Very enjoyable brew with heavy toasted caramel and toffee malt, crystal and molasses malts. A slight grassy and citrus hop that balances well. Nice heavy malt with good crisp finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, toasted brown body with a small-sized, wispy, near white head.
Smell: Toasted malts with an instantaneous, distinct husky scent that grabs you, though not in a good way. A little wisp of herbal hops, though, there’s little to the aroma beyond the huskiness.
Taste: Bready, lightly toasty malts with a noticed husky quality to it. Lightly sweet, with a low touch of caramel. Modestly fruity. Herb tinged hoppiness, also low, with little bitterness present. Encroaching wearying wateriness as you proceed to the empty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: A lacking, humdrum lager. No Mas.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear dark amber with a frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is caramel malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a chewy sweet malt, light yeast, hoppy bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 12/28/14
Aroma: The aroma is sweet and malty, caramel, some bread, spice, and a little orange
Appearance: This one pours a murky orange-brown color, with a small tan head and streaky lace
Flavor: Tastes rather sweet, with a light spice component that the sweetness dominates
Palate: The body is medium, it is fairly sticky on the mouth, with a lively carbonation
I thought this one was okay. It gets a bit too sticky, and lacks that balancing component to make it a better beer. It also feels a little too muddled. It is not bad, but it is not all that good either.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s a style I rather enjoy, this one. It appears as the way I imagine it will smell somehow. Coppery russet in colour, but clear and carrying the remnants of some ugly grey head. It smells of gorgeous caramel malts and bready yeastiness and tastes similar. It is sweet but not cloying and very drinkable.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber with a thin head. Aroma is sweet malt. Flavor is very very sweet and some malt. Nice but too sweet.
