bhensonb (12572) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Tap at the Berkeley venue. Pours very dark amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma of light roasty malt with light fruit hop. Med body. Flavor is roasty caramel, mild, arguably fruity, hop. Finishes not quite dry and barely bitter.

At pyramid taproom Oakland airport. Not much head. Weird shade of brown (not very appetizing in appearance). Yeasty bitter flavor with bitter aftertaste. But not hoppy good bitter. More like spoiled beer bitter. Abv 4.8%. IBU 21. Major disappointment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Poured a dark hazy amber. Almost yeasty aroma. Mild flavors of malt, citrus and hops. Not a good mix, funky aftertaste.

Ferris (7974) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft - Mild roasted malt nose with a touch of spice. Cloudy amber with very rich head. In the days where more is more the simplicity of this beer is nice. Malty and nutty with no hops or bitterness. A bit too light on body but a nice example of an amber.

nickd717 (3671) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Tap at Pyramid Taproom at Oakland Airport. Cloudy pale amber in color with a one finger cream-colored head. Faint aroma of caramel, nuts, and English yeast. The flavor is actually a bit yeasty, oddly enough. Sweet and malty with just a tiny bit of hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. The epitome of mediocrity, more or less.
