ericdevin (884) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle from New Frontier Market, Eugene. Pours a darker translucent orange amber, essentially no head. Slight biscuit/pilsner aspect to the nose. Body light and somewhat lively, finish sticky sweet, grassy, spicy, pineapple. Interesting, but not my thing.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with very little head on there. Nose is very malt forward, but pretty light. Slight bits of caramel and toast coming through, with a hop bite. Taste is slightly sweet up front, with that bitter bite to it, and a touch of caramel throughout.

brenn79 (1577) - Idaho, USA - OCT 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle- I hope this isn’t old, these are supposed to come out in May, right? Pours clear red amber with a thin soapy white head, aroma is dirty syrupy malt, caramel. The taste is all caramel malt, but not as good as it sounds, kind of sickly sweet. The body is thin, carbonation is medium low. It tastes like a sweeter version of an Oktoberfest.

Bottle from Liquid Planet, Missoula. Pours copper with a modest beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a bit of dark fruit and a dry slightly bitter finish.
