look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Tasted from a 12 oz bottle bought in New Mexico.

L - Pretty copper color and very clear. Off-white head is low but stable as a thick sheet and sticky lacing.

S - Aroma is faint and hard to distinguish. All I get is a low cracked grain aroma and a low earthy hop note. There's nothing negative about the aroma, but there just isn't much going on.

T - Malt dominates the flavors, with a strong crystal malt twang and then some cracked grain. In the finish are some earthy, herbal hops. There is not much depth or complexity to the flavor profile.

F - Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Low to medium hops bitterness. No alcohol heat.

O - This is an OK, generally average amber ale. There is nothing wrong with it, but it is not distinctive in any way, either.

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

A: Pours a dark color with no head what so ever.

S: Odd rich fruity figs plums raisinswith licorice taste not expected at all.

T: Same as smell this is not a bad thing just not expecting this for the style.

M: Medium bodied to heavy, no bubbles streaming to top or anything happening here.

O: Maybe with the right dish would be good but ok at best in this glass today.

Pours a nice clear amber color with a small white head made of small bubbles that dissipates rapidly. Sweet bouquet, toffee notes but not overpowering. The Alien is sweet from sip to swallow but the aftertaste is sour and very slightly metallic. This beer is not very refreshing but is modest alcohol contest and its lack of palate complexity do not make it particularly hard to drink.
