bhensonb (14161) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Can’t smell much other than light malt. Beautiful golden apricot color with little head. Tastes of malt, finishing towards hops. Fair amount of carbonation. Maybe a very slight hint of grapefruit. It’s not sweet, but the malt is always lurking. Hops came out a bit after about a quarter of the bottle. Another session ale? Too malty for summer guzzling. Maybe around Thanksgiving.

jgb9348 (5717) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Deep amber coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, nuts and a tiny bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Strong nuttiness in the taste with some malt and pit fruit flavours strong in the front. Aftertaste shows some blandness with some light yeast and nuts and just about nothing else. Overall, a decent amber, but definitely nothing special. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from BevMo in Caramel Valley (San Diego), California.

On tap at a local restaurant. Golden amber color with a fizzy white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste with some bready notes. A fairly basic and one dimensional beer.
