Aroma is minimal. Pours a nice ruby reddish brown with a minimal head. Taste is minimal also - sweet malt and caramel notes. Medium-light bodied and minimal carbonation. Overall, nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The smell on it is just a tad dirty to me. Pours a darker amber with some slight hints of red to it. Moderate head. Relatively unremarkable in taste; I don’t get much to it at all.

Originally reviewed: 5/9/11. Spent a day in the mountains with my family, and stopped in to MM in Blowing Rock for dinner and got this on-tap. This beer came out in a mason jar which was a nice little "mountain" touch. Was a dark ruby color with a small beige head on top. The nose was sweet with candied malts, floral tones, syrup. Smooth and creamy mouth on this one. Really a mellow gulper. Nice sweet malty backbone with plenty of nutty flavor that I really liked. Caramel and toffee notes noted. This really was a refreshing beer to sip while waiting for my food. I definitely much preferred this on-tap to the bottle form. But this makes me want to revisit it for sure. Another solid offering from OHB.

on tap at ohb 7/12/11. crystal clear amber color with an off white head. the nose is all about the corn... sulfur, light caramel, toast and some vegetals. the flavor is the same...heavy on the canned corn with an earthy damp aftertaste. strange. 5/4/5/3/13

Bottle. I’m going to steal my husband’s descriptor and say that it is black tea color plus a big white head. Smells tinny and lemony and grainy. Kind of watery with a little carbonation. Sweet up front, then kind of watery and grainy. Not my thing.

HopTsing (427) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2012
From the bottle poured a tea colored brew with a large head. Medium bodied with aromas and flavors of malt, butter, and tin can, with a barely noticable hop finish.

Cybercat (3375) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Strong, malty aroma has a yeasty overtone but is otherwise about average. It pours a clear dark coppery brown with a fairly thick, slightly yellowish light tan head. Malty flavor has yeasty and grassy notes with just a hint of apple, nothing special but still enjoyable. Texture is quite fizzy but just a bit on the thin side. Overall, a decent if not outstanding brew.

On draught at the brewery. Pours a nut amber with ring lace. The nose is of caramel and walnuts. Sweet caramel malt with a hint of cherry on the tongue. A well-balanced bitter back finishes the pull. Soft carbonation and a medium body accompany a smooth mouthfeel. Decent.
