12oz in Seattle. Copper. Pale amber aroma. metallic, quite musty. Nothing terribly interesting, nor unappealing. Ok.

Lenin would be proud to drink this stuff. Hints of caramel. Very little foam... low carbonation (or did I just get an old bottle of this stuff).

Little aroma, dominated by Carmel malt. Looks great. Medium amber body. Good malt taste with just enough hops to balance.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy reddish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Caramel malt and hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of dank malt, caramel and citrusy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Malty aroma, not too much, though. Fairly decent slightly roasted malt flavour. Watered down feel.

reebtogi (3842) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
355ml bottle pours an orange amber color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some hints of chocolate and roasted barley and citrus. Taste is bold caramel malt sweetness with some roasted grain and citrusy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, very malt forward brew with some light hops and was respectable but not a great example of the style.

improvjock (317) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a tarnished copper with light tan head. Caramel malts in the aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet malts, but with a hint of citrusy hops. Pretty good amber.

Bottle. Dark red brown pour. Hoppy aroma. Overly grained taste. Nothing special.........

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden amber to orange with a small white head. Aroma is roasted malty and light fruity. Bitter, citric and smooth toasted caramelish malty. Light fruity hoppy note towards the end.
