Flat, reddish dark and a shitload of sugar. Besides all that this is not that bad of a beer, just a touch too sugary for my likings, but its not like i didnt drink it all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at 42nd St Oyster Bar in Raleigh, NC. Clear golden-orange color with thin white head which did a quick disappearing act. Not much aroma other than subtle grass clippings and occasional whiffs of pear and sprucy hops. I even detected what smelled like Elmer’s glue. Took me right back to 2nd grade. Flavor is a bit flat, but dominated by caramel malt. Finish is crisp and somewhat bitter. Overall I thought it was pretty average relative to their other offerings.

Draft at Mcgregors in Cary. Copper pour with aroma of fruit, malt, hopcit, slight acetic acid. Tastes rich, complex, fruity and bocky. Great complexity, yet a tad thin at the finish. Still, this one is fabulous.

Libeerian hit it on the head; notes of caramel, toffee, and general sweetness in a malty, malty body. Not much to it, though -- I think he/she is a little kind to this bock calling it a favorite seasonal.

On tap. The beer has loads of caramel malts that trickle down the tounge. I got to hand it to this brewery. I was dissapointed in their pale ale, but the rest of their beers seem solid.

(draft) Clear amber with off-white head. Aroma is mild sweet, some grassy. Taste is sweet, carame, grassy, finishing with alcohol that is slightly astringent. Medium full body. Is this beer actually under 6% ABV?

Not as good as I remember. Thin head,
a little watery flavor. Last year's had a good
malty flavor, but this year's is a little weak.
Also, I don't taste the strength in alcohol that
last years brew.
