Tasted this at the 2012 Brew Week in Athens, Ohio. Pours clear copper with a thick white head. Has a caramel and bread aroma. Medium sweetness with a hint of bitterness. Medium body with a nice creamy, frothy texture. Very interesting beer and very enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is pretty husky and grainy with some sweetness and a light earthy and leafy hoppiness. The flavor is pretty weak, some thin and sweet grainy malt with a minimally bitter floral hoppiness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering huskiness. Meh, can’t say this one has much in the way of positive qualities.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Cloudy, deep gold body. Tight-bubbled, off-white head, lasting. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness, a bitterness that is more in the IPA category than the English Pale Ale category. Not a lot of nuance.

Rated based on notes taken 22 Feb 2012 -- This tasted very much like a California Common, but as a red. I liked it.

Beer of month club. Pours a clear gold - kinda looks like apple juice. Nose of sweet malts. Taste of caramel, malt, bread - good combination of sweetness and slight bitterness. Good beer.

Pretty solid beer. Not really special but still a very drinkable beer. A little bit of a lingering after taste.

Bottle from a 6-pack purchased at Wal-Mart and drank in our hotel room in Cincy. Amber appearance, bit of white head. Grass, sugar, caramel aroma. Nicely balanced. Nothing fantastic, but nothing to complain about.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice, clear deep amber with a small off white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Wonderful malty aroma of caramel, cereal, toasted peanuts and hazelnuts, and biscuits. Taste is also malt heavy with caramel, biscuits and wheat up front with peanuts and a bit of spices coming in behind that. Balanced out with a pretty strong earthy hop presence. Long toasty malt finish with a bit of hop bitterness. A bit too heavy on the malt in my opinion. Makes it a little hard to drink. Pretty much overwhelms your taste buds. Not a bad taste, mind you. Just an overabundance of it. Pretty full bodied with slick texture and moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty satisfying beer. Nice balance between hops and malts.
