Can. Deep gold-copper colour with a good sized head. Aroma is fairly grainy, with some honeyed malt and mild hops. Medium bodied. Flavour is moderately hopped, and the finish is a bit sharp. Average.

apple scent is a terrible way to start a beer off. Taste has a mild, drinkable bitterness. Daring? Not even close. This is a terrible attempt at the style.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
(12oz can) Small off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel/butterscotch, some pine. Taste is medium sweet, a hideous combination of butterscotch and pine/grapefruit, mixed with some lemon floor wax. Medium body, somewhat dusky, syrupy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can sampled. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light citrus, and earthy hops. Flavor is medium sweet with caramel malts, sweet fruit, and a hint of grapefruit with a nice dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clouded amber orange with virtually no head. Nose is of tangy hops. Flavor is hoppy, sure. But it has a strong, almost watery flavor edge to it. Feel has a lot of bubble on the tongue. Like I said previously though, there is a watery element to it that effects the overall experience. Decent, but a midguided shot at this whole canning of craft beer thing.

12 oz. can via trade with jasonmech77 - Pours a hazy amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Aroma is light malt and esters. Flavor is lightly sweetened caramel malt and esters. Medium body. A somewhat subdued IPA. Worth a try. Thanks Jason.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a can pours a lightly hazy golden orange amber with a medium/bubbly/creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma was lots of caramel malt, some citrus, hops kind of buried beneath the malt sweet nose. Flavor of caramel malt, cardboard, some butter, some hop flavor and bitterness.
