On tap at Beer Rev. I am at home now lying in bed doing a review from 45 min old memory.... May god have mercy on my soul. Taste good, smells good, looks like a relish beer, what else can be said? Tons-o-flavour for such a low alc. No real faults, maybe just maybe hints of soap. Now as I lie in bed to lazy to have brushed my teeth I can taste metal and caramel in the lingering after taste. I could drink the ship out of this beer!

Not too bad for an ale. A little hoppy but not near as intense as others. I wouldn’t turn one down but if it’s more than a couple I would probably take a pass...

MiamiBarman (33) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2014
From bottle to glass Aroma: smells of delicious caramel maltyness, slight hint of chocolate Appearance: a clear light copper body with a just off-white well-sized head Taste: light on the bitter, medium on the sweet Palate: feels very light-bodied and thin with soft carbonation. The finish however is pretty long for a beer of this type. Leaves quite the impression. I really enjoyed this easy-drinking ale. Very smooth caramel malts with the slightest bitterness. I would definitely enjoy this again.

OldMrCrow (1812) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Bob’s.

Amber-brown pour with a reasonable-sized off-white head. The nose is surprisingly fruity, some yeast as well. Relatively thin as one might expect at 4.3%, flavors brown bread with metal and some cider.

Not bad, not spectacular, props for low 4% abv.

On top of a nice orange amber body sits a good two finger tall eggshell colored foam head. The head hangs on well and makes cool lace patterns on the glass. The aroma has a nice sweet maltiness with caramel and a good balance of citrus hops. Up first there is a simple bready maltiness with some mild caramel like sweetness and light toasted grain with faint hints of fruitiness. This is balanced by pleasant citrus and leafy hop bitterness. The medium body has a smooth feel and drinks easily.
