On tap at local restaurant, pours a clear amber with spotty lacing, the aroma actually had a decent amount of hops with some caramel and malt, the flavor was pretty disapointing compared to the aroma, some light caramel and malt with a finish of a metal like finish, ugh.

This is good. On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear golden with a nice white head. Malt a sweatsock aroma. I know that sounds gross, but in this case it isn’t. Nice biscuity vanilla wafer and sweet malt taste. Some tartness. Really good!

rangerred (918) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Had on tap. Arrived a slightly hazy light copper with little head. Aroma was somewhat sweet and malty with a little bit of caramel and citrus. The flavor was quite toasted and I though I detected some rye in there. There was an underlying citrus note but it was hard to tell if it was from the hops or the yeast possibly. A moderate bitterness and a clean finish. Overall, I thought this was an ok beer but far from great. Not sure I would really seek it out again.

jmagnus87 (2427) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Draft at Old Chicago. Lots of caramel and a little citrus hop bitterness. Decent beer overall, thought I would really like to try the BA version of it.

wlajwl (3818) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Aroma is yeast, fruit and malts. The flavor is sweetish malts, strawberries and a smooth finish.

dnstone (2137) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Copper color (obviously). Fruity, apricot flavor with a light malt finish. Pretty good for an amber. Notes: Brewery visit during GABF

rondphoto (1947) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Clear copper with a lingering head covering and good spot lacing. The usual caramel malt is right up front, closely followed by medium hops. The bitterness lingers nicely far into the night. Worth a try.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Vintage Cellar, Blacksburg. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grainy and nutty malts, floral notes and caramel. The taste is bitter hops, nutty notes and a toasted finish. Medium bodied.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Appearance: steady stream of bubbles under an off-white head. Full collar of lace borders a patchy, solid head. Swirls thick and tempting.
Nose: orange flesh and peach fuzz. Breads underneath. Moist orange bran muffins and orange breakfast breads. Tangerines. Generic dried hops in the back.
Palate: sweet up front and bitter in the back. Bitterness is orange rind, dried herbs, and straw. Bready sweet in the middle with orangey pulp.
Final Thoughts: it was alright. A good session sipper that would work well with cheddar cheeses, pizza, burgers.
