Had this beer as part of Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 29. Pours a dark amber. Aroma of light hops. Flavor is tempered. <-- not sure why I wrote this when I tried it.

Thanks Daniel!

Gorgeous color, head, lace. Hoppy nose seeps onto the palate alongside red malts and steeped tea. A little more mild on the palate than I'd like; bring me more flavor and we'll talk. Interesting, though, and glad I got to try it.

Deep amber coloured beer with a very creamy light tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Grapefruit and soft sweet caramel. Lightly toasted malts and a soft fruitiness. Flavour is lovely as well... soft toasted caramel and a bit of brown/cocoaish malts. Fairly earthy hoppiness initially, but then finishes with a fruity hop bite. Lingering zesty/herbal hop finish.

Draft. Pours a ruby bruin body with an off white head. Malty body with a caramel malt tone. Cereal notes, bread and toasted malt. Very dank wet malt tones, alright but not a huge fan of the style.

Big bubbly off-white head. More dirty brown in color with red highlights toward the light. Nose of grain. Taste is hops upfront, grain in the end. Light cotton mouth dry finish. Good during dinner. Overall not bad, I wouldn’t drink again. Tasted with AirForceHops.
