Bottle from atom as a trade extra which I appreciate since I have new found vigor for trying new breweries. Light copper pour with grainy nose. Tastes grainy, earth bitters, light pepper, and tea. Stale palate. Reminds me of the Polotmavy Iíve been seeking.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thanks George999! Aroma is basically all caramel malt with biscuit malt and very little hops. Pours clear amber colored with a thin white head and some lacing. Starts with a lot of sweet caramel malt flavor with a bit of biscuity malt. Finishes smooth with the caramel persisting on the palate for quite a while after the sip with a slight hop content. Decent.

bottle. Poured clear amber with a filmy white head. Aroma of sweet bread with a slight herbal hop note. Medium body, average carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel that finishes just a little sticky with mild bitterness. Mainly malt flavour, sweet caramel and light toasted notes, alcohol is well hidden.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle pours a clear Amber/orange with a small white head. Yeasty caramel malt aroma, with citrus and cider. Taste of stale oat bread and malt, too sweet caramel, and a stranger bitterness. Gross.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is not a good beer, letís just get that out of the way. It is sweet and wierdly fruity, sort of vaguelly hoppy and all kinds of strange tasting. It is orange and very slightly hazed w/ a quickly dissipating head of mixed bubbles. Smells of cherry or something kind of like cherry and a bit of citurs but itís not as good as that sounds. This is a little sticky and heavy across the palate w/ moderate carbonation and finishes w/ lingering sugar sweetness and some earthy bitterness. I am glad that I only got one bottle of this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 12 oz. bottle poured to a goblet, showing a clear, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam that quickly diminished to light film, and an almost non-existent ring, with some spotty lacing. The nose was light grain, with light caramel & stone fruit sweetness. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste combined sweetness & tartness with a moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness that together lingered into the finish in a manner not sure of direction, and not totally agreeable on the palate.
