COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Nice cloudy copper pour from the bottle. Good sized head with a high degree of lacing. The sweetness mathces nicely with the maltiness but the carbonation is a little high, I think.

Pours a thick and hazy brown in color. Fairly dense white head that evaporated down to a scuzzy layer. Malty nose with a slight evergreen whiff to it. Flavor is a nice solid malt backbone. Kind of an oakiness to it as well. Hops give a slight sprice and evergreen flavor too. Medium to almost full mouthfeel. odd for the setyle but I am really digging it. Nice almost-session beer.

orange-copperish color with a thick head. Aroma has some sweet maltiness to it. Taste is a perfect mix of bitter and sweet. Initially a sweet malt taste with some hints of nuts and caramel, but by the time you finish, the hops kick in so the beer is not overly sweet. Only downside is that the taste could have been a bit stronger. Body was a good thickness. A bit on the expensive side compared to what else was available, but still cheap enough to be an any week beer.

Light amber color. Roasty, herbal aroma. Subtle taste of caramel, herbs, and toast. Very good, above average amber make

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Good beer, but this batch seems to have had some filtration issues. All sorts of suspended goodness left over. Not bad, but not a favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber & Pizza Night. Hazy orange. Aroma of lush fruit, sweet caramel and honey. Subtle taste with amazing balance and a light finish. Creamy fruits & caramel. Medium body thatís very smooth with fine, light carbonation. Smooth sailing and one to convert non-beer drinkers. Great stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 This is probably my favorite all around drinkable beer. Itís especially enjoyable on a summer evening. sweat caramel and a little bitter bite at the end. Real nice looking beer sitting in my glass.

Sweet, fruity aroma that follows through in the taste. A strong fruit-malt beginning complimented with a pleasant bitter finish.

Sweet and somewhat grassy on the nose. Poured a cloudy, golden color. Terrific mouthfeel. Tasted sweet initially but hops quickly neutralized things, leaving a pleasant, balanced aftertaste.

I really like this beer. Nice mixture of malts and hops. Pours a fairly small white head. Very cloudy orange/amber color. The flavor is of orange peels, peaches, a bit of a butter taste? Nice everyday beer to have in the fridge this winter.
