KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a light puddled film and medium collar and had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of a lightly sweet grain malt, floral hops and a doughy yeast with a note of caramel and a mild fruity ester. The taste was rather malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a pronounced grainy feel from the start, becoming lightly hoppy with a slight adjunct presence and a light fruitiness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow and had a light spicy sweetness at the very end. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a good refreshing brew with an unpretentious taste and a great drinkability...

Light aroma: Sweet, biscuit, A little herbal. Sweet, biscuit malt flavor. Subtle orange-like fruit, and spicy/herbal hops. A little excessive lingering sweetness -- but not too bad.

(22oz bottle) Hoppy like I didnít expect, and the malt plays a second but energetic fiddle. Itís a nice quaffable beer of much enjoyment. Looks great, sparkling lively and made me smile.

IndianaRed (2527) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 28, 2014
22oz bottle. Clear orange/yellow witha full white head. Clean light pale malt aromas and soft malty flavor. A little more hops than I was expecting but the balance was nice. Clean palate and a slight fruitiness. Good example of a style that I am not a fan of.

Very laid-back overall with a nice bitter/milk taste - makes an ideal summer drink.

Bottle. Needed a cream ale; this provided. A: Clear gold with a foamy white head. N: Biscuit, corn, pine, spruce, bread. T: A little sweet and a little bitter. Not terribly powerful on either end. M: Creamy, carbonated, lighter body. O: A very light, uninteresting beer. Nothing terribly wrong with it, but itís mostly a tick.
