3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My notes describe this as "coppery Copper", so I’m gonna go with that. Smells nice, kinda toasty and caramelly, with some hop in the background. Flavor pretty much follows suit, , maybe a bit more hop in the finish. Pretty simple, pretty tasty.

12 oz can from Stateline. Poured a light amber with hints of orange underneath an average to slightly small foamy off white head. Aroma of wax paper, toffee and dried raisins. The carbonation is a little strong and fizzy for this medium bodied brew. Flavor is much like the aroma with a strong homage to wax paper. The remainder is mostly malt backed with some grains, toffee and grains.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, some fruit mainly citrus with light herbal and grassy notes. The flavor had moderately sweet caramel malt, orange rinds, biscuity notes and mild bitterness in the finish. This was a decent amber, the can gets extra points, but the price point they have set for this in our area will keep people from buying this when there are so many superior alternatives that are less expensive.

Nice mid-range malty flavor with some sweet caramel too. Has some floral and citrus hops through it but mostly the malts. Nice.
