COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most complex of our beer line-up with a combination of five different malts and four different hop varieties. Buttface has the broadest popular appeal of our beers. It has a high malt character and lack of evident hops. This surprises people because it is easy to drink, but has a higher alcohol content than what is perceived.

Dradt taster at RAM, Schaumburg. Brown beer with plenty of light edges. No foam after I’ve gotten to it on the sampler tray. American hop notes finally come through my stuffy nose. Yet it’s the malt that leaves the first impression on my tongue. Followed by a tangy caboose of bitterness. Pleasing fruity esters keep the hops from taking over.

I keep a keg in the garage and drink 2-3 beers each day. I like to drink with large swallows spaced about 5 minutes apart. Given these personal peculiarities, I enjoy this beer more than most

foyle (233) - Wyoming, USA - APR 22, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass Appearance: a sudsy off-white head slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Color is a deep amber with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: rich roasted barley malt, a hint of coffee, some fruit and some mild herbal hops. Mouthfeel: light and watery, slightly astringent and a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: medium roasted barley, caramel, raisins, earthy and herbal bitterness. Overall: a pleasant and drinkable beer, represents the style well.

Sampler at Schaumburg. Chalky grey-brown body. Classic 90s brewpub style amber. Big chewy malt notes. Meh.

b3shine (5333) - Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Draft to taster at Ram in Indy. Looks decent; a completely transparent copper with very thin eggshell lacing. Smells and tastes mildly sweet and malty with notes of caramel. Average on the palate. An underwhelming example of ghe style.

maxwelldeux (3548) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a clear dark amber color. The nose on this was extremely light - I had to let it warm and swirl it around to get anything off it, and even then I only got some slight caramel notes. Taste was slightly toast. Overall, this was wholly inoffensive and unremarkable.

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft: at RAM, downtown Indy Clear, deep wet copper with a small, off white head. Caramel, nut aroma. Caramel malt, fruit, earthy, likeable mild bittering. Pretty good and straightforward.

12/15/2013. On tap. Amber color with a white head. No surprise here. Caramel aromas with light malt. light fruit, caramel and malty flavors with a semi-sweet finish. Nothing remarkable.

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear red pour with thin white head, aroma is caramel, toffee, spice, toasted malt, hints of grass, slight touch of grain, hints of earth and biscuit notes as well, pretty decent. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight grass, hints of spice, finishing earthy, dry. Eh.

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Enjoyed from On tap at the Ram brewery/restaurant in Salem, OR. This is an alright amber. High marks as an amber but definitely not a "red". Moderate malts, nice and smooth. Solid amber, light red in color. The head is a nice thick white foam. 5.8 BD

Clear Amber with an off white head. Smell creamy caramel and a bit of toffee. A bit of citrus up front, smooth grass and caramel after. Light bodied, easy drinking. Good
