Bottled. An amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of bread and medium notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and bread, leading to a dry and bitter finish where notes of straw lingers. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for this one. Pours copper with a decent off-white head. Aroma is quite malty. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is rather roasted malt with something herby/hoppy. Finishes on the sweet side. Maybe nutty. Good beer.

brokensail (11309) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 23, 2010
A: The pour is a dark orange/amber color with a mild and short-lived off-white head on top. S: A mild note of adjuncts (corn) in the nose. Sweet malt, a touch of caramel and chocolate. T: A nice sweet caramel flavor along with subtle notes of chocolate, toffee, and coffee. A mild citrus and hop character to the beer in the middle. M: Light to medium in body with a creamy carbonation. D: Not a bad little bock. Easy drinking and refreshing, though not all that balanced.
