cmacklin (212) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a large, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet, smooth aroma of caramel, malt and fruit. Sweet flavour of malt with notes of caramel and a peachy orange fruit finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

An "OK" amber... A little hoppy but nothing separates this beer from the pack.

Reasonable aroma, red/opaque appearance, with a confident/bold taste and warm finish. I rate it in my top 25% of all beers tasted overall.

12oz bottle - pours a deep reddish amber . Strong malt aroma with hints of herbal hops . Taste is not you average amber , bigger malt punch with a nice bitter hop balance . Very sessionable . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eh. Poured amber brown. Malts in the nose. Taste was way too sweet for me. Otherwise, just pretty plain.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a large orange-white head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with a note of toasted caramel. The flavor was sweet, malty and tangy with toasty caramel, honey and a bit of ripe fruits. Medium length finish. Smooth body. Pleasant and easy drinking.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 I did not care for this beer...nose is terrible...mouth is to much malt...just not my style at all....now that i tried a second time this was way better ice cold in frozen mug....ratings have been adjusted.

ZacM612 (84) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Reddish amber with fizzy head. Aroma of caramel, light hops, and a little fruit. Flavor is similar with some citrus. A good thirst-quenching smooth beer.

kaser (2504) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Draft pour at brat stop. Clear red with white head. Smooth and wheaty. Light. Mild citrus flavor. Carmel notes. I like it for an amber beer. They serve this right in a frosted cold mug

On draught. Pours red with a fine creamy head. Aroma is light caramel. Taste is dry, slight caramel, little hops. Thin mouthfeel.
