12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Beers, New Kensington. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of stone fruits, citrus and caramel. The taste is caramel malts, some toast, stone fruits, citrus and just the faintest band-aid note. Medium bodied.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weak aroma, color lighter than I prefer, drinkable but very ordinary taste with no depth or complexity, just so so

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark orange medium full off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, bread, caramel. Medium sweet taste. Medium-thin body, highly carbonated, long mild bitter finish, too bubbly for me and the flavors just don’t come together quite right. Would not try again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is hoppy with grassy herbal hops and malty with sweet caramel malt. The appearance is light amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with sharp bitterness up front and an almost nutty finish. The palate is typical for the style. Overall not bad at all just a little sharp for my taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear medium-dark amber with a good rim head and dots of lace. The taste is musky caramel malt with a aftertaste that includes a bit of oily prune. Drinkable, but not worthing seeking out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle: this one pours a clear, coppery amber color. There was a small, fizzy off white head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing at all. Lighter aroma. Caramel malts, a hint of roastiness and maybe a hint of nuttiness. The taste is decent. Balanced without any real sweetness or bitterness. Some roasted malts, a hint of the nuttiness caramel malts and a hint of dryness in the finish. A decent brew!
