This beer was fantastic. I ordered by name and didn’t know what to expect, but the rich malty ale with subtle hops to balance the sweetness really hit the spot.

This is the house beer at Buffalo Bill’s - always available and always consistently smooth and refreshing.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light hazy amber with a thin, fine head that fades quickly. Bready aromas accompanied by light caramel and a sublte noble hop spice; surprising Belgian-esque phenols. Full bodied with caramel and light anise, low noble hop flavor with medium finishing bitterness. A seriously underrated beer in my opinion.

A strong orange-fruit aroma that I loved. Nice. A good hop flavor up front and in the finish. The orange notes work well. A good beer for the girls too.

From a bottle. Tastes like mild floral hops. Slightly malty and slightly sweet. Fruity aroma like apricots, plums, and hops. Smooth, medium body, and low carbonation.

Poured up on tap at Buffalo Bill’s with clear copper body and gold edges supporting up an off white head and leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a little spicy with hops as well as some floral hops too. The taste is similar with a mix of spicy to floral hoppiness followed by a modest amount of vague hop bitterness.

12 oz bottle. Pours just fine with a proper head. A rather weak body delivers little taste. The alcohol at a supposedly higher level failed to stimulate.
