Sample at Hay Merchant. The beer is a clear amber color with a medium thin creamy off-white head that recedes quickly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of roast malt, caramel and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. The aroma is malty and a little bitter. The appearance is amber with a creamy, white head. The taste starts out an english bitter in the roof of the mouth with a darker malt flavor finish. Kinda sweet at the end as well. The palate is a sour bitter. Overall, a decent beer, but would order others over it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 The aroma is mostly grainy, with cereal and a bit of nuts, as well as minor floral undertones. The taste is mild and mirrors the aroma closely, with discreet bitterness and a touch of caramel sweetness. Light-to-medium mouthfeel with generous carbonation.
