Bottle Pours a clear amber with a good off white head. The head is frothy and deminishing. It produces spotty lacing. Aroma is of grain and bread. Has an okay carbonation. The flavor starts of with heavy grain but settles into and anice flavorful beer with touches malt and light spice. Has a medium body. A watery texture. The finish is good and has a good aftertaste. This beer needs to settle a bit to rid you of the graininess but when it does it is very drinkable and good.

Red-amber with a short-lived white head. Nose is grainy with main contribution from bready malt, a little of the distinctive swill notes. Flavor is quite a step up, building on the sweet honey/grain flavor with some nice malt that follows through to a long, sweet finish. Exceeded expectations.

As far as this style is concerned this is a really good example. Very malty in flavor with a bread like aroma. Nice copper color. Good.

beerbill (3458) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Looks like this is the third 3 rating a row! Pours a clear medium gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Very light aroma of malt and an ever-so-slight metallic smell. The flavor is again light malt but with no sign of the metallic notes in the aroma. Dull, lackluster finish. Mediocre.

Clear copper color with a short-lasting white head. Aroma of toasted malts, some caramel. Taste of toasted malts, caramel and some hops. Smooth, unimpressive, but unoffensive.

This beer grew on me more and more as I drank it..Very drinkable. Good malt flavor, not overpowering hops. Very even palate. Could drink these all night.

On tap at the Harris Grill in EEnd Pgh. Nice find and a decent place, check it out! Slightly darker than pale yellow. tho clear, it has a a bit of orange in there. Tea froth head. Hints of sweetness in the beery aroma. Some hay in the initial taste impressions. Nice. Never gets over the top, quite nice! Fair and friendly. Not bitter like some fest beers. A tad barely bitter seems to try to put itself forward, but never quite gets there. You could not find bitter in this beer unless you were searching for it. Good tingly acceptable carbonation. Mild finish, lacking any hop character, what so ever. Overall? Not bad. Liked it! Easy to enjoy with it’s 5% alky content.
