Jrwhitney6 (346) - - NOV 29, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Beer of month club selection. Pours amber color without much of a head. Nose was pure malt...nothing special. However, the taste was very sweet - caramel, some nuttiness, and a touch of malt. Not usually a fan of this style, but I thought this was pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cidertron (30) - California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
After trying some of Einstok’s brews, it was quite a treat to try a decent holiday brew for Christmas. It runs amber with some tastes of fruits and caramel :) It’s a bit more fizzy than their other brews running more towards the bitter side :)
