2.15/5  rDev -34.5%

A: Nice amber color. Thin amount of head that didn't stick around long. Left patches of lace here and there

S: Couldn't really get much from it. Hints of sweetness but couldn't tell it was very weak.

T: Again, very weak. Thinking I picked up an old bottle or something. Some toasted malt and very light sweetness but having a hard time deciphering. Tastes like a watered down light lager.

M: Carbonation was so-so, again not much flavor jumping out here. Stronger alcohol taste with the mouthful but flavors just aren't popping out at me. Really not sure why. Think I def. had an old bottle.

O: Not very impressed. Pretty disappointed. Couldn't find a "Best by..." date but im guessing its an old bottle. Otherwise its just a very plain beer. Would consider trying one more time to put speculation to rest.

- usda organic. bottled 11/11/11. consumed 10/18/12.

A: A monstrous mushrooming head builds in the vessel to a four finger statue. The coloring is a cranberry juice with a strong sense of carbonation. The head was long lasting, the lacing not so much.

S: The nose yielded stale bread, grains, cola and some amber malt. Lackluster and unappealing.

T: Flavor of watery caramel and watered down cola. Sweet, with an extract like twang. Nothing really else to report here.

M: The mouthful was seltzer like, strong and fizzy, foamy texture, light bodied turning a bit washy soon after.

O: Not sure if age was a factor here, carbonation was as strong as ever which hints otherwise. Sweet, with an extract like twang, boring nose and flavor wise can't see this getting much better. pass.

2.95/5  rDev -10.1%

12 oz.

Pours a clear honey amber color, white suds for a lacing.

Smells like buttered bread and light brown sugar.

Slightly woody bready malt flavors with a mild citrus tartness.

Medium body with mildly prickly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

An average but sessionable ale. Could be better, not very wheaty and the tartness doesn't fit with the rest of the beer. Would probably pair with food okay. Glad I tried it but it's pedestrian.

2.98/5  rDev -9.1%

I picked this up as a M&M 6pack from Binny’s in Downer’s Grove, IL in summer 2012.

Pours a clear, medium brown/amber color with a perfect off-white head. Some slight scents of wheat and malts, but nothing overpowering in the smell. Taste is quite mellow and very light. You get some hints of raw wheat but that it is. The actual taste is fine, there just need to be more flavor behind it. Overall a weak beer that needs work, but I guess it’s all about marketing it as a USDA organic in the end.

Best Before: 02/26/13

Pours a clear, red garnet with with a creamy, foamy white head with nice lacing.

Some caramel, biscuit malts. Faint floral hops. Fairly subdued in both aroma and taste.

Medium body, with mild carbonation.

A decent beer, the flavor profile was pleasant, but seemed a bit subdued.

3.03/5  rDev -7.6%

Pour into a pint glass from bottle. Color is a nice red. Head is small and quick to dissipate.
Odor is pretty faint. Not much to it really, come malt and maybe a little wheat or grain.
Taste was kind of average. A little flat as far as mouth feel goes and tastes mild and carbonated.
Overall it is a pretty refreshing beer. It just lacks some of the substance.

12oz bottle (bottled 11/11/11) courtesy of Wasatch...thanks John! Poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A - Pours with good clarity on a quite dark amber color. A finger of foamy off-white head exhibits decent staying power before falling off to a small collar and inconsistant lacing on the glass.

S - Aroma is sweet malt, sugary, a bit soapy, grainy and doughy. Hops at pretty much non-existant at least to my senses.

T - Flavor matches the aroma well. Sweet malt, doughy and grainy...plenty of wheat presence. Again, not much for hops here. There is a slight overall sweetness here so I suppose the hops are doing something to balance this out, but it is really a stretch to get any noticeable flavor presence.

M - Lighter body, lightish/medium carbonation as well. Carbonation is there, but the beer is still a bit lifeless overall and has a bit of a watery feeling to it.

O - Overall...ok, just doesn't really stand out in any way from other beers out there. Flavors are a bit dull and weak in intensity with a lifeless carbonation. Drinkable for sure, but nothing special about this one.

3.06/5  rDev -6.7%

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 20, 2014.

It looks very nice with its medium amber, mahogany color and long lasting off-white head. I love beers that look this way.

But after that it becomes pretty routine. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted biscuit, and clean and crisp finish

Light to medium body.

The flavor has an expected sweet toasted malty character. I'm not sure if that could change. But it does not overwhelm. Yet it is also nothing extraordinary.

Pretty straightforward pale ale taste with its biscuit malts, clean, hop balance and sweetness. Nothing that sets it above the fold. Drinkable for sure.

3.08/5  rDev -6.1%

Poured a 1" slightly custard head with medium life. The body is beautiful, a rich clear amber. Nice smell of malt and even fig. The taste is far milder than the smell hints to come, but pleasant and a little on the sweet side. Very easy to drink. The body is a little watery.

My favorite thing about this beer is the label showing Hazel, who looks pretty similar to Sarah Palin. I chose this over other options specifically so I could give it to the in-laws as a laugh.
