Solid if a little uninspired for mine. Soft gooey caramel on the nose. Some floral hops too. Dark amber in colour. Decent, drinkable body - well balanced too. Toffee caramel with a soft bitter finish. A bit non descript but built for consumption than finesse.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber color. Another hop bomb nose, this time peaches, strawberries and a touch of citrus. Citrusy mouth with strawberries and cherries sitting in the background. Very light body, but more bitter than the golden ale, which is good. Peaches and strawberries just linger in the finish. Yum.

thanks TimE! / canned; stamped 07.08.30 / the nose is orange, hoppy, a bit spicy, then afterwhile it becomes maltier; copper body, dark orange highlight with lingering, off-white head that is a bit rocky; sweet, smooth, and delicious--a little caramel, resiny and hoppy; a great can of beer--very nice!
