Can, pours an amber body with an off white head. A malty body with a light crisp pine note. Some dry toast and earth tones, a bit of spruce with a malty crystal tone. A mild body with no warming. An average amber.

(12oz can, courtesy of ericandersnavy) Pours a clear amber body with a medium cream head. Aroma of caramel, herbs, light pine, and grass. Flavor of caramel, orange, biscuit, and toffee with a moderately bitter finish.

brokensail (13278) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2010
A: The pour is a medium amber color with a mild off-white head which dies down to a thin layer, leaving some spotty lacing. S: There are aromas of sweet caramel malt along with fruity hop notes of tangerines and grapefruits. T: The flavor is sweet and mildly sugary with plenty of caramel and a slight toast. The fruit character is not really present, but there is a mild pine bitterness on the finish. M: The body is medium with a somewhat low level of carbonation. D: The flavors are sort of unspectacular, but a decent enough amber. That said, I’d much rather go for the Caldera IPA or Pale Ale.

JohnRMurdoch (3792) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 28, 2010
Can from Beers of Europe. Sweet malty aroma, cloudy brown colour with strange greenish brown head. Flowery spicy ferric flavour with sickly sweet lingering finish. Not really my type of beer.

MikeLovesYou (1) - Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2010 does not count
Great foam, great color, spicy/slighty floral after taste. The mid and after taste is strong while the front is smooth. A perfect beer if I ever tasted one.

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - APR 17, 2010
12oz Can. Pours a pretty standard amber color, white head with little retention, not much lacing. Dominant hop aroma, but its pretty mellow on its own. Malt sweetness and bit of roast flavor, some minor hop flavor and a bit of bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation, slick texture.

IndianaRed (2880) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 16, 2010
out of can...A nice clear light mahogany witha rather dark tan head. Subtle sweet malty aroma, with a touch of woodiness and some light spices. Flavor is woody and malty. Very plain, but a session beer that doesn’t fight to be noticed. Ambers and not usually very exciting but this is well done and with just enough flavor to keep you picking up the glass. Appropriately low on the bitterness, rather softly carbonated and a slightly astringent trailer. Not bad.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2010
Hazy amber color. Toasted malt and pine hoppy aroma. Greta balance of malt and hops. Very drinkable, yet complex enough. No lingering bitter aftertaste. Awesome amber beer.

Can at Papsř. Cloudy orange coloured with a small off white head. Fruity aroma of caramel, hops and pine needles. Fruity flavour of caramel, hops and grass. Dry hoppy finish.

Cloudy amber with a tiny off white head. Hoppy aroma with caramel, toasted malt and abricots. Hoppy flavour with grapefruits, abricots, caramel and toasted malt. Finished dry and bitter.
