This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Poured a copper ,med caronated,Some head that dissappears immediatly.Smells mildly malty grainy.The taste has some tartness like lemon,fairly crisp easy to drink any somewhat watery.Is decent,but probably wouldnt seek it out again.But i wouldnt turn one down and accept the differences between seasons shelf/storage conditions....

On tap @ Olde Main. Orangish amber appearance with a light tan head. Nutty caramel amber malty aroma. Sweet, slightly sugar caramel malty flavor. Solid though somewhat unexciting beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy orange with a big initial head that sort of fades into nothingness... well not really nothingness but a loose foam sort of hanging out where beer meets glass. The aroma is raw grain, raisins, tart cherries and pennies. Flavor is fruity with some vegetal garbage, but there is a nice clean maltiness lingering behind that that is really not too bad. The maltiness is really nice, not a cloying or caramel like malt character is to be found. It’s got that dry crackery on fruity character that makes me think, Vienna? There is a bit of copper in there, but this is not nearly as metallic as I remember it being. Now I must say that this is the first time to my memory that I’ve had this beer and not tasted/smelled diacetyl. Looks like some of the QC issues with these cats are being ironed out. I sure hope so.

Received this in trade from tedpeer, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a slightly cloudy orange-amber with a smallish bubbly off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty, a bit fruity, but kind of bland. Would have done well with some hop presence. Taste is malty, I get some caramel, some toffee, very dry finish. Mouthfeel is kind of watery maybe a bit oily. Body is a bit thin. Carbonation is crisp. Not a bad beer, just somewhat unremarkable. I could see a bud drinker transitioning to this quite easily.
