COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer derives its name from one of the world’s tallest peaks which, loosely translated, means "goddess rich in sustenance." Chock full of malted barley with mild hop overtones, this ale itself is rich in sustenance.

Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt and earthy hops, plus a bit of fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Brouwerij (914) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber with a finger of quickly diminishing off-white head. A little lacing. Very mild aroma, wheat, grain, hay. Flavor is wheat, bread/dough, malt, slight caramel. Moderate carbonation, light body, and a watery mouthfeel. Clean, light, drinkable, but could have a stronger, bolder flavor. They have much better beers.

Steve_0 (2523) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap at Vine Street Pub. Pour is clear amber with an off-white head and decent lacing. Perfumey, light roast, citrus, a touch of lemon, and biscuit in the aroma. Taste is light citrus, cereal, lemon, and biscuit with a light bitter finish. There is something about this beer that is pretty tasty but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Medium body with high carbonation .  Pretty nice amber.

Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Aroma reminds me almost of a toasted waffle. Pinkish red in color, slightly hazy. Caramel like undertones and a hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jnkor (314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Aroma is missing, but not unpleasant. Color is a dark amber, looking more like a Scott ale. Taste is carmel and more like a Scott ale than any amber I've had. Frothy an enjoyable, no bitterness in the finish.
