Mostly caramel nose, manifesting as sugar daddy. Appearance is nice, dark orange/copper. Nice lacing pattern. Nice well balanced sweet , a bit of hops, a bit of fruit. Decent. Thanks Kathy, for bringing this one back from your fridge in PA for me.

Balanced, malty with a nice hops finish. Not too strong. A bit trashy, earthy, and pale. Not a standout.

krumbum (523) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Clear brown color. Smells very malty sweet. The taste starts off very malty almost too much but the dryness of the finish saves it, for me.

Bottle pour into a pint for this brew at Burch steakhouse. I don’t care about the organic part, there are better esbs out there.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has strong toffee and biscuit malt characteristics, with light floral hops notes. Floral and sweet citrus hops up front give way to quite rich biscuit and toffee malt in the mid-palate. The finish is quite savoury, with nutty notes coming through, but leaves a slightly odd aftertaste. This is far from the world’s most exciting beer, but not too bad, aside from its unusual aftertaste.

This is a pretty mediocre beer. Somewhat watery, grassy and stale tasting. Pours amber.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Pours light amber with a bit of light tan head. Aroma of citrus and a bit of grapefruit. Taste is a bit sweet with mainly bitter tones. Finish oily and low in carbonation. Overall a decent but nothing special

12oz served into a SA perfect pint glass. A - Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Average lacing. S - Sweet cereal grains, caramel malts, biscuits. T - Yeasty bread, caramel, sweet cereal grains, grapes, and hints of citrus. It finishes up semi-dry with a light earthy toastedness. M - Creamy carbonation, medium body, smooth feel. This was straightforward and pretty good. Needs a little more hops but drinks nice. Caramel malts and a sweet grain flavor dominate. I would drink this again. Serving type: bottle 05-18-2012
