Just ok. Nothing fabulous. Still drinkable. Listed as a hop session beer, yet not hoppy, but low alcohol ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper pour with thin head. Nose of caramel and toffee. Taste is hoppy and fades quickly. Carbonated palate with a thin finish. Decent flavors for a low abv beer.

slimspady (218) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
Light, brown, clear pour with 2 finger head in the SA pint glass. Sweet, malt in the nose. A little nutty, syrupy sweet. Med body but the flavor sticks around. Almost coats the inside of the mouth with sweetness. First impression was ok, but it gets better the further you get. Birthday beer #2. 071712

Bottle. Copper pour with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is rather malty with lots of caramel, earthy hops and tea leaves. Taste is chewy malt, caramel, toffee notes, floral notes, earthy hops and soft, spicy hops. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a moderate, creamy carbonation. Ends with more earthy and spicy hops, toffee, tea leaves, caramel and malt notes.

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 (1002) - 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.

queenholly (3593) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2012
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 (2720) - 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 (1311) - 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.
