3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed a sample from a pint on tap at the brewpub. The beer had a clear deep amber to dark red color with a foamy tan head that had average retention and lacing, but good cling. Its aroma featured caramel malt and toffee along with some lighter earthy and grainy hops tones. It was a sweet, malty, caramel beer with flavors of toffee, and a very light grainy bitter aspect. The beer had a wet and watery body with low to average carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint pour of amber brown with full white head. Nose is mostly malt and sweet caramel. Flavors come through pretty similar. Not really complex or heavy, just an easy drinking amber that goes down smooth. Medium body with mild lacing. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally reviewed: 6/24/09. Pours a crystal clear amber with a big popping ivory head that fizzes away quickly. No lacing. There’s a big metallic twang on first sniff, but this melts to a slight smoky, roasted scent.
Crisp mouthfeel that dries the mouth a smidge. Tastes a tad like metal, as the scent hints at. Some sweet caramel bumps that out of the way quickly though. Also some toasted bread crust, and bready malts in there as well. Not a bad brew.

On draft at the brewery, pours a dark amber color with aromas of caramel, malt, cereal, and some hops. Favor is much of the same with a caramel flavor more up front.
