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.

Great malty aroma. Appearance is light amber and slightly opaque. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with a good hop/malt balance, a fruit flavor is very noticeable. Surprising amount of body to this type of beer. Would definitely buy again.

Bottle. Clear amber pour, with an off white head. Malty, a bit fruity, caramel, bread, and mildly hopped finish. Ok.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle 355ml. Pours hazy amber with medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel, fruits. Taste is of malt, caramel, sugar, fruits. Palate: Medium body. Soft-medium carbonation. Overall: Straight-forward. Good for what it is, but I’m not a huge fan of the style.

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2014
On tap. Amber color with a scattering of off-white foam. Bit of a semi-skunk aroma with light roasted caramel and softer, sweeter malt underneath. Taste is straight forward with clean nutty caramel and light sweetness with some hop bitterness through the finish. Soft mouthfeel. Nice.

sudomorph (600) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a semi opaque, brilliant orange with some slight sediment and a thin head. Aroma has smooth notes of caramel, dark fruits, bread, and a bit of fruityness. Taste is balanced. Mild caramel and bread mixed with mild fruity esters, a hint of dark fruits, and a slightly darker malt on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a lively carbonation. Overall an easy drinking, balanced, brew with smooth flavours of caramel, bread, and dark fruits.

berkshirejohn (4526) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. An amber pour with a white head; aroma of malt and some grassy hops; rich fruity taste; and some lingering malt. Pleasant enough.

bellco33 (317) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2014
On tap at Taco Mac: Pours amber with a decent white head. Aroma of caramel, grains, and a little toffee. Taste is slight bubble gum, a little caramel, and sweet malt. Almost no detectable hop notes. Medium body, high carbonation, this is a decent red.

Dacrza (516) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: August 14, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: more Shark Week...APPEARANCE: orange bron amber body; two-finger, creamy off-white head; slowly effervescent and rather hazy; a decent-looking pint; nice, thick lacing... AROMA: floral hops mesh with caramel malts; sweet confectioners’ sugar is front and center ... PALATE: medium-bodied, chewy and active--a pub draft, in its consistency... TASTE: strong malty presence; mellow hops roll off the teeth and take a backseat to the nutty, somewhat buttery aftertaste--a confident offering...OVERALL:a pint for conversing over or eating pubfare with--a sessionable beer that sits well in the Bell’s sampler case...

Travlr (11812) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Cask at Churchkey. Amber color (I would hope so), thick off white head, solid lacing. Subtle caramel aroma and a taste of smooth butterscotch balanced with a late subtle hoppiness. Decent.
