Can from Whole Foods (Bowery/Houston). Nice dark brown body with razor thin head. Sweet and malty nose with chocolate notes. Nice taste of malts, toffee and chocolate. It’s also ice cold. So maybe I should have let it warm up a bit to get more flavour out of it. Very smooth. Goes down well.

In a can from BOTW, I was hoping the photo wasn’t accurate, and I’d get a bottle, but not to be. The look of this is nice. An autumn color, burnt sienna, some head. Very doughy nose with a bit of spiciness. Mouthfeel is tingly and clean. Palate is malty and spicy similar to the nose, decent session beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brown color with a fluffy head. Not sure why I don’t see this as much anymore. So balanced and drinkable it was my go-to for a while. Aroma of sweet caramel malts and mellow hops. Flavor is smooth and balanced, caramel, grain and faint hops.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice to have another craft beer option in a can, but it was just a so-so option at best. First, the beer poured out with a HUGE eruptive head that was 100% foam in my glass as I poured it. It literally took up the entire contects of my glass with foam, and had to wait at least 5-10 minutes until it melted. Overpressured or infected? Thankfully, perhaps just overpressured. The body was a clear mahogany brown color. Aroma is light caramel malts. Flavor is light caramel, a bit of brown sugar and some metallic notes.

Light amber pour with a creamy white head and lace. Brown sugar and pie spice. Rich sweet malt with a rather flat flavor. Thin but nice carbonation.

12 oz. can given to me by a gentleman from Pa. while on vacation in Maine. Poured into a shaker pint glass. Pours a clear light brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malts, Palate is on the thin side and smooth. Flavor is pretty one dimensional, caramel malt. Very enjoyable.
