Love the stained glass look on the label though I would like to read more about the brand on it. Pours a light orange with minimal head. Has some of the dubbel spice to it. A touch viscous. Some orange notes in the background too. A bit of a bready cinnamon roll aroma. Enjoyed it.

4oz draft pour. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma was some notes of bready malts, yeast notes. Flavor was sweet malts, bready notes, yeast character. Wished it was a bit more clean, but it was okay overall.

to me this had some pretty good body and tasted brown like caramel with a bit of malt syrup and a fruit flavor mellowed well. seems yeasty enough. a bit of gravy like flavor that i enjoyed. there you go. distinct hop flavor near the finish.

Pale and watery. Nothing remarkable in the taste. Poured half of it out. Gimmicky.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A vigorous pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a three finger thick, tan colored head. The beer is a rich copper tinged, amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, almost metallic copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of spicy, sweet crystal malt; English biscuit character, lightly toasted brown grain, a touch of whole-grain spiciness and a sweet, caramelized character are each noticeable, but the latter accentuates a hop character that leans towards berries and ruby-red grapefruit. As the beer warms up a touch of stale malt character starts to come out.
Light bodied, slightly sweet with a malty finish that suggests at caramelized hay, sweet whole grain crackers, and a touch of cracker like pale malt character. Soft citrus notes and a berry like character are noticeable throughout. A touch of stale malt character has not quite gotten to cardboard, but perhaps leans towards stale brown bread that hasn’t yet lost all of its moisture. A toasted, whole grain character comes out a bit more as the beer warms up.
Much more hoppy than I was expecting, though in truth this is still on the light side. Not bad, and I wouldn’t mind trying one that might be a bit more on the fresh side of things.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a medium-sized head and malty aromas that have a grain silo edge to them. Flavor is fairly sweet, but nice. Caramel and honey buns with a little bit of oranges and grassiness.

It almost tastes like a Scotch Ale, but it’s not. Malty, sweet, maybe a bit too much, but a nice substitute for a higher quality beer.
