2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bears little resemblance to a lager with a thick creamy body and a rounded slightly fruity character. Very low on both aromas and flavors. Some alcohol warming in the chest but no alcohol flavor despite strength.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-6-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a clear golden-amber color with a thick one finger white head. The head has fantastic retention eventually fading to give nice lacing.
Smell – The smell is bready and sweet. A caramel and toffee sweetness mixed with a biscuit maltiness. There is also a light hoppy aroma as well, although this is very light.
Taste – A smooth bready and doughy flavor meets the tongue. There is a lighter caramel sweetness up front that grows stronger more toward the middle of the taste. In the middle the sweet and bready taste create a rather smooth sweetness. At the end a very light hoppy flavor of an earthy and citrus nature as well as some alcohol flavor comes to combine with the rest of the flavors. While perturbing the smooth taste of the brew, it did bring an element of change and ended up leaving a somewhat pleasing
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was rather creamy with only a light carbonation level. Very nice for the smooth bready flavors of the beer.
Overall – It is a very tasty and soothing brew with some nice sweet bready flavors. One to sit back and enjoy.

Purchase by December 2013. Uh, oh. 12oz bottle poured into stange. Lovely auburn color with thin white head that quickly fades. No lacing. Aroma indicates oxidation, but caramel malt comes through. Flavor is pleasantly malty, however tinny oxidation is hard to get over. Medium body, creamy texture, lower carbonation, semi-dry finish. Drank a quarter and then drain poured, but would definitely give a fresh one a shot.

Sweet fruity aroma. Thin head on a clear dark amber body. Malt and fruit smooth taste.A sense a crispness in the background which gives it some character. Has a nice clean finish.

Pours a light amber color with a hoppy aroma. Taste is mildly fruity with a malty backbone. The flavors quickly disappears after the swallow but an earthy banana flavor is left behind. The malt is clean, smooth and is refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home via jcnielsen courtesy toss. Pours a surprisingly dark orange appearance with a thin off white head. Some orange candy, sweet toasted malty, bready aroma with a touch of cardboard. Carbonation is dull. Some citrus fruits in the flavor. Dull toasted grainy flavor. Strong finish. Not very good. Maybe a fresher bottle could have been better but I don’t think so.

Bottle. Clear dark gold with a thin ring of white head. Aroma is bready maul and Noble hops. Very pungent. Taste follows suit with some fruity sweetness on the end. Not as crisp as I'd like. Not terrible.
