dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear dark copper, thick bubbly white head with thick lacing. Light fruits, metallic grain, slight spice, honey, thick cereals on the nose. Dry lager malts, touch of pine, honey sweetness on the finish and a surprising bitter linger.... Though as it opens up it improves, the metallic flavours go and there’s more of that lovely dry toasty character coming through. Still a little too bitter though. Very drinkable, if not perfect.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
ciaranc (949) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 30, 2013
Amber copper in the glass, head doesnt stick around. Caramel nose, with some doughy yeast and bready, toasty malt. More bready malt in the flavour, with some grapefruit and a little spice. Theres some sweetness hovering in the background which come more to the fore before the finish. Then its the hops turn to arrive, theres some nice understated bitterness to the finish. Lightish in body. Quite a lot of carbonation there, and the mouthfeel is quite sticky. Very drinkable.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2012
This brew pours an orange-amber color with a medium bubbly off-white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and slight hops. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, mildly bitter hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
