Sorry Erik, I haven't had time to try them yet. I'll try to get to tasting them Sunday evening or next week. I'm out of the pocket for the weekend.

Default Cream Ale

Ok here goes:

Vanilla Cream Ale

Aroma:
Faint malt notes, no hops present on nose. Mild and pleasant. 8/12

Appearance:
A little darker than I expected for the style. No head retentiion or lacing to speak of, little to no chill haze. 2/3

Flavor:
This beer has a lite malt flavor, balanced well with very little hop bitterness. The vanilla sweetness hits on the finish, and is very good. 16/20

Mouthfeel:
Very smooth and creamy, with a nice residual sweetness. 3/5

Overall:
SWMBO likes this one. Sweet and smooth with good carbonation. Perfect for a BMC conversion beer. Well Done! 8/10

Total:
37/50

Default Vok

Vanilla Orange Kolsch

Aroma:
a unique spicy aroma overshadows the malt and hops(which are light in a Kolsch anyway). Very subtle but pleasing orange and vanilla undertones on the nose. 6/12

Appearnace;
Crystal Clear, straw gold color with a nice small white head, that left good lacing through to the finish. 3/3

Flavor:
I was expecting a Kolsch with some fruity spice, but I didn't get it. What yeast did you use? This is a unique flavor profile that is has strong spice, fruit, and a hidden bitterness at the finish. 15/20

Mouthfeel:
True to style, smooth and crisp, lightly carbonated with no technical flaws. 4/5

Overall:
This is a technically sound beer with good flavors, howevere it isn't my normal preference. 6/10

Total:
34/50

Default Wheat

Coriander Wheat


Aroma:
Nice spicy aroma with hints of clove and coriander. It is very enticing. 9/12

Appearance:
Super good clarity. I was expecting it to be hazy. It has a nice straw gold color. there was little head, and very little lacing. 2/3

Flavor:
Oh this is good. The flavor is clean and crisp. It is very light, and there are no flavor flaws present. 19/20

Mouthfeel:
Even with out a head or lacing it still has a good carbonated feel, with nice body.
5/5

Overall:
This is a great beer. I want the recipe! and another bottle to compare my attempt to. This would be a great session beer for me an the crew. 9/10

Total: 44/50
