I had picked up four of the six beers in this series during a Veterans Day beer run to State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD and during my trip to Norfolk, VA last weekend, I stopped in at Total Wine & More and scored to other two. I LOVE the label art, I gotta say!

I used an aggro pour to get a pseudo-cascade going, which formed two fingers of fluffy, rocky, tawny head with nice retention.Color was a slightly hazy Coppery-Brown (SRM = > 13, < 17). Nose seemed awfully malty for an APA, kind of a nutty, caramel scent. Hmmm. Mouthfeel was medium. Taste had a metallic tang and a malty sweetness that were just no bueno for the style. Finish was light, semi-sweet and a real swing and a miss overall. I did get some nice sticky lacing, however, and since I really bought it for the label art and it was inexpensive, I guess that I got my money's worth. YMMV.

The bottle says enjoy before 5/8/14. I did, its 3/28/14.

A- Rich copper color, clear, loads of active carbonation. Creamy, fluffy off white head lingers on and on leaving considerable amounts of lacing.

S- Damn. Some nasty yeast experiment gone wrong. Sweet fruity aromas.

T- Sour, sweet, tangy. Sourdough bread. Like no pale ale I've ever had. Not in a good way either. Not very enjoyable. Glad this beer is only 11.2 oz. and not 12. Next.

M- Fizzy, weird. Sorry this is gross. This rarely happens.

O- I just dumped this swill out. Too bad after high hopes from the appearance. False advertisement. This is not a pale ale. But on the bright side I have a new bottle cap for the collection.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Second on the trip through the Day of the Dead is the pale ale. It pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose is a slight breeze of mixed greens dripped with a couple drops of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more vigor and a touch of dry barley in the background, which then finds its opportunity to take control near the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, another offering that just reeks of phoning it in on a shoddy 1996 Nokia POS. Next up, the porter...

330 ml. bottle poured into a pint glass. Contract brewed? at Cerveceria Mexicana in Tecate under the Dia de los muertos/Day of the Dead line of Mexican craft beers. Pours quite clear and light copper in color, topped by a half inch of creamy off white foam and shows decent retention.

Aroma of light hops and some ruddy caramel. Not much as for depth,

Flavor follows the aroma with caramel and some chalky grain. Taste seems a bit old though no date code to be found for verification. Touch of citrus on a relatively brief finish.

Not bad but marginal in approach and light in delivery from all aspects.

Very rich red amber color and slightly cloudy. Very little head after the pour. Nothing special to note regarding the smell or the taste. Very bland almost Busch light like. The after taste did have some kick, some bite.

this would be a beer again that I wouldn't go out of my way to find or buy. Still one of the coolest labels out there.
