Clear dark golden pour. Average white head. Aromas of malt and hops wtih some sweet tones in the nose. Flavor is nondescript and pretty boring. Malty and a tiny bit of malt.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear, amber ale with a large, frothy, white head. Decent retention; excellent lacing.
Caramel, maple syrup, bubble gum, floral hops and butterscotch in the aroma.
The flavor is malty and chewy up front. Decently balanced with lightly bitter hops on the backside. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.
Short, bitter-sweet, dry finish. I'll go against the grain and say "I really like this one."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Boulder Beer DIA. Burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Mild earthy hoppy, caramel malty nose that’s not too potent. Dull earthy hoppy, not very exciting caramel malty flavor. More boring than I remembered.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice little beer with a light copper colour and a minimum head, but lace leaves its sign of freshness, and enormous spider webbing. No aroma, yet the hop is assuredly there without being overwhelming. A bit less than average mouthfeel. Drinkable, and sessionable.
