NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Pours a light amber with a small white head. Aromas of malt and some grassy hop notes. Light biscuit flavors coming through but really not a lot going on here. Crisp light finish. It isn’t foul but it’s a bit bland.

foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Amber to light brown and mostly clear. Pours a ½” inch head that fades quickly. Decent amount of lacing and moderately carbonated. Aroma: toasted bread, caramel malts, earthy hops. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a fairly dry finish. Flavor: Flavors the aroma – a significant malt presence dominates this brew. Nice mix of toffee, whole wheat bread, and earthy hop spice. Overall: A very good session beer.

Pours amber with thin head. The aroma has some malt and caramel and an odd bit of booze. The flavor has a bit of caramel and malt with nice bitter balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ThisWangsChung (747) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 12 oz bottle poured into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes. A: Pours a clear amber/copper color, with a rather dinky-looking white head. Looks pretty good regardless. S: All I pick up here is some unsweetened caramel. T: The faintest twang of fruity esters builds to a caramel-y finish. Extremely unassuming. M: Crisp, dry, and light. If you’re going to showcase little in the way of flavor on the palate, this is how you do it. O: Nothing wrong with this per se...it’s just so bland, though. Really just one step up from BMC in my opinion.
