Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium amber brown with a large (2-3 fingers) rocky light tan head that lasted a little while leaving behind some puddled residue floating on top thus producing excellent lacing that really stuck to the glass. The aroma was strong of a toasted biscuit malt, a nice piney hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and dried dark fruit. It tasted malty-sweet with a hint of caramel at first and mildly bitter from the hops at the finish with a touch of dried fruit at the end with the flavor lasting a really nice long time after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and a little dry in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a very impressive brew for this style, a perfect blending of flavors with a nice mild hop finish.

TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Enjoy by date: Jan. 19, 2017. Clear rust. Dirty-white head shows good retention. Very dull aroma of wet bread, Red Delicious apple, rock candy, concord grape jelly, and a hint of DMS and oxidation. Soft carbonation. Quite fruity initially, with fuzzy DMS colliding with a red apple and starchy, wet paper dullness. Poorly extracted malt is notably flabby and structureless, with its incessant sugars weighing the body down and overshadowing any body-aiding textures. Alcohol generates a moderate sting, as the sugars steadily heighten to create a medicinal effect at the swallow. Fatiguing sugars contribute to a very wet and dully malty finish, with notes of maple sugar and applesauce lingering alongside a hint of DMS. It really doesn’t get much more uninspired than this. Very syrupy-sweet as if they dumped malt extract into the bottle, and it has its share of fermentation defects. There’s essentially nothing discernible hopwise, and the sugars become tiresome after a single gulp. Drain pour.

This is one of the really brown American takes on the style and that’s okay. This one is maybe slightly hazed w/ a thin head of mixed size bubbles. There is a lot of caramel character here but it never quite crosses the line into being way too sweet and it is a bit syrupy and heavy but still pretty drinkable. It finishes pretty clean w/ some lingering sugar on the tongue and just a bit of earthy bitterness. I would not want to drink this all day but one is pleasant enough.

KikoDucky (28) - Trenèín, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 1, 2016
330ml bottle. Fine aroma of caramel and yeasts. Amber colour with big creamy head. Very light taste, not too much bubles, feel little bit of caramel and bread. from start to finnish lightly bitter flavour, after swallowing still caramel on mouth. Overall: Nice drinkability, there is maybe a lot of caramel flavours, but still good beer.

Smells like sweet roasted nuts. Clear Amber light head. Sweet malt meld in to a light bitter as it fades. It’s OK.
