I bought a bottle of this to try. Poured a lighter than expected amber color, unimpressive head. Strong nutty/caramel aroma. I found this beer to be almost undrinkable due to the cloying sweetness. I’d heard the new owners were tweaking the old recipes, and I had hopes this would be better. I will not be buying any more of it.

An orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is quite light, what is there is sweet malty with hints of oranges. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, leading to a dry metallic end.

Huh? Was I drinking the wrong beer. This tastes so similar to three of their other beers that I can’t tell where it ends and the others begin.

(Bottle) Pours a medium amber color with white head. This beer has no flavor at all. Not a bad flavor just nothing at all.

Rye flavor. Hop flavor. Red color. Kind of like sucking on a wet piece of six day old rye bread. Notes include: "This is a holy terrible F*ck of a beer!" I think that sums up my position quite nicely.

Amber pour with odd fruity aroma. I think something was wrong with this...it reminded of the Penn Weizen I had a ways back. Sour, citrus like bitter lemon mixed with sugar. Overcarbonated and thin. I couldn’t finish it. I even let it warm way up...no improvement. Yuck.
