ARH (829) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 12 oz bottle poured into nonic. Faint traces of orange in the aroma, but mostly dough smells. Appears clear amber with a light orange colored head which dissipates quickly. It’s comes on mostly sweet, but it’s a smooth sweet as opposed to overwhelming. It’s a medium body beer with strongest notes of citrus and malt, but finishes thin and caramel-sweet - couldn’t pick up too much of the hops. It has an average carbonation, but turns flat relatively quickly as it warms in the glass. Nothing lingers in the taste,and it finishes very clean. There’s nothing overly special or surprising about this beer. Nothing filling or offensive lends itself well to a session beer.

AWISLguy (1753) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle at random grill in Madison. Pours a reddish amber with an orange head. Aroma is heavy malty caramel with some light fruit. Taste is sweet caramel, some roughness, and some fruit. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly biscuity caramelly, but not in a cloying fashion. Shrug? Not a top amber from not a top brewery. Would say "hit the style" however it is easy to name 10 better examples of the style.

Finhead (1350) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Clear, deep amber pour with a frothy, 0ff-white head. The aroma is bready with light caramel. The light body has crisp texture with lively carbonation. The taste well-balanced and bittersweet with slightly more bitter finish.

A decent amber beer. Typically not a fan of ambers but this one is smooth. Malty and bitter it goes down smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can to glass. Clear amber color with medium carbonation. Mild malty, caramel sweetness--not overdone, with a pretty clean finish. Easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

floydslip (253) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Light amber colored beer with a medium white head. Slight nose of doughy malt and not much else. Flavor has a mild caramel malt flavor initially that gives way to a bit of musky bitterness, but the sweetness lingers. Nicely carbonated, this is s drinkable beer.

Patrickctenchi (4817) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Can: Clear, light amber with a frothy, light tan head. Toffee malt aroma. Toffee/caramel taste...a little toast. Light, creamy. Rather tasty.

thechandler (590) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours an auburn-amber color. Aroma is malty sweet but not a whole lot of depth aside from that. Maybe some caramel notes, but mostly maltose. Flavor is decent. Again, not really anything deep or complex. Slightly sweet. Faint caramel notes. Fairly drinkable.
