Nutty pecan nose, distinct but not strong. Clear dark copper, headless. Sweet malt, metallic, nutty. Light caramel and pecan notes. Mouthfeel is watery. Quaffable. I could occasionally be in the mood for this.

[Bottle] Deep amber pour with highlights of red. Soapy white head doesn’t last too long. Nose is of caramel, toffee and earthy hops. Taste is of more caramel malts, toffee, grass, bread and faint hops. Not a ton happening in the flavor department, but this beer makes up for it in having a solid body. Highly drinkable as well. Tasting notes from 1/2012.

11.2 oz bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger off-white head that does not last, amber color, not much lacing. Aroma: light floral, caramel, basement yeast. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, sticky texture. Taste: sweet molasses throughout. Overall, so drinkable and pretty well balance. One of my most drank beers and my favorite of the Sessions.

This is an old log that I’m filling in so I do not remember the specifics of the tasting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle received via Secret Santa. Copper with very little head and no retention. Some corn husk, fruity notes, and caramel in the scent. While unexciting, this isn’t too bad and goes down easily. Fruity and malty sweetness, some earthy undertones, a touch of grass, and light bitter hops in the finish. A drinkable Amber Ale.

Pours amber with a white head. Smells earthy, some light spicy hints. Tastes of caramel, some light spice, vegetal finish. Tastes like a watered down Amber Ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A caramel dominated lager with hints of the minty glacier hop. Not too bad. Easy drinking, different from something like Yuengling. I’d buy it again at this really fancy price of 1 buck.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a capped 12oz bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to Drake for sharing. Pours bright copper orange with a thick white head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is caramel malt forward with a touch of spicy hops, and a touch of spicy straw. The flavor is about the same, pretty light with some caramel malt and dusty straw with just a bit of bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium dusty, lightly spicy hops finish.

Bottle as an extra in a trade - thanks Chris! Dark amber pour with a whispy white head. Nose is popcorn and malt. Taste is quite smooth and simple with a subtle malt character on the finish. No bitterness. Super easy to drink.
