Poured into tulip glass a hazy deep amber with white head that receded onto side of glass. Lighter co2 with a slick body. Aroma was soft but toasted malts and some nuttiness. Taste was malts, grains, nuts, I liked the balance here. Some seemed to go after this one but in the 12 pack I’d pick this before others. A fan of this style I think this was a good representation of it and it was enjoyed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange-amber with a white head. Nose is some biscuit, some caramel, some fruity esters, and some earthy fruit (plum? cherry?). Flavor starts biscuity than moves to bitter than to mildly fruity then back to bitter and biscuity in the finish. Light to medium in body and a very nice bitter overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange copper color with a white head. Aroma is toasty malt. Taste is slight citrus with a slight herbal maybe mint note. Toasty and sweet malt. Nothing over the top, not underwhelming. Solid, not too thin.

Nose of cinnamon, a bit of caramel, oranges. Glowing orange-red color. Malty, bready flavor, spice, some citrus. Very well balanced, good malt showcase.

Really, I thought it was a step up from draft offerings
At sports events, with the bitterness, albeit the slight
Bitterness. #6 of 12 in the pack order.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Global Brew EDW. This was just plain good. It had pleasant fruit, yeast, mild bitterness, and a heavy malt bill. Really well done and it is a style that tends to have little difference from one to another.

Very enjoyable for what it’s not, over the top. And for beer camp, restrained in the hopping to allow the style to shine. light copper, extremely well balanced with nice interplay of malt and mild hops, caramel, slighht spice, light carbonation. good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium amber pour with lofty head. Aroma has pleasing pine, caramel malt, and smokiness, but also hints of some strange medicinal notes as well. Kind of like cherry cough syrup. On the tongue there is slight bitterness. Taste brings dose of caramel malts with some roastiness. Again something weirdly medicinal. Not bad, but not my cup of tea.

This golden brown beer has caramel aroma and smokey flavor. It is very smooth and easy drinking yet has a lot a interesting levels of flavor which take time to develop fully on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark copper body with a quarter inch of head. Bready aroma, with alcohol, line, sweet, fruity malts. Earth flavor with underlying herbal notes. Light line and perhaps a touch of citrus. Not on par with the quaffable British bitters. Another mediocre, boring Beer Camp offering.
