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. It’s a brew that will seduce your heart, mind and palette.

Clear amber light brown color medium off-white head. Nose is almost exclusively brown sugar. Medium to light body, sweet without much hop bitterness, quick finish. Very basic.

PorterPounder (5713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2014
St. Augustine, Fl - Broudy’s Liquors, 12 oz stubby bottle. Pours a lifeless medium copper, no head. Aroma has some mealy vegetable accents, a hint of molasses. flavor is muddled with some overripe vegetables, some molasses, just a hint of chocolate. Amber ale? Far from it. Oily mouuthfeel. Did not finish this one.

Draft at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. Pours a dark amber color. Aroma and taste are very mild (nearly lacking) - caramel and malts.

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
pours slightly hazy medium dark golden orange with a small slightly creamy off-white-orange head, some retention and lacing. lagering mellow fruity notes, peaches and apricots, fruity berries as well, floral and lightly earthy undertones, grassy and herbal as well, tea leaves, lightly toasted cereals, dash of caramel. a bitter-like oriented brew for sure. moderately low carbonation, light body, dry and crisp spicy-peppery-gently earthy finish. subtle, mellow and nice. not saying this often, but this one seems underrated, or let’s just say misunderstood.

umich03jm (2179) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Pours a clear copper color with almost no head. Aroma is straight up caramelized malt with maybe a touch of toast. Tastes like a basic watery red ale. Certainly not bad but just boring. Some hop bitterness in the finish. Ok.
