slowrunner77 (6077) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Toasts malt seems to be the main player here, in both aroma and flavor. Slight sweetness and buttering hops in the aftertaste. Just ok.............."

Braudog (5890) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Only a light malt aroma. Light amber fortells the watery swill with barest roasted barley. Blech.

riversideAK (5624) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2008
My favorite of their brews. Amber colored brew. Aromas of caramel malts, bread, toast. Mildly sweet up front with toasty sweet bread and a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. Flavorful, yet light. This one was well made.

Tap at the brewpub. Amber with a nice lasting creamy head. Mild aroma is toasted nut and caramel. Taste is the same with a crisp, toasty finish. Near-medium body is well balanced, has medium carbonation and is an easy drinker.
