COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its call is intoxicating. An aroma that beckons you to pull up a stool and linger over its toasted malt character. Next, a deep kiss of liquid lust that will caress your tongue, thanks to an array of toasty Pale, Crystal (30 and 75), what, Carapils and roasted barley malts balanced by the subtle bite of Willamette and Fuggle hops. Itís a brew that will seduce your heart, mind and palette.

2011-11-12. Dark amber-red brown body is nearly headless. 3+ Pretty mild flavour, sweet malt and a bit of caramel, overly sweet. Similar aroma, sweet sugary caramel malt. 5+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. 3+ Inoffensive it is clearly aimed at a broader market, but kind of bland, and a bit too sweet overall. On tap at Jolly Pumpkin Cafe, Ann Arbor

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2011
11.5oz bottle picked up at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a mostly clear, copper colored body with a thin, frothy, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is fairly fruity and somewhat watery with a bit of a grainy toast, a touch of sweet and chewy caramel, and a light herbal hopping. Flavor is similar. Fruity with some grainy toast up front before a lightly sweetened caramel and herbal hopping comes in. Finishes pretty dry with a light toast and herbal bitterness along with some cardboard before leaving a medium length aftertaste with some florals coming out along with the grainy toast. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty bland amber. Not terrible, but not good. Eh...

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a very small off white head. Toasted malt aroma with a hint of caramel and fruit. Big malty flavor with sourdough and roasted nuts. Dry texture with average carbonation. A very drinkable amber.

DrSilverworm (8705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2011
12oz bottle, purchased for $1.66 from Dutchís. Clear, amber color. What little head there is, it is very bubbly and active. Lots of bubbles on the side of the glass. The malt, despite itís too-light body, is actually pretty decent though. Itís toasted and savory, delivering a nice umami taste.
