Nothing special. Aroma is very mild, notes of bready malt. Malt come through in taste, with hop finish.

From a can, poured into a pint glass. Beautiful amber color with a nice lacy head. Very light and refreshing taste.

16 ounce can thanks to Sledutah. Amber color and some basic caramel. Not too flavorful. Dull finish.

Can from HomeBrewStuff. Quite a disappointment. On all counts, this brew falls short for the style, dry, murky, musty, metallic.

arondee (599) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pours a dark copper brown color with a big thick white head. Aroma is very light. I smells some grass, light malts, that’s about it. The taste is light and refreshing but ultimately boring. Light malts, no hops to speak of, watery. There’s a fruity characteristic to it. Unfortunately there’s a weird metallic thing I keep getting after every sip that I really don’t like.

12oz can poured to pint glass. Nice off white two finger head with good retention. Minimal lacing. Malty biscuit, caramel and toffe notes, no detected hop aroma. Hazy golden color. Tastes of caramel, biscuit and minimal hops bittering. Low carbonation and watery mouthfeel. Not bad but not great either. Cheers!

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2015
[Tap] Pours a medium amber color. Little head to speak of. Nose of amber malts, caramel and light fruity notes. Caramel, toffee, biscuits, floral hops and cookie flavors. Thin, like all of their beers. No off flavors. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

OldMrCrow (2308) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Tap at the Peace Tree in Moab.

Not nearly the depth of the red rye IPA that preceded it, but it’s a perfectly unobjectionable session amber. Modest hops, balanced grains, enough going to avoid embarrassing itself at 4%. No reason for hate.

WOW -- nice. This is a session, but the flavor suggests otherwise. Incredibly flavorful toasted malts. HIGHLY recommended.

Poured into shaker pint from 16oz can. Aroma is bready, crackery, no hop aroma noticeable. Taste follows, biscuity, malty, bready. Balanced with a clean bitterness.
