A nice clear amber body with a beige head that had good retention and great lacing. Aroma had caramel malts upfront, some floral hops and a mild but off putting dirt presence. Flavor was nice mostly one dimensional but nice. A good sweet malt presence and some mild hops. It had almost no bitterness to it, but at the same time was not overly sweet being that all I could get is sweet malts. Finish was nice and smooth. Decent beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours copper amber in color with a light medium head. This is pretty much just a solid American ale. Nice grassy hop note with enough malty character to balance. Crisp finish.

Transfer from BA review on 8-4-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep ruby almost brownish color with a two finger tan colored head. The head fades over a few minutes to give a light level of lacing. Smell – The smell is heaviest of roasted malt. Mixed with this aroma are lighter notes of toffee and some coffee. Taste – A sweeter roasted malt flavor meets the tongue. The sweetness is of toffee while the malt is of roasted barley. In the middle these flavors are met with mild dark fruit flavors. Toward the end some light pine hop notes enter the flavor and bitter it slightly with it helping to balance out some of the sweetness nicely. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer was creamier then I would have expected with a carbonation level that is quite average. The creamier body really suits the roasted flavors quite well while the carbonation creates just the right amount of tingle for the sweet flavors. Overall – Nothing too spectacular, but not a bad session amber.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Rather dark ruby/amber hue, small tan head, nice sweet malty aroma with some earthy note, sweet malty taste with a little too much carbonation and a finish that has a nasty macro-type bite. Still, not bad overall

jsmerig (1278) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours a dark ruby red. Very dark in fact. Aroma of pine and citrus hops with a slight cherry note. Taste is dark mildly sweet and roasted to start with a lingering smokiness and spiciness from the hops. Leaves a tingle behind. Coffee notes mixed in to the finish as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
