Some wheat. Just a little sweet. I was surprised to taste the wheat in this beer. German yeast I think. Light malt body. Very light hop presence, I thought I was drinking an oktoberfest.

Ick. Nice clean, mahogany brew. Even a hard pour could not coax any sustainable cap. Great colour though. Aroma: meh. Mild malt, slight alcohol, phenols. Man, this is a weak smelling beer. More alcohol now, tasty malts, deep toasted and caramel malts. Ack. Alcohol again! Dammit already! Tons of toasty malts in the taste, bread, dry, hard nasty bitterness (not strong though), pepper. faint oak taste as well. Medium to medium full bodied, mild carbonation, stays thick all the way through, long dark aftertaste and mid length hard bitterness remains. Crap beer.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a dark yellow. Smell is muted but sweet, can’t describe it much beyond that. Taste is extremely sweet with absolutely no hops. One dimensional and not that enjoyable overall.

12 oz bottle. Pours light amber with minimal head. Aroma is caramel with some raisin and a bit astringent. Flavor much the same, too metallic for my tastes, but could be worse.

Random beer randomly selected at El Bait shop this evening. Pours a reddish amber color with some head, but it went away really quickly/ Aroma was a little malty sweet with some soapy notes, not really much hops, per say. Flavor was moderetley hoppy, in that the hops were present but they were fairly mild. There was some sweet caramel. hmmm, eh.

Brown body with some red notes a large white crown floates on top with phenomenal retention. Sour malty, soapy, with some hop aroma. Aroma is sour and unpleasant. Sour bile flavour built on mild nutty malts. Brew has a bitter finish with a long lasting coffee after taste. Piney hops are detectable. Why does this taste like soap? Ugggg…. I can drink this but it’s not all that great in fact I don’t really like it."

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a medium off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt with licorice and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a dry malt flavor with caramel and a nice sweet finish. Easy to drink, hiding the alcohol well, a good amber ale from Pyramid
