Bottle: Spicey, tabacco taste, traces of a stout. Altbier? I have my serious doubts.

Pours from a bottle a dark amber. Aroma is some floral hops, a little dark wheat. Flavor is a nice sweet maltiness, with some whole wheat toast flavor and a pleasant bitterness. A good beer.

Voodoo (357) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2014
From a variety pack.....pours a copper color, surprise, with a medium white head which lingers a bit.....aroma is a bit fruity, earthy......taste is earthy, astringent bitterness, light mouthfeel, disappears quickly off the palette with a bit of a metallic end.

60minuteman (864) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle from variety pack. Aroma of toasted caramel malt, corn, barley, molasses. Flavor is slightly metallic and heavy on the earthy malt and hop. Strange bitterness to it. It’s a bit unpleasant but decent flavor notes.

pottygok (487) - Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Aroma: Bready malt aromas with hints of yeast and cooked vegetables. A bit off putting. Appearance: Clear copper color with no head. Taste: Light sweetness with a light sourness in the finish. Palate: Light body, slick oily texture, soft carbonation, long dry finish. Overall: Meh...pretty disappointing. There’s a lot out there that’s better, and I couldn’t see any purpose in seeking this one out.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts, hay and spice. Taste is malts and spice.

Pours Amber with a thin white head. Not a lot in the way of aroma. Mild flavor, malt with no hoppiness

mtdewa1 (351) - rome, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is malty. Taste is malt. Earthy, metallic and a bit of hops at the end. Easy smooth drinking beer. Not much going on. OK beer.

AdamJackson (2882) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Amber bronze copper appearance. No nose. Taste is like an earth covered penny. Mild bitterness a touch of salami peppery spice. Finish is smooth.

Bottle - A brown amber color to it, almost no head. Dryness to it, no sweetness or hop flavor. Middle of the road and nothing special with this one.

Dacrza (543) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: May 24, 2014... GLASSWARE: Howard’s Pub pint... OCCASION: a holdover from the last poker night... APPEARANCE: dark amber body that is lively and slightly opaque; off-white head is mostly creamy with a bit of rocky space; good open lacing... AROMA: sharp caramel malts with enough metallic clank to disturb the doughy biscuit that settles... PALATE: smooth yet slightly warm; mellow, swift and too light to hold attention... TASTE: nutty and caramel with the sweetness near to lip-smacking; hops are in check and not distinguishable... OVERALLL: serviceable and sessionable, but not a six-pack I’d seek to revisit; rather straightforward and predictable, with only the comfort factor working in its favor....
