Pours a beautiful dark golden color with a really healthy 1 inch head. The flavor was sweet and grassy with a nice pilsner bite. Chewy mouthfeel with an earthy quick finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Daganís place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear deep golden color. Somewhat resinous hops aroma with some slightly grainy malt. Flavor starts with caramelly sweetness and continues to a very bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from a buddy in Texas- thanks, Brian! Pours a somewhat hazy orange-gold color with a small eggshell white head. Notes of sweet crackers, toasted sugar, marshmallow, orange and lemon citrus, hay, biscuit, and a little earthiness. Not much in the way of hops to speak of. Thatís all right, though, as Iíve had plenty in this style that are excessively grassy, boozy, and bitter. This is none of that- dry, malty, and toasty. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Fresh Fort Worth bottle. Wow that was pretty tasty and not dominated by alcohol. The hops seemed kinda green which was a twist but balanced well by malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from Mora2000, thanks Bill! Pours a clear, orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty solid. Grassy and floral with some light citruses. The malts are real nice with a good amount of bread, toasted grain, and a touch of spiced caramel. Flavor is similar. Toasted grains, bready malts, and slightly spiced florals up front. A touch of caramel, a nice grass, and some biscuit before the grass grows nicely into the finish along with a slightly spiced citrus. Dry and moderately bitter with a spiced bread, floral, grassy finish before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium, rounded, very soft body with a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Nice malts with a pleasant bready, toasted grains and biscuit that is well balanced with grassy hops and florals. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This brew is just absolutely amazing! It poured up a beautiful, rich, dark amber-colored body that formed up a huge frothy head with amazing retention and lacing effects which lasted until the beer was gone! Aromas of caramel, sweet malts, citrus fruits (orange and maybe a bit of lemon), hops, and spices. Thereís a nice hoppy hit up front followed by sweet malt for a mellowed, somewhat dry finish.
