3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft at the Fishers, IN brewpub - Pours light, mostly clear amber-orange with a minimal head. There’s a mild caramel malt aroma. It tastes of sweet caramel malt with some fruitiness. This brew is medium bodied and has just a little hops in the finish.

Had this on tap at their restaurant. Pretty bland and uninteresting in all ways. Pass. Food was not very good, either.

My favorite from six. Malt with bitter character also, dark clear golden lacing, some soapy notes . Nice finish

Tap; smooth to slightly sweet finish; easy to drink but a forgettable beer. (#43)

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice deep amber with a quickly dissapating head. Some nice lacing. Tasted malty and some bisuit flavoring coupled with a little bit of caramel. Not bad, but nothing terrific either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 Amber color, aroma of toasted malts. Taste has elements of a porter to it with caramel and burnt chocolate, yet retains the essence of an amber. I like this! 3.5
RE-RATE 1/22/11 Tap at Arlington Humperdinks. Pours a clear orange amber color. Very little carbonation and head. Slight sense of hops and caramel malts. Sweet aroma. Hoppy malted flavor. Dry but enough flavor to lend a sweetness. Odd for an amber style.

On tap at Humperdinks in Richardson, TX. Pours a nice deep amber with off-white head. Aroma of caramel. Flavor is nice caramel, some dark roast. Mouthfeel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, pretty good stuff, easy session drinker, enjoyed it...

clear amber color with a pretty mild amber malt aroma. The taste was somewhat bitter, perhaps a touch of hops?

Draft at the Tacoma Waterfront location. Crystal clear dark amber with no head, lace, or carb. Mild nutty nose. Light, somewhat watery body. Leafy, nutty, biscuity mid-palate. Pretty vacant finish. Years ago, I used to be able to drink this beer.
