Deep dark gold clear pour from bottle with a nice lasting off white froth of suds. Sweet caramel earthy bread aroma, mostly all grains in the nose with just a hint of citrus. Smooth easy going drinkability, it has small doses of orange citrus and an herbal tingle but mostly rides out a grain based path. Some bitterness in the finish, small amount of citrus again with some grass and sweetness of pale malts. Nice brew, soft and easy going.

Purchased at a random liquor store in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed at home while watching a Bears game on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Appearance is a bright amber gold, moderately cloudy, rich white head that lightly laces to the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, rich in a variety of hops as well, kind of smells somewhere between a barley wine and a pale ale, rather unique. Taste goes down with a moderate thickness, nice hop profile, nice bitterness as well. Pretty good stuff.

arondee (528) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Pours copper brown with a small while head. The aroma is light citrus hops and vegetables. The taste it’s crisp and clean, a little bitter and unfortunately a little metallic. It’s an ok beer but unfortunately the metallic thing is ruining it for me.

Usko (149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2013
Amber color, white head. Aroma of pines, citrus, herbs and bread. Very earthy. Taste is citrus, malts, fruits. A very balanced beer. I like the bitterness, not too much, not too less.

Had while on an Alaskan cruise. This one was probably my favorite of the brewery of what I had. A nice hop flavor. Definitely the one I got the most while on the ship.

kevinator (717) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Surprisingly really good and fresh. It had a strong piney and floral aroma. The color was of cider with a little bit of haze and a white head. Good crisp palate that matched the high carbonation. The citrus and grapefruit hop flavors hit me first with a slightly grainy malt backbone. A refreshing beer.

Nikiel (870) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle from 12 pack. Pours gold with fine white foam. Smells lightly sweet with hints of pine and tropical fruit. Tastes over-carbonated and watery, slightly wheaty and ends very bitter.

stevoj (1704) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Pours light amber with high rocky head. Lots of sticky lacing and a nice piney hoppy aroma, with a little malt in the background. Taste is full on astringent hops which lingers on the palate. Bitter but enjoyable.

Lubiere (9438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2013
A golden amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with refreshing floral hops, classic. In mouth, a dry crisp biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, a bit light but good for summer. On tap at Downtown Brew fest LV 2013.
