"darker than most, with a slightly sweeter toffee/caramel thing going on before the slightly bitter finish. not bad, but not great. worth trying, especially if you’re an alaskan fan..."

Brentv (369) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2014
From bottle, pours a reddish amber with a big fluffy off-white head. Lots of fluffy lacing on the glass, too. Aroma is caramel and biscuit and floral hops. Taste is the same, moderately bitter, not particularly sweet, with a light bitter finish.

chinchill (1954) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12 oz bottle consumed in Redwoods Park. Red-amber; clear; very good tan head; excellent lacing. Has a layered, appealing aroma that mixes sweet baked grains with herbal/floral hops. Flavor: Given the aroma, there’s a rather bold hop note and lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste. Fruity and herbal. Feel: Lively medium-high carbonation. Medium body. O: bold and hoppy for style.

legion242 (2223) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Beautiful to look at in the glass. Deep rust with a frothy head. In the mouth there is decent malt, but just a tad too much hops for me.

sawbuck (341) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Aroma of sweet bread, and roasted malt. Nice copper amber with a tan head. Nice sweet, caramel malt up front. Notes of roasted malt, hints of toffee, and closes with a nice dry bitterness that blends perfectly with the malty begining. Finishes smooth. Nice example.

joshmcg000 (322) - Iowa, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours slightly hazy amber with small amount of white head. Aroma is roast, toffee and caramel. Nice caramel toffee malt body with a little bit of sweet floral hops. Easy to drink and pretty good.

brenn79 (1544) - Idaho, USA - MAY 25, 2014
12 oz bottle- Pours dark autumn amber with a two finger light tan head. Aroma is caramel malt, bright and citrusy which i wasn’t expecting. The taste is caramel malt, very ESB, dry finish. Not my style but not bad.

mmmbeer (1250) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle from HEB (Braker and 183) served in shaker- poured a mildly darkened amber when held to a light source, one finger slightly off white head formed but DID NOT lace upon the vessel (intriguing...). Aroma of light caramel, an ever so lightly toasted malt, and some love....AHHH! Hits the mouth with a true medium body, malt is just a little slightly sweet, finish has a hint of ash, smoke, and booty. Yep, booty. Just gotta like that.
