Can from Blue Dog. Pours turbid deep orange with big 3-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, hops, mild fruit. Tastes vcery tangeriney, with dry florals and resiny hops in the flavor. Stays dry and hoppy throughout.

12oz can. Pours a slightly hazy amber with hues of orange. Aroma of caramel, pine and a touch of brown sugar. Flavor is caramel, resin, and a touch of citrus. Has a slightly bitter/sour aftertaste. I would like to try this on draught to see if there is a noticeable difference.

12oz local can. Thanks for making cans! Looked and smelled terrific but the flavor was around average for ambers. Fine overall.

RobertDale (3393) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Draft at brewery/pub. Pours clear amber with decent beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel with just a touch of hops. Tastes similar to aroma. OK at best.

Totally wrong. This beer’s taste is off in every way. The worst beer I’ve ever had.

IrishBoy (3821) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 11, 2010
12 oz bottle from theisti. Thanks! Nose is nutty with light caramel and some back ground maple. Clear copper with a HUGE beige head! Flavor has some caramel with an off taste and light diacetyl. Looks and smells good at least! It is drinkable but I wouldn’t want it except as an emergency fillin!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Can.
Pours a rich, deep, cloudy amber with a nice, two-finger high head of off-whte head. Aroma is malty sweet strawberry bread with a nice, subtle infusion of grapefruit and pine sap. Flavor is a flat, watery mess of malted grapefruit, water-soaked toast, and coppery nuts. Watery mouthfeel. Smells and looks awesome but tastes like crap. What a letdown.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2009
12oz can from Lukas in Overland Park. Pours a hazed, red-amber body with a two-finger width, rocky and foamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some nutty and lightly toasted caramel malts. A very light tobacco smoke and chocolate as well with no real hop notes. Flavor is a light toasted caramel and smoked tobacco with a nutty sweetness. Finishes with a light earthy bitterness. Dry after a medium body with a slightly soapy bitterness. Overall, this has a decent taste, but its really unexciting all-around. Its nice to see another Kansas brewery, but this could use some work.
