On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a clear dark brown with no head at all, the aroma is of old malt and caramel, the flavor is very bland with just a little bit of sweetness in the finish with some caramel, ugh, not good.

Nice malt profile but lacking enough hop zing to carry ot. Pours nice light brown and sports a delectable pillowy mouthfeel. Needs some bitterness to balance.

Served on tap at Ram Brewery, downtown Indianapolis. Very dark amber. Strong caramel flavor to the point of almost being overbearing. Would be good with a hamburger or perhaps grilled chicken. Seemed mass produced. Enjoyable but I don?t think I?d order this again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much for aroma. Straight amber in color (always a good sign for an amber :) ) A light malty flavor with apple peel notes in the taste. A very enjoyable amber, which I don’t usually like!
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

A gift from SJ. A simlpe brew with not too much character.
Sweet / caramel malts, mild hop notes and some fruit. A little thin. It was ok.

Sampler at Arlington brewpub. Comes medium brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, and a bit of hops. Just OK.
