3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bit lighter than I thought it would, and the malty aroma signals the taste to come. Caramel and toffee malt tastes dominate, with some whitebread toast flavor peaking near the finish. Immeadiately after this toast flavor, the hops start to shine with a mellow bitterness that nicely rounds off the beer. Body is wet and light, but this seems to work well for the taste.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light toasty, slightly grassy scent. Taste is light but flavorful. Toasty malts with a very nice yet faint hop flavor. Very refreshing and tasty, easy to drink.

Bottle. An unclear orange beer with no head. The aroma is quite light, but what is there is sweet and acidic, with light notes of caramel. The flavor is also a combination of sweetness and light acidity, combined with notes of hops. Nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark riddish-orange hue. Decent head and adequate lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt with some honey mixed in for good measure. Nice balancing of hoppiness on the palate. Clean aftertaste leaving just enough sweetness on the finish. Crisp as a good lager should be. Would make a good breakfast beer. One of their better beers, but not anything very interesting. Ordinary, but not bad.

An all malt masterpiece! Very smooth flavor and dangerously drinkable.. A real man’s session beer right here!

Straight from my birthday keg. Wow -- when they say "a generous amount of caramel malt" they aren’t kidding. Aroma is heavy caramel malt. Rich, mouth-coating malty flavor goodness. Very smooth and full, with hops lingering at the end, giving a slightly metallic finish along with tickling, light carbonation. This beer tastes as it looks -- full, rich, and caramelly in a beautiful amber liquid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium red with a tan head. The aroma has a hint of hops but a lot of caramel and a touch of citrus. The flavor is all malts. Caramel, brown sugar comes through strongly, with an even hop finish. Very good beer!

12 oz bottle rich flavor not the best in appearance but makes up in taste taste of fruit and very easy but favorable hop taste. great taste I would buy this beer again. I had the celebration beer before this but this is probably their flagship brew, I like it better.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is slightly yeasty and caramel. Pours reddish amber. Pillowy white head, that recedes to an outer ring. Flavor is a lightly roasted malt center with dry, slightly spicey (cloves, resin) finish. Medium light body. Very drinkable, nicely balanced.

Bottle: dark copper with white head. Aroma has a nice carmel sweetness. Nice smooth and lightly sweet taste. Almost a really nice beer. But I prefer more carbonation and fullness. What I have noticed about the case is that the beers have a watery finish.
