Scent of malt, toffee, and yeast. Clear copper colour. Slight sweetness at the front followed by mild bitterness. Flavours of Malt, carmel, and wine. Medium body with mild carbonation. Nothing too memorable.

Had it in a king can. Every sip reminded me of tequila. Not something I enjoy. Will pass next time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark amber with an off white head. There is very little aroma and the taste is malt, biscuit, caramel, toasted bread, nuts and medium to low bitterness. It goes down smooth and the carbonation is limited but there is lacing left on the glass. Overall this beer is worth a try but there is nothing to separate it from the crowd for the style. The drinkability is high and you don’t notice the slightly above average abv.

maxwelldeux (3870) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Can. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a moderate tan head on there. First whiff had some fig and raisins in there, with a lot of grass and stale grains to it. Taste is slightly bitter, with a very smooth creamy feel to it. OK, but nothing great.

beer-yum (655) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 24, 2014
Came in a clear bottle (which is not usually a good sign in my book) but the beer itself was quite enjoyable in the end. Very much a middle of the road take on the style but makes a nice addition to a session nonetheless.

Listigovers (382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Nice pour, ruby and copper with dense small off-white head. Mild caramel aroma. Light bodied and refreshing, mild hops for a slight bitterness and lots of malt, slight metallic taste. Easy drinking and straightforward.
