Not much in the form of aroma or taste. Has a lager aftertaste. Disappointing.

jeremyh70 (684) - Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Dark amber color with an off white head and good lacing. Aroma of floral hops mixed with light fruit and bready malt with a touch of caramel sweetness. Smells very fragrant and nice. Taste follows nose and is well balanced, with hops having a more herbal than floral character and you get some toastiness from the malt. Crisp mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. Drinkable and pleasant. Had on tap at the Bier Station.

Drunk from a bottle. Appears to have a nice head. Slightly hoppy and sweet. Not really the best.

Frahmo (283) - Idaho, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Brown color with a thick persisting light brown head. Great malty taste with a good hop kick towards the end. Great overall taste, I need more of this guy.

IndianaRed (2372) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a dense, think and lasting pillowy sandy head. Noble hops and slightly toffee malt aroma. Rich malty flavor, some bittering hops but not the west coast american variety. A little metallic touch, but a beer that tastes bigger than it is.

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber, off white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy caramel, moderate hops, fruit. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, citrus / bitter hops. medium duration. Please after taste.

foyle (232) - Wyoming, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Appearance: pours a healthy 2" sudsy cream colored head. Recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is deep amber, slightly cloudy, with moderate carbonation. Aroma: strong malt presence with raisins, caramel, and whole wheat bread. A bit of earthy hops in the background. Mouthfeel: standard fluffy English ale mouthfeel, fairly light bodied with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: a hearty brew. The malt dominates (as expected) with those raisin, caramel, and whole wheat bread (toasted) flavors leading the way. There is also a moderate hop presence in the middle and finish and a bit of lingering alcohol burn with the swallow. Delicious and well made ale.

Brouwerij (918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy red copper with pillowy khaki head, decent retention and some stringy lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, mildly nutty, sweet, alcohol. Flavor is nutty, sweet malt up front with a nutty, slight alcohol finish. Enjoyed this a lot more last time. Moderate carbonation, light body, and mildly crisp texture. A decent, simple beer.

Ericular (595) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Pours brown with a mild malt aroma. Taste is a bit nutty and earthy, but overall there just isnt much going on here. Not flavorful enough to be a solid winter warmer for me.

Gription79 (2246) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Sampled at the brewery. Big grainy, bready, malty nose. The flavor is berries, tannic, grainy, slightly fruity.
