The mouther is a light to medium body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good session beer that is worthy of trying.

The ale was a dark, reddish color and slightly hazed with a thin tan head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was very inviting: spicy, sweet malt and some faint butterscotch.
Overall, this was a well balanced ale with a refreshingly sweet flavor with enough hops bitters to keep it interesting, refreshing and very drinkable. There are hints of caramel in the aftertaste. It does a more than decent job of representing the style.
The body was medium with a slightly thick mouthfeel. The carbonation was appropriately restrained for the style.
It is often difficult to find a domestic ale that is a good representative of the style, this one does a decent job.

Pours a dark red with an off white head that has okay retention and some lacing to it. The smell is a hint of caramel, some earthy hops and sweet malts. The taste is floral hops followed by some caramel with some apple and kiwi juice in it. Than follows with some sweet malts and a sweet syrupy taste that ends with some more floral hops and kiwi. The mouthfeel feels like a watery yet sticky feel that is pretty easy to drink. This is only the fourth Schmohz beer I have tasted and so far it is the best one.

Presentation: Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a shaker pint glass. Label is a sticker and shops a buxom pirate lady with one foot propped on a treasure chest. No freshness dating.

Appearance: Pours with just over 2 finger of light tan head. This settles lowly to a thin yet complete cap of foam. The beer itself is a bright mahogany and shows moderate activity. Some sediment remains in the bottle.

Smell: Caramel malt with bready undertones and hints of butterscotch.

Taste: Oh god, this is horrendous. Tangy tartness and sourness with a lingering bite. Tartness is strong enough that it is reminiscent of a lemonade. Terrible.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation level. Body is thin.

Drinkability: Things were going well up until I took a sip. Drain pour.
