Tastes of citrus, biscuit, wheat, slight sweet malt. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, juicy mouthfeel. Tasty.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can, thanks to Treebute! Pours a nice, clear, copper color with a small, foamy, beige head. The aroma is resin, pine sap, sourdough bread, and peanuts. Sweet and bready, with a significant, resinous bitterness. Light to medium body, sticky, and astringent. Overall, this is not a very pleasant beer. The aroma is a little dank, and the flavor is overly, and unpleasantly, bitter.

Copper in color with a decent head that faded fast. Citrus in smell with an okay initial taste. Good for a hot day but not memorable enough for me to have another.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2014 Can: Thanks, Jeff. Hazy, obscure amber (go figure) body with a burnt beige, silky film that wafts towards the edges of the glass in moments. Aroma of buttery toast, tame Munich malt, earthy, almost English-type hoppage, & a touch of vague fruitiness that I was never able to pin down. Slightly metallic taste, perhaps a touch astringent with more caramel & Munich maltiness, dusty & dirty hops, earthy leaves. Slightly aggressive, hoppy finish, I guess at least more so than you’d expect from a little amber ale like this. Crisp, light bodied. Decent, but nothing more. A little heavy on the metallic notes in the flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Budz! Aroma is moderately hoppy, slightly peppery. No idea what this looks like, drank out the can! Taste is initially sweet that quickly gives way to a moderate bitterness and some great toasty flavors, almost crusty, but short of burnt or roasted. Very complex maltiness but doesn’t fill you up, drying but not astringent finish. quite good. would repeat for sporting events much and more.

Can: (4.5% ABV)
Hazy amber-brown with a frothy beige head.
Scent is earthy, leafy, toasted malt.
Taste is slightly woody/nutty....a little bittering.
Not bad, a little dull, overall, though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from can as cans were intended. Slightly sweet bread smell. Solid but not malty backbone with a fair grassy/ piney hop presence. Thin mouthfeel. Refreshing

Another can from the same recent trade. A little less entertaining here but still sessionable and drinkable. A little thin but you definitely get some toffee and caramel malt working. Slight grass hops but faint again. Finish is earthy and grassy. Ok but not incredibly exciting.
