Great silky smooth taste. Would be good for drinking with desserts, particularly waffles.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark copper with a thin tan head. Aroma is semi-sweet with possibly some malt. The taste is rather bland to me but the texture is pretty interesting. It’s light and creamy. I get the velvety description. Unfortunately the flavor just comes across as a very mild brown ale to me. Unimpressive.

Dark yellow/amber with minimal white head. Number one aroma, for whatever reason, is angel food cake. Smooth, sweet, little bitterness. Pleasant&drinkable.

Drank from a can. Nice aroma with a nice frothy head coming from the top of the can. Very flavorful but the spices are not too overpowering, letting a nice malty taste doo the work. Very enjoyable!

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, toast and a very faint note of grass. Taste is sweet with a smooth and creamy mouth feel. Overall this is perfectly suited for a night outside.

Bottle. Nice dark copper pour with a frothy creamy head. Not a lot on the nose but some malty goodness is there. Creamy and sweet flavor in the taste. Cream soda with an alcohol bite, well carbonated. A real summer favorite of mine.

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark amber with about a finger and a half of thick white head. Aroma is light caramel malt and light grains. Taste is light sweet. Caramel and vanilla. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Definitely a good beer for drinking outside on a hot day. A refreshing lighter beer that actually has some flavor.
