on tap at "Fly Bar" in San Francisco, CA. first thought was that it was just a hella weak beer. little aroma. light florals. tastes of caramel malts, grapefruit and nuts. bitter only at finish. kind of blah and watered down flavors. drinking this was " a STRUG."

Amber beer that drips of caramel and cocoa which is a strange target for this style.

WTF? this beer was awful! for a fairly highly rated amber, it was definately not the same beer. it was definately oxidized, but i could tell that this beer would suck when fresh. pours dark copper with a small fizzy tan head. nose is green apples all the way-infection! this is just awful. 2 sips and drain pour!

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber body with a large foamy off-white head that took forever to subside. The nose is showing a good bit of diacetyl with a bit of toasted malt. The diacetyl plays a major role in the flavor as well unfortunately, covering up most of what thin malt is present. Just a little bit of sweet toffee and caramel gets by all the butter. Minimal to no hoppiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a slick slight clinginess. Not so good, but I have a pretty heavy dislike for beers that show a heavy buttery quality to them.
