12oz bottle acquired in trade with robertsreality (thanks!). Poured a medium orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and I’m getting a light earhiness. Tastes of citrus, caramel, and toasted malts. Starts off lightly sweet and ends in a light citrus, bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the Rock Bottom MSP location. This beer is a clear orange color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes quickly. Patches of lacing. Aroma of light citrusy hops and sweet caramel malt. Light-bodied with a sweet caramel and malt character, and just a bit of hops flavor too. The finish is sweet and malty and the aftertaste does not linger long. No big faults, just a boring beer.

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.

clear copper, fine off white head, streaks of drippy lace,
light malt aroma with light astrengent bitterness,
sweet malt flavor, nice bready biscuit character, light earthy bitterness, the bitterness eventually catches up and takes over and dries it out a bit too much,

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."
