hawthorne00 (2366) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2014
Can. Amber with a modest white head. Spicy bready aroma with some vague citrus. Thin, fizzy. Biscuit verging on cardboard, spicy and dry finish. Just OK.

Brenhophead (537) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
Pint can. Pours a light amber hue with a slight citrus zest aroma. Thin body with some spicey/citrus notes and a doughy/bready malt backing. Not really my thing.

I get this locally and I can tell you every time it is a great experience. This beer in my opinion gives you everything you could desire in a beer. It tastes slightly like bread and has a tad sweetness to it. The color is a beautiful amber and the aroma smells of summer days in a field of daisies. I cant lie I just love this beer

gendv138 (1028) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Can dated 3/6/2014. Poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Amber with two fingers of off-white head. Aromas of floral notes, light toast. Tastes of floral notes, toast, biscuit, light citrus. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Not a whole lot going on in this.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2014
Can from Sugaya. Nice malty nose, sweet, fruity, earthy, and nutty. Medium amber-orange color. Mild toasty malt initial, very minimal hopping. and a touch of cardboard (somehow). Thin-medium body. The nose is twice as interesting as the flavors. Still, not bad. But somewhat disappointing, coming from this brewery.

John25 (364) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Can. Pours a dark tea amber color. The aroma is tart cherries and sugary malty. The taste adds chocolate and sour funk. Pretty high carb, tart finish. Not very good. I expected more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bhensonb (10748) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours orange/amber with a slight white head. Aroma is malty with hints of hop. Med minus body. Flavor is malt, a little roasted, with very light nondescript hop. Maybe a little citrus. Dry hopped with air?

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Rando7 (729) - Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Can pours amber with thin white head with persistent ring. Aroma mainly grass and bread with faint hops. Taste matches with malty sweetness, bread and grass. Minimal hop finish. Watery palate. Not what you’d think of for an amber ale or spice/herb/vegetable for that matter.

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
bytemesis (3011) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Can, 03/06/14. Mine says 4.9% ABV, FWIW. Pours clear orange with a fizzy creamsickle head that dissipates soda-quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is bland, boring, caramel, biscuit. Flavor is about the same, light plus sweet, very light bitter, caramel and biscuit, perhaps a touch of floral hops. Unexciting to say the least.
