On tap at Dick’s, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour are pretty mild and restrained, with light bready malts. Pretty weak and lacking character. Not interesting.

Bottle. Smells a bit heavy with grains, but in a pleasant way that makes for a smooth and creamy foreshadowing. Taste is very slightly bitter and smooth, and ends up being not bad.

Draft - Caramel malts. Clear dark gold with a decent white head. Caramel and a touch of grain and orange. Decent but nothing special.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange with no head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor has toast, and some caramel. Finishes doughy. Nothing really stands out about this beer, but it’s very much drinkable. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich deep amber coloured body with a light brown glow and a thick, three centimetre tall very soapy and broad bubbled tan head - ugly. Aroma of nuts, earth, copper, metal, water and some light soap - not too pleasant. Light to Medium-bodied; Good malty flavour with some earth and nuts up front fading to an apple, pear, figs, raisins and a little light hoppy flavour. Aftertaste shows mostly fruits with a big malty touch and a light caramel and toffee sweetness at the very end. Overall, a decent beer with some confusing flavours and a good sweetness, but a beer to try if you really like the style, otherwise, a decent offering. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 04-October-2013 for US$1.85 sampled at home in Upstate, New Paltz, New York on 10-May-2014.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Near clear dark orange-amber in color with a short beige head. Aroma is quite malty with some fruity elements. Not too complex. Medium sweet malty flavor and a medium body. True to style. More red than amber.
