3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a rich, deep amber/orange color with a white head that fell a little retention but had good lacing. The nose has a nice malty sweetness and ends with a hint of citrus hops. Nice nose for an amber, completely unexpected. Flavor is nice and caramely and full. There is just the right amount of bitterness at the end to make it very balanced. The mouthfeel was excellent. It was full and had great body. This is totally a beer drinkers session beer.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On Tap: Pour was light amber with a white head. Aroma was butter......movie theatre butter. Flavor hid this character a little but it still came out. There must have been something wrong because why would anyone want such a blatant butter aroma in their beer?

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy, light amber color. The nose is quite hoppy; with hints of light fruit, toasted malt and caramel as well. Comes across the palate with a light fruit and caramel start. It finishes with a mild root beer taste with hops. Overall a very interesting brew; but also very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I picked up a six pack when I was in Wisconsin Dells from the brew master, Thanks for the sample. Pours a hazy amber/orange color, with a little less than an inch of white foam with good lacing & mild malt in the aroma. This is a smooth and drinkable beer - pretty good but nothing flashy. I taste a little bid of yeasty malt and a subtle herbal hop presence in the finish. After a few sips, I really begin to appreciate the smoothness of this beer if I could get this in Michigan this could be my go to anytime beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
ruby red pour, nose and flavor match up: fruity, biscuity malt all day long. almost marzen like, hard to believe this is dry hopped, malt is in your face here but not altogether unenjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with a small white head. Pine hops and bready malt in the aroma. Dry and malty flavour with a bitter hoppy finish. Nothing bad, and nothing special about it.

Bottle courtesy of tytoanderso. Pours amber with a white head. Smells vegetal. Tastes sweet and caramelly with a weird saccharine like aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy with a lot of unfiltered yeast floating about. Bitter finish with hints of spice and caramel. Nothing special--I’ve made beer that tasted as good as or better than this in my homebrewing days.
