Dark amber color. Medium bitterness. Toffee, toast, roasty malts. Subtle fruit flavors. Crisp, pilsner-like hops (grassy/spruce). Balanced. A good session beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at brewery. Lightly hazy red amber with large-bubbles head and good lacing. Aroma is lightly nutty and sour with earthy hops and toasted grain. Some smoke and bandaid phenols. Taste is tart berries and banana with toasted grain, earthy hops, and light pine. Better than the golden but still not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the brewery. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, floral hops, and some dough. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. Not bad for the style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft, poured a clear amber/gold into the pint glass. White head that dissipated rather quickly. Bready malty aroma, I knew this was going to be way too sweet when I smelled it, and it was. Some resin hops in the finish. Unbalanced poor offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Can: clear copper pipe colored body with a mild red tint, topped with a beige, big-bubbled head that settles to a flimsy collar. Aroma has notes of toasty bread & caramel, almost Munich malt-like with lightly fruity hints, perhaps some apple or red grape. Doughy. Taste has a nice toasted dough & baked bready vibe with faint hints of spice, caramel, & leafy hops in the finish. Full of crystal malt flavors but the sweetness is tame. It’s not exactly anything special but it’s still tasty.

Very safe drinkable flagship beer. All flavors and aromas are nicely balanced with light noble hops and light caramel maltiness.
