A beer by any other name! Well what can I say? Oh! Pretty much ordinary here. A fair amount of ETOH in this one but still pretty drinkable as an every day berw. Needs more hops for me, but then I might be a bit of a hop head.

Tasted on 5/14/13 on draft at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with an average beige head that leaves average lace. The nose is malty caramel and toffee with dark bread and a bit of toast. The flavor is more toasted and bitter with the malty caramel and dark bread taking a back seat. The body is just over medium with average carbonation and a long caramel and toasted, lightly bitter finish.

On tap at The Perch Pub & Brewery. Light peat, caramel malts, toffee and light earthy hops. Medium malty sweetness and light hop bitterness with a light smoky finish. Medium body with a smooth feel. Tasty.

Got this in a BIF, pours caramel brown with a small white wisp that fades. Aroma is caramel, a little smoke and sweet malts. Taste is much the same, almost syrupy, small smoke which makes it feel delicate.

Bottle. Clear amber pour, with an off white head. Sweet, bready, grain, caramel, and strangely a light touch of tartness in the finish. Ok.

Arizona tick. This one almost did not happen if not for the hotel bar in PHX. This beer pours dark Amber ruby brown, silky off white head. Nose is caramel, toffee. Taste adds slight raisin. Chalky. Medium to full body , syrupy, and not really all that refreshing.

On tap at brewery in Tempe. Fairly good malty brew. Some smoke in aroma and in the taste. Nice caramel flavor somewhat light in the body., but it was a drinkable brew good with their burgers.
