Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and dusty hops, leading to a bitter finish. The body is light.

adnielsen (10137) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Big ass can @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a clear golden appearance with a cream colored head. Cracker, biscuity, bready, herbal, a touch fruity hoppy aroma. Pretty clean, cracker/pale malty, herbal, somewhat grassy flavor. Easy enough to drink but not too exciting.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2012
On draught at the end of the Smithwick’s tour. The beer is a clear golden color with a thin fluffy white head that evaporates steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter herbal hops character and malt in the background. The finish is short with a light hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

crossovert (9521) - Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Dollar can. Pour looks like soda in the glass... The smell is whatever, light malt an hops. Flavor is weird, almost minty and grapey, not sure how the fuck they got this flavor. Some DMS and corn husk. It blows.

Rune (9399) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2014
500ml bottle picked up at my local Prix store. Loose white head to a clear amber coloured body. Mild malt-fruity aroma. Brown malty flavours alongside moments of ginger and leafy hops. Restrained bittersweet tail. Medium to thin bodied. Soft on the swallow. Satisfying (shared with fiends, Tromsø 08.11.2014).

arminjewell (8672) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Pour on tap at O’Connells, clear golden  orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grain, bread, spice into some yeast, touch of earth, hints of orange marmalade. Taste was a mix of orange, grass, some slight bread, biscuit into some grain, slight earth, finishing slightly bitter.
