Brewed in the USA..... Courtesy of my friend Woody, thanks !! Pours a hazy orange color with a foamy off white head. Aroma of bananas, malts and toffee. The taste is much of the same with a smooth medium body and a sweet finish.

Thanks to Woody Chandler for sharing. Poured lightly hazed gold-amber with a lasting half inch of head. Smelled of toffee, grass, and caramel. The flavor was very nutty with some toffee as well. Not my favorite style but good for what it was.

22oz from ppoitras - thanks, Pete! Light orange pour, with an estimable head. Fruit and malts in the nose, a promising start for an unassuming style. A bit more bready than I’d hoped on this warm day, but light enough in the palate and pert enough in the flavor to satisfy. Slightly grassy finish, a decent bock.
