Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Pours a nice clear auburn like color. Nice sweet nose of toffee, pear, sweet biscuity malt, and a hint of granny smith apple. Nice balanced flavor that exudes a strong pear like fruity sweetness as well as a light dose of floral hops, banana, and biscuity malt. Nice light floral hoppiness on the finish with a light hint of the fruit. A very solid session beer.

Tasty brew. Pours a deep amber color with a cream colored head. Nose is all malts, dough, and a little bit of caramel. The flavor is a hint of caramel with a good bit of malt. Pretty decent.

DRAFT at Tuscan in LG. Have had this here before...just never rated. Pours a dark amber; thin head. Mild nose...hint of caramel. Taste is malty; little hops there...definite caramel taste...sweet. Definitely not for the hop heads out there.

Purchased a 6-pack of this at Albertsons in Vegas. Pours a clean deep amber colour with fizzy beige head that dissipates quickly, and not much lace is left. Malty aromas with some darker breads, fruity notes and caramel. Wet boring mouthfeel. Fruity malt taste with hints of strawberries. Very mild roasted malts in the background. Refreshing amber altbier but not much here other than that.

Poured a clear dark reddish coppery colour with a one- to two-finger off white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. Carbonation medium. Aroma dominated by sweet malt with a trace of hops. Taste sweet caramel malt followed by a slight bitterness. Medium body. Smooth, dry. Not bitter but quite nice.

12 oz bottle pours a amber color with a thin off white head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of faint caramel and citrus. Tastes of the same things in the smell with slight biscuit flavor there as well. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, and chewy with great carbonation. One of my go to beers back when I was starting to get into craft beer. Still a pretty solid amber ale/altbier.
