Copper-amber pour into thick beige head that slowly dissipates into heavy melting lacing and a pool of foam. Aroma of spruce hoppiness and lemony citrus with hints of sweet caramel malt. Initial flavor of yeasty biscuit and caramel malt that fades into a bitter hoppy finish.

(12oz can thanks to ericandersnavy) clear amber with lasting soapy white bubbles. Nose of rye, candi sugar, rhubarb and oranges. Taste of grapefruit, juicy citrus, nice matching sweetness to balance it all, and a creamy body. Surprised at this one.

On tap at Tapwerks OKC. Pours a dark amber with a small frothy white head with good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral hops and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and carmel with a nice crisp finish. Easy to drink, a very good amber from Coop.

16 oz. can from WesKBob. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small bubbly off white head. The aroma has a mild hoppiness, sweet malts; pretty basic for the style. The flavor has decent hop bitterness, slightly syrupy, caramel malt. Not much more than a session beer, but decent for the style.

Great head with plenty of lacing, retention is very good as well. Beautiful amber color. Aroma shows many layers of grain not much hops though. First taste brings little bubbles followed with rich grainy malt. The hops do finally show up for the party in the finish. I’m more of an hops guy but think these guys did a great job on the malt.

Can shared alexsdad06. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasted and had very good lacing. Good roasted malty and small hop aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate thick smooth sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Complex session brew, but another been there done that beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. can, shared with multiple others at brew club. Thanks to Chuck. Pours a thin off white head, over a clear amber (SRM 7) body....nose is light caramel/toffee, bread, cereal....taste is sweet malts to start, heavy cereal in the middle, finishing with a light lingering hop bite...mouth feel is on the light of medium, carbonation low. This is a fairly typical amber, pleasantly drinkable, reasonable malt backbone, lighter hops. BJCP 6/3/12/4/7
