Truly delicious beer; enjoyed a bottle (poured into a glass) for dessert at Quartino in Chicago. Itís a style I usually donít appreciate, but this was enjoyable start to finish and gave me a new appreciation for it. Sweet maltiness gives great flavor and is understated but rich; itís really smooth in the mouth.

Bread and malt aroma. But brings to mind bad memories of stale, spilled beer. Nice color, and interesting taste. Pretty mild but sharp notes ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best before January 27, 2013.
Appearance: This beer is beautiful, a crystal clear dark amber body shows off a lot of carbonation in the body as a towering fluffy and rocky tan head leaves a lot of lacing as it slowly dissipates.
Aroma: Very clean aroma, hints of caramel and a touch of spicy hops.
Taste: Bready malts with a sweet caramel flavor that is introduced in the mid-taste, very light hop presence on the finish.
Palate: Medium oily body, lively carbonation.
Overall: This is a really good beer that I could drink all day. This is something I would give to a Yuengling drinker so they could have something a bit more balanced with a fuller flavor.

Color is a nice clear red amber with a 1 finger white head with tight bubbles. Aroma hits you with biscuit bready malts and some sweetness. Taste followes the nose exactly with huge bready malts. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth with soft carbonation. Great example of the style.

Clear amber, minimal white head, soapy lacing. Nose shows light fruity malts, bread, and a bit of caramel. Flavor is a little less fruity, but still shows a fairly sweet malt profile. Minimal hop presence. Medium bodied, light carbonation, slightly sweet lingering finish.

Draft. Pours a deep copper color with a nice lacing head. Nice malty aroma with a hint of lemon. Dry taste with a nice mix of hops and malt. Kind of smokey as well. Solid balance with a complicated finish.
