Bottle from Archer Liquors. Deep ruby amber color with a large frothy beige head. Aroma of roughly roasted caramel. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is malt, light citrus, and some light treacle? It’s extremely tasty, and reminds of a lighter Belgian ale. Finishes more dry than not.

Bottle from Schroppfy, thanks! Brown color. malt, caramel and mint in the aroma. Malty flavor with caramel, licorice and mint. Just a bit thin. Sweetish, but with enough flavors to compensate. Pleasant brown ale.

(On tap at the brewery)
Crystal clear, deep amber ale. Small, off-white, creamy head. Partially retaining with good lacing.
The nose is of caramel, butterscotch, toffee... everything MALT!
The flavor is ridiculously rich, buttery and malty... with balance. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, semi-sweet, buttery finish. Reminiscent of Lake Tahoe Red and European Zebra Lager (which is no longer brewed).
