12oz bottle. Poured a dark orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Lighter floral, caramel and grainy aromas. Tastes of caramel and a little on the fruity side. Drinkable even if it is kinda boring.

Quaffable and satisfying. A medium yellow colour, minimum white head. Neutral aroma, medium mouthfeel. Decent beer all around,I could have one or two. Nothing edgy or really tasty though. Appropriate carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL courtesy of Atom. The pour is a hazy, orange amber. A large, beige head erupts with sheen, rocky appearance. Spotty lace. Nose is honey wheat bread, fresh orange, dough, rustic malt. Very nice actually. Taste is rich with unfortunately some heavy metallic character coming through and finishing with mild lemon and soap. Really hits the palate with quenching viscosity and citrus. Was in the running to be a real treat, but metallic notes throw it off.

Pint at the brewery tasting room. Crisp, fresh, livey hay flavored malts (lightly sweet, lightly chewy) with some greenish vegetal notes and some caramel chewiness, finishing with a mild tawng on the back. Good overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Acquired via trade. The beer is a dark copper/amber color with a thin beige head that dissipated rather quickly. Very thin lacing. Lightly malty aroma, with a hint of nuts. Medium-bodied with a flavor somewhere between a Marzen and a regular Amber. There is a tartness under the malt and caramel that made the character seem a little off. However it was still fairly easy to drink. The finish is alternatingly fruity and malty. Overall not an exceptional beer but it is smooth with a nice taste.
