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.

Dragonfly1 (494) - Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Can by the pool... OK overall, nothing wrong but nothing terrific either. Light amber, bready spice nose. Barley forward, with a tangy dried fruit middle and finish. Hoping for more smoky depth.

sudomorph (644) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
12oz can. Pours a clear, ruby/caramel with a finger of off white head. Aroma has nice notes of malty grain, caramel, dark fruits, and a touch of fruityness. Taste is semi-sweet with mild notes that match the aroma. Grain, caramel, and slight dark fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly dryer finish. Overall pretty tasty. Not huge flavours but they are there and well blended. Would have again.
