Straight from the can. Taste is nutty and clean. Something about it makes you feel like you’re in da UP. Lingering copper and nut aftertaste.

Can shared with multiple others at brewclub. Pours a thin, short lived head, over a clear amber (SRM 14) body.....nose is light toffee/caramel, mild grains......taste is light toffee/caramel, slight cereal.....mouth feel light, carbonation medium. This is a light beer, drinkable, but with minimal to recommend it. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5.

Can. Clear amber with a light white head. Aroma is mild malt, a little musty. Taste is mild, body is medium so it’s not too weak -- has enough substance. I like this -- easy to drink with taste & body.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - Pours deep, dark amber with a thick fluffy off-white head. Lightly soured malt, with some breadiness and a touch of herbal hops. Wow, there’s barely any flavor in this at all. A light maltiness, with a mineral quality and basically no hop presence. Light yeastiness in the finish. Really inoffensive, but would like a bit more flavor even for a session beer.

Pours a clear light brown, rocky head, and lots of bubbly carbonation. Malt forward, nice "bock" aroma. Light malt flavor with a hidden sourness. Medium-light body, somewhat dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 8/20/10. 12oz Can. Hazy with a dark amber hue. Layer of off-white head. Aromas of cereal grains and caramel with a subtle, sweet fruity ester. Nice nose! Medium bodied and full of sweet malts. Bready and mild caramel. Dry finish with a slight hop bitterness. The finish is mild with a mix of both bitter and sweet. Not too bad at all!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured clear rusty amber with a light brown head that slowly dissipated to the edges. Aroma was grain, cereal and hay with a slight pine hop backbone. Flavor was similar, the grain was bit sweeter, but the same pine hop backbone was still present and grew toward the finish.

On tap at the brewpub. It looked pretty, smelled OK, but then it was a very sour beer--seemed as if the tap lines needed some cleaning. Very disappointing.

12oz can. Describing your beer as Oktoberfest-style ale is just a bad call, in my opinion. Hazy brown-red color. Beige head. An OK amber or red, nothing extraordinary. Very malt centered, not much hop character. Fruity tones from the amber malt. Inoffensive session beer.
