Poured a clear reddish brown with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet malts with a small amount of hops in the background. On first sip, a noticeably sweet and fruity profile. Relatively smooth and simple. Overall, a nice ale.

DrSilverworm (7995) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2015
5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Caramel and toasty malt. Darker bread, grain. Corn in the finish and all throughout (DMS?). Moderate sweet taste, very mild bitter. Medium body. Kind of slick. Light carbonation. Orange amber color. Virtually no head. Malty sweet grainy amber ale. Not enjoyable.

Dark amber. Very light haze but only noticeable because of the clarity of the light and Velas Helles. Nice nutty caramel maltiness. Best so far.

Good malty red. A little to sweet to drink a lot of, but overall very drinkable.

On tap. Pours an amber with white head. Aroma is mild malt sweetness. Taste is sweet, a little fruity, reminds me of killians. Mouthfeel is good, and aftertaste sticks around a bit.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of light sour citrus hops. It had a medium body with soft carbonation. The taste was medium bittersweet with a medium bittersweet finish of short duration.
