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!

1.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Had the aroma of nuts and caramel, cloudy redish color, the taste had hints of butterscotch the beer to me had no real aftertaste, a beer to drink if you can find it cheap.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks Dansting, Timmy and Caddylac for this delicous beer. Poured a clear amber with a pretty large white head. Instant smoke hits the nose, which was pretty suprising. Super toasty and creamy on the palate. soft semi sweet caramel undertones, but it’s hard to ignore the smokinessof this brew. Thanks guys!"

can sampled from glazers of kansas. pours hazy amber color with a cream head. light smoke flavor complements the caramel malt and butterscotch flavor that lingers. not bad if u want to take a better beer to the lake in a can.

Purchased in can. Hazy appearing cloudy amber colored ale. Aroma was light with slight malt. Head was barely noticeable and did not have much depth in flavor, sweetness or otherwise. Finishes without much fanfare. Overall, not for me.

4 oz sample at the brewpub. Pour is reddish golden with a small off white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of hazelnut and toasted malt. Taste is nutty maltiness, note of diacetyl. Palate is medium, a bit syrupy. Not a terribly clean beer.
