Bottle. Brown pour with tan head. Sweet sugars, light malty aromas, off tones. Bland flavors, light sweetness, lacking but not as bad as the aromas.

Finhead (1213) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Hazy copper-brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is a little fruity with some light caramel and herbs. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet to begin then becomes somewhat tart.

Strykzone (5062) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a variety pack bought at Randalls in North County. This is coppery and clear. A nice beige head. A malt first aroma that also has herbal notes. Some toastiness. First sip brings out fairly big malts and alcoholic flavor. I taste some sourness that was also tasted in the other two beers of this series. A little fruit pops up mid glass. This tries to be good with the malt attempting to take the beer and run but that sourness keeps popping up and detracting. It didnít measure up.

jandd1983 (2740) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2013
It poured a somewhat hazy, burnt orange color with a cream colored head. The aroma was somewhat resiny, grapefruity with toasted maltiness. The taste was caramel maltiness, somewhat citrusy and a lightly spicy flavor.

phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2013
12 oz. bottle from jandd1983- thanks again, Doran! Pours a semi-cloudy amber with a finger of off-white head that settles into a film and leaves small spots of lace. Aroma of sweet, toasted, and caramel malts, leaves, dust, earth, and figs. Flavor of toffee, brown sugar toasted nuts, dates, leaves, and peanut brittle. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Long, lingering sweet malts on the finish. Eventually dries up the palate. Sloppy beer. Not sure what itís trying to be.

musinj6 (414) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours a clear amber brown with one finger head that very quickly dissipates leaving light to moderate lacing. Heavy caramel aroma with hint of metallic German and herbal hop flavor. Moderately sweet with a touch of bitterness at the end. Medium body with brisk effervescent carbonation. Not bad.

thegreenrooster (3295) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Pour is a cloudy brown with a small white head. Aroma is sugar, molasses sweet. Flavor is caramel apple with some brown sugar. Finish is sweet and syurpy. I donít know what style the brewer was going for here. Kinda strong ale but kinda esb. Itís ok and the best out of the mix pack from this new brewer.
