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.

Amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and malty. Thin-bodied and a little bit chewy. Blandly sweet and a little bit herbal and chewy. There is a touch of rancid character that I canít say Iím a fan of. Meh

12 ounce bottle shared by MaltDawg at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Pours a clear amber color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts and some caramel. The taste is bitter hops, fruity notes and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Boring.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2011
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

arminjewell (6070) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2011
Pours slightly hazy reddish brown, with no head. Aroma has notes of lots of crystal malt, with a touch of caramel, toffee, some earth and grass. Taste is thin, but has notes of caramel, biscuit, dark fruit, finishing harshly carbed and slightly bitter.

DrSilverworm (6010) - 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.
