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.

12oz bottle...Pours a brownish-red hue...not much froth produced on this. Aroma is full of malt, carmel...not very intense though...Drinks pretty much as expected...body seems lighter than it is because the beer seems to be lacking in CO2...so it comes of a bit lifeless and flabby. Malts dominate with carmel being the main character. Sweet, but some slight lingering bitterness shows up...though not quite enough to balance out the crystal malts. This is something I can drink easily, although a more prominent hopping would help add some depth and balance. Thanks Brent! I enjoyed it.

BVery (6971) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. Mostly clear amber pour with no head. Aroma is sweet malts with a hint of Band-Aid. Earthy, or maybe just stale taste. Meh.

ramboraffe (730) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2014
On tap at a restaurant in Forth Worth (forgot the name). Hazy brown with thin off white head. Smell is caramel malty. Taste is caramel and slightly nutty. Sweet with low bitterness and very low carbonation.

"the most boring beer in the six beer sampler. toffee malt is nice, but the hop presence is barely noticeable and there is little balance. no need to try again. pretty standard amber."

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 (254) - 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 (5840) - 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 (3802) - 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 (4090) - 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.
