Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. American pint glass. Pours a hazy dark orange with a medium white head. Head gone in a few seconds. Very mild lacing. Aroma of bread, some floral notes, and leather. Taste is caramel, some floral, slight fruit. Dry finish with little bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

12 oz bottle from Wilbur’s. Amber and hazy with an off-white head. Mild aroma of toasted grains and light caramel. Bland flavor, unfortunate and lingering bitter graininess. Light, crisp, dry and clean, not for meh

radarsock (1146) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2013
It’s pour can be remarked as having a certain a copper orange-dusty glow to it with which sustained an off-white head. Aromas of LME, hops, and mint. Not much else. Bread yeast, but it;s quite brief. Tastes of tin, caramel, mint, and vegetal hops. Fine, by my standpoint.

Bulk_Carrier (3411) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2013
It poured a light copper slightly cloudy color with a medium head that quickly dissipated leaving about an average lace around the glass. The smell had some floral scents with hints of caramel and hops. The taste was slightly malty and sweet with brown sugar and caramel, and had a slightly bitter hoppy finish. It had a light body with a high carbonation. A good ol’ APA that was pretty drinkable. Overall, decent for the style and good for me.
