Not bad, a little floral. Decent malty flavor but a little on the watery side.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that has a copper hued core and supports a modest tan head of foam. The aroma offers up caramel malts, biscuit like malts and thin soft sweet smelling pear and apple fruity esters. The taste delivers a blend of caramel malts, biscuit malts, a bit of roasted malts and then mild vague bitter hoppiness. To midway a thin layer of fruity esters surfaces with sweet notes like pears, red apples and figs come to the surface. This various malts and mild fruity esters hang on deep into the after taste. Pretty nice.

12oz bottle, Copper orange like color. Malty grains with herbal hop aromas. Earthy grainy taste up front with lite bitterness. This has a grainy like finish also. Doesn’t work for me.

12oz bottle. Amber-Orange with little white head. Caramel malt aroma and a little honey. The taste is a little sweeter than most of the style, but it isn’t overpowering. Malt, honey, floral. Enjoyable.

Pretty decent little beer, far from the best tho. Copper colored beer, no lacing, small head fades off, decent aroma, malty, strong. Taste is pretty good, reminds me of fruit and scotch alright.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid. A nice lager. Has a bit more kick than expected in this style, and wouldn’t mind a wee more malt flavor.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an acceptable seasonal offering. The potentially crisp, caramel, toasty aspect of the flavor is blunted by a honey like sweetness that takes it in the wrong direction as far as I am concerned. Not bad. Just not to my liking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty nice rendition of the style. Aroma is malt driven, light bread and honey. The color and palate are light, but the flavor comes through a little more with a touch of extra richness.

24 oz sample on tap at The Burger Saloon in Woodland. Aroma has some sweet toffee and caramel. Lightly metallic, too. Transparent copper-Orange body with a small, cream-colored head. Starts with a moderately sweet, nutty, and husky maltiness. Light metallic twang in the middle . Finishes a little herbal, and slightly dry. Not shabby.
