Can via trade. Light brown with a small head. Strong caramel, a bit of peaty cocoa, light raspberry chocolate brownie. The taste is actually pretty nicely balanced. Toasted brown bread and caramel. Accents of peppery hops. Glazed donut sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From can. Orangey brown pour. Aroma of cocoa and toasted notes and caramel. Flavor followed with bready and nutty and vegetable notes all in there. Meh. Pretty not good. Mouthfeel was light and thin and watery. Bad overall beer and of the supposed style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium brown with quickly fading head leaving nothing left and no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, nutty with wheat bread and honey. Taste is mild roast, mild overall. Not offensive, but nothing noteworthy going on here.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from Dresden, thanks buddy! Dark brown butterscotch pour, nice hue go creamy white head. Aroma, light malts, and aluminum. Taste, fairly carbonated, bready grains, bit of soapy aftertaste. Overall, not sure what they were going for here but this is a pretty tasteless brew (other than the soapy finish), down the drain she goes.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out some honey sweetness and light caramel. Flavour brings out some nice DMS, tomato soup, vegetal notes, and light honey sweetness. Finish leaves almost nothing but carbonated water. Really weak and boring - not a disaster, but what’s the point of this. Not good.
