Bottle into shaker. Light head dissipates quickly. Translucent medium amber color. Nutty resin aroma. Malty sweet flavor with pine and doughy notes. Spritzy feel on front side with sticky sweet finish. Not bad.

scotchzombie (284) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours amber orange-red and mostly clear with an off-white head that fades to a rim. No lacing. Aroma is bread, malt, caramel. Taste is semi-sweet with more bread, malt and caramel. Maybe some toffee and butterscotch. Moderate carbonation and a touch of bitterness in the finish. Straightforward but very drinkable. I like this a lot as a session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Smells good but mild. Hard to place the scent. Pours dark amber with a light head that lingers around the edges. Taste is also hard to place. A little bitter and almost no aftertaste. Mild carbonation. It’s okay.
