Good malty smell. Amber red translucent color with small tan head. Taste the malt and hops with some spiciness. Had lingering bitter floral taste. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on top of a copper body. Smell is wet grain and a little earthy. Taste has good malt sweetness, but not too much. Mild bitterness. Bready and malty overall. Crisp, but still smooth texture with moderate carbonation and medium body. A good beer. If you find one, drink it.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma of caramel dominated over anything else. There is a nice bready malty quality. Very clean and easy drinking. Well made.

Poured into Free State shaker glass. A nice amber color with good head. medium bodied, and a round caramel tone, but not a caramel sweet one. Clean character. A good beer.

12 oz bottle to glass. Recd in trade from RobertDale aroma of slight toffee and malt. Between medium and dark amber orange pour. Taste is balanced. Slight malt sweetness. Some hops but just the right amounts. EASY to drink. Thanks Bob

Beer is drinkable, but it seems a tad too malty. Strong apricot syrup flavor.

freeofthoughts (647) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Tap pours a light copper with some off white foam. Light aroma of grain and light sweetness. The taste is simple but very smooth. A light earthy spice with drying flowery hops compliment the grain well to create a well finished product. There is a subtle nuttiness going with the hops that linger vying for palate space with the spice from the grain. Smooth and very easy to drink, this should be served in a liter glass.
