San Antonio, TX - on tap at the brewpub. Medium copper, light off-white head, brief lacing. Neutral aroma - not picking up anything. Standard brewpub amber flavor, light citrus, hint of caramel, traces of nuttiness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Decent session starter.

chinchill (2897) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in the outskirts of San Antonio. Clear deep amber color with a durable off-white head that leaves fine lacing. Aroma: sweet and simple. Flavor: loaded with caramel and roasted grains, it also has a surprising chocolate tone. Feel: light-medium body and near medium carbonation. . O: modestly above average for style.

Shanebrews (221) - Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2014
This is bitter for the style. It pours well and looks good. It has the malt base for the bitterness. Good but not my favorite way of doing the style.

Tap at the source. Good palate for the style. Some caramel and dough in taste. Hops a bit much but drinkable
