Had this on tap at the brewery. Very little aroma with a slight malty taste. But it was difficult to distinguish the beer flavor from the overwhelming BBQ aroma that came from the smoke pit on the patio. Not a beer I would recommend - only slightly better than a macrobrew. At least the price was right.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a large fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was faint sour mash, a touch of yeast and faint vague fruity hops. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with a bit of sour mash, tart citrus and a touch of perfume. Medium length finish. Light to medium body. Blah.

Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Flavor was moderate balanced with an average balanced finish of short to moderate duration. Soft drinkable brew.

theisti (3905) - Kansas, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Shaker pint draft at the Village Pub and Grill at the Las Vegas airport. The pour is light haze golden amber with a small off white head. The aroma is pretty faint (beer was quite cold initially), showing just a touch of grain sweet malt. The taste is initially cereal grain malt, along with some light sweet, then some hay, and towards the end a decent amount of diacetyl. The palate is light bodied, fine carbonation, and a pretty dirty diacetyl finish. Just ok, not sure how fresh this was.

Tap at the Las Vegas airport. More clear gold than amber. Small white head. Mild grain and some dusty earthy malts.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Appearance was clear reddish amber with creamy off white lasting 1 finger head, lacing throughout. Aromas are sweet caramel and crystal malts with slight spicey piney hops with yeasts are clean. No alcohol present. Taste was sweet malt backbone with lemon, grapefruit hops are soft yet sublte. Palate was smooth light CO2 with light-meduim body, then slight dryish hop yeast finish. If only maltier and hoppier...
