Pours clear amber color with a brief head that leaves no lace. The aroma is not strong but packs in some complexity; malt, apple-butter, spice, cloves. The mouthfeel is crisp and thin, and all the flavor is on the back-end. A little cereal malt, some citrus, and grassy hops. Not bad.

KeefOz (856) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2014
BB 16/10/14. Poured a crystal clear deep reddish amber colour with 5mm of off-white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation high with medium sized bubbles. Aroma of malt, a trace of earthy yeast but no hops evident; malt increases as warms. Taste mildly malty, slightly sweet, a trace metallic but no hops evident; a bit bland. Light body. Malty with a slightly sweet finish. Ordinary.

a lot of amber malt, quite sweet, no real amarillo character as described, very very weak hop aroma, quite watery, overall boring.

Bottle. I was expecting more from this. Seemed pretty lifeless in the glass, and it’s very empty bodied with only a mild malt flavour

finol (2113) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle at Sue Ellen. Pours redish amber. Sweet maltyness with a hint of hops. Too clean and simple.

Frank (2784) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2014
This is sort of a malty American Pale Ale style. It smells pretty good with a decent amount of American hop character but it is just a little oversweet and bland when you taste it. Despite a bit of a metallic character in the finish, it is pretty drinkable so it’s not a total loss.

DroolYeast (211) - Odder, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2014
Fruity and sweet aroma. Amber colour, pours with small white head, virtually no head lasting. Taste is moderate bitter, fresh hops and fruits. Nice palate of hops. Overall a nice and surprisingly good beer.
