look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pint at Gourmet Pizza Shoppe in Redlands for five dollars on 11/2/08, reviewed from notes
A-Color is a deep red that is almost brown, one inch creamy as can be off white head that stays around for close to ten minutes, good retention, very nice lacing
S-Sweetness, heavy malt, various dark and tropical fruits, caramel, toasted bread, hint of spice, light hoppiness, toffee, and mild brown sugar
T-Starts off slightly dry, some toasted malt in the middle providing some chewy aspects, finish is sweet with both fruit and caramel malt, maintains its flavor as it warms and never changes much, enjoyed the balance in this one even though it was on the maltier side of the spectrum, really liked how the caramel bounced off the light hop character, went well with the unique honey mustard chicken pizza I was eating
M-Low level of carbonation that made this fuller but not syrupy, still a medium body, sweet, malty, and creamy mouthfeel, taste lingers for a few minutes
D-Could drink a few more pints of this no problem, sweetness might get to me after a few though, big reliance on malt, still not heavy on the stomach, ABV seems low around five percent but I am not sure exactly
I have never been a big fan of altbiers before but I had to give this new beer a try from the local brewery, I am glad I did because it was the best beer I had of this style, Ben Cook is a great brewer and we are starting to see this more and more, I will be drinking this each time I go out to visit friends in Redlands now, recommended

2.89/5 rDev -18.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with no code date visible into a pint glass and get 1/4 finger of head.
A: Pours a dark amber color and I get 1/4 finger of head that is gone almost immediately to leave a ring around the top of my glass. There is a little lacing but nothing to write home about.
S: Sweet malts and the smell of nuts.
T: Taste of sweet malt a little bitterness and finishes sweet. Overly sweet.
M: Medium-bodied and carbonated. It goes down ok.
O: This beer is just ok. This is not a beer I would go to again.
