Transfer from BA review on 2-28-12 - Poured from bomber into pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a huge billowing white head. The head fades to give a very nice level of lacing Smell – Sweet aromas of lighter fruit and a bit of citrus meet the nose. They are really quite soothing aromas. These sweeter aromas then mix in with a bit of bready and yeasty aromas which complement the sweet nicely and round out the smell quite nicely. Taste – Breadiness of malt mixed with sweet caramel and fruit are quite heavy upfront. These lighten a bit as the taste moves on and bitter up ever so slightly. There is also a slight yeasty flavor that also develops with the bitter toward the middle of the taste. Toward the end, some alcohol taste comes into play, rounding out the taste experience and warming the mouth and body in a very nice way. Mouthfeel – The very creamy body coupled to the lower level of carbonation allow it to cling to and absorb into the tongue leaving a very warm and soothing feeling in the mouth. Overall – I quite enjoyed this beer. It is a bit on the sweeter side with nice sweet aromas and a very nice mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and rather relaxing.

Bottle, 8C. Gold with a white head that never quite disappears. Aroma of mild and grainy with some honey and floral notes. Sweet and grainy, some apricots. Gently leans towards dry. Modest bitterness, vague floral notes linger. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Interesting - strikes me as maybe a tad cheap on the ingredient side but rather well put together.

TXBadger (1214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Reviewed from notes: had this while in NOLA last year on draft. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Bread, a bit of sweetness, and come light floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a cereal note, probably due to the 2-row malt. Not bad.

Bottle pour. Clear golden in color. Large foamy head. Crisp hoppy aroma. Clean initially, but a very sharp bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (445) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. A- Grains, hay. A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Corn, grains, slightly sweet, malty, subtle bitterness. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- For being 8%, the alcohol isn’t noticeable. It really just tastes like an average lager. A little on the sweeter side, but far from being anything to get excited about.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of grassy hops, bready malt and hint of citrus fruit. Body is full and slightly crisp. Taste is of sweet biscuit malt partially balanced by grassy hops and alcohol. Alcohol is noticable. Finish is long, semi-dry. Somewhat sweet for me.

boto (1826) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2014
22oz bomber: This one pours a clear yellow color. There was a bit of a white foamy head on it that leaves some lacing. The aroma is OK. A bit of sweetness to it, with some breadiness. Maybe some faint banana in there. The taste is pretty good. A bit of dryness and no sweetness. A touch thin for an 8% beer. Some malts, a hint of spices. OK, but I expect more in an 8% beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. pale yellow pour with a white fizzy head that fades. The aroma has some toasted biscuit malt character and corn, perhaps. I don’t believe it is an adjunct but it has some of those qualities on the nose. Crisp hoppiness too. Light body. The taste does have a sort of pilsener feel to it along with toasted biscuit and clean, dry hops.
