Bottle from coworker. Clear brown ruby color. Generous head that stayed. Aroma of caramel and surgery Malts. Brown sugar and sugarcane notes. Average carbonation. Medium light sweetness. Light bitter. A tad watery. A decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark golden color. White head no lace. This had some off flavors. Burnt rubber and metallic taste. Not pleasant.

Shippy (43) - - JAN 18, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Clear, maple syrup amber color with no head. Smell is sweet and rum-like, with notes of honey and candied apple. Taste is sweet, a little too sweet for me. A little nuttiness, some similar tastes to apple cider, and just a bit of bitterness. Feel is sort of oily with little carbonation. Overall it’s decent, but Prost has some much better offerings.

Travlr (18647) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thanks! Clear deep reddish amber color, thin off white head. Aroma of lightly burnt toast. Taste is fruity candied caramel. Lots of sugar here.

Jrwhitney6 (412) - - JAN 3, 2016
Beer of month club offering. Pour was unexpected - darker than anticipated - a slightly hazy light brown (or dark copper). Nose of malt with some sweetness (cherries?) underneath. Taste also has some sweetness - I am getting subtle taste of cherries over some malt. It reminds me of a less strong/artificial tasting Sam Adams Cherry Wheat - which is surprising. It's ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

euniceradio (340) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2016
12 oz bittle bottle to tulip. Pours clear copper, small ring head. Aroma of sweet grain, earth, and corn. Taste is same with decent body, some honey and a decently bitter dry finish. Just not my flavor profile.

RedSox2004 (1552) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Light amber/copper with a small, quickly receding off-white head and minimal lace. Aromas of toast and caramel malt accompanied by some earthy hop notes. Modest malt sweetness highlights the taste, with a hint of nuttiness. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel and a malty finish.

nuplastikk (5369) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2016 12oz bottle. Mellow, medium body. Soft, smooth caramel, nutty tones. Sublime, quite enjoyable.
