I think this beer is a little underrated. I was impressed with this beer from lazy magnolia. It is a very interesting representation of this style. This does not drink like an 8% beer. Hay, brown sugar, and pineapple on the nose. Crisp body with some caramel, green apple, and apricot. Reveals more as I drink it. I would recommend this beer.

Westchesterco (1092) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Poured from a bottle it is a clear caramel color with a frothy head. The aroma is pineapple with dome citrus and the taste is bitter with some black licorice flavor that lingers on the palate

Bottle->SA. Dark copper with small offwhite head. A: floral hops over caramel malt, cardboard. T: bittersweet floral hops, pine, sweet malt. Hint of a metallic note in the aftertaste. Crisp, but far from a standout.

tia (1008) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Tap @ Can Can. Caramel with thin heed same decent lacing. Smells a little like dried apricot and brown sugar with a citric hint. Not a lot of distinctive flavor, very balancrd. Neither particularly sweet not hoppy. Fairly light-bodied.

DrSilverworm (6934) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2014
4oz on tap at Lucky’s in Dayton. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good thicker lace on the side of the glass. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, light carbonation, kind of creamy texture. Light slick texture. Bigger caramel malt, kind of spicy piney and sweet. Bigger sweet biscuity malt. OK stuff... Kind of a bigger malty caramel bready sweetness to this, more sweet than bitter. Hop doesn’t stand up to the malt. Towards the end gets overly sweet, hindering drinkability.
