355mL to flute Smells like straw, caramel malts, and a bit of sourness. Clear amber with a nice 1cm long lasting tan head. A bit of hay in the taste, bitterness and slight sourness at the end.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Pours a rather murky deep gold with a thin bit persistent head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet - almost too sweet - caramel malt. Very malty body, slight staleness, lightly sour but pleasantly bitter hops in the finish. Reminds me a bit of an ESB. Light carbonation, chewy body. Almost... But not quite quaffable.

Bottle. Stale malty aroma. Hazy orange amber with a large beige head. Burnt toast and sugar flavor with a light bitter hop finish. Light to medium body. Not particularly bad, but not especially enjoyable either.

ALLOVATE (2349) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2012
Shimmering but strangely hazy ruddy copper body with a bad case of the the sea-monkeys. Carbonation is very fine managing only a thin, tight and flabby off-white head that is depleting. Peanut husks, toffee and butterscotch, teabags and orange marmalade on the nose, phenolic and sweet. Its got a raw character to it in the mouth. Very yeasty, doughy, milky with a roasted malt note and husky, grainy backend. Sharp, acrid bitterness on the finish that has a touch of smoky, bandaid phenolics. Body is medium light, oily, with light carbonation. A developing citrus note plays in late into drinking. Nothing much here. A few off characters, but all in check. It’s just kind of bland really!

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2012
This was a pretty malty offering from He’Brew (for an amber). The body was brown and with a large head, suggested moderate carbonation. Aromas were mellow and fruity with a hint of yeast and bread in the mix. The mouth feel was smooth and again, mellow with hints of caramel, toffee and bitter hops. Not bad at all, and incredibly drinkable.

Hmmm...bottle pour. Nose is light caramel/chocolate with some light citrus notes. Taste is pretty similar. Not bad but nothing to write home about...

Citrus aroma with a gold copper appearance. A nice crisp but not bitter grapefruit taste, from theincredible cascade dry hopping. Taste great through to finish. I was pleasantly surprised at how good this kosher brew tastes.

dougdecinces (118) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2012
On tap. Poured a pale gold. I had this beer yesterday and honestly don’t remember much about it other than it being average in just about every way. Not bad, but pretty unremarkable.

KyotoLefty (6176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2012
Draught at Devil Craft. Fruity, metallic nose, hoppy, light citrus. Cherry and metal flavors, light citrus, light caramel, and an interesting fruity gumball aspect. Rather German in malt flavors. Decent.

Clear, light brown color. Modest malt sweetness and roasted malt flavor. Decent, but not unique.
