Very good beer! Poured this at a good temperature with a large, thick, foamy, cream-colored head that slowly settles and a little lace. Color is an almost clear, honey amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is a fresh, volatile mix of malt, hop, toffee, yeast, a little fruit. Flavor’s like nose, on the dry side, with a little residual fruitiness; carbonic tang and yeast/hop bitter are all up front and work well together. Body is excellent - has a softness that is checked by great carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and is super drinkable. Could drink the hell outta this one.

500mL thanks to Travlr. Pours clear amber with weak foam. Nose is malty with sugary juicy juice. Taste is soapy, detergent, apple skin. Ick. Just trash. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle:   Amber hued caramel, a little dirty, large pillowy sandy head, nice lacing.   Soft mealy malts on the nose.   Slightly dusty.   Soft biscuity malt flavors, not too heavy, decent body and mouthfeel.   Nothing exceptional, clean tho.   Very slight grains and nuttiness lingers.   Seems a darker example of the style, perhaps a little heavier.   Decent, but a little boring.   More points if it were a touch sweeter.

(Bottle). Hazy amber complexion with creamy opaque head. A mild light malty flavor. Classic old-school brew haus session style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
