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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 can’t say I’m a fan of. Meh

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

12oz bottle, purchased for $1.66 from Dutch’s. 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 it’s too-light body, is actually pretty decent though. It’s toasted and savory, delivering a nice umami taste.
