A: Dark Amber/Brownish Hue, Passes Mild Light, Off White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Grassy, Mildly Floral, Mildly Bready T: Bready, Mildly Floral M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Bitter, Semi Watery Overall, maybe I just missed the boat on this one but a very boring beer, nothing good worth seeking at all..with the mild nose and taste, compounded with a watery finish made a boring beer.

Amber pour with a massive head that sticks around. Smell is bready malts, caramel. Taste is again bready malts, especially as it warmed, slight rye spice, and sweet caramel.

PhillyCraft (3457) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2013
On tap at Old E, pours hazy amber brown with light beige head, not much lacing. Notes of caramel malt, spicy hops, wood, grass, and rye. Palate is a little sticky with a medium body. Bitter and dry. Alright

j12601 (6991) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with a large yellowed beige head. Malt and huge citrus, punchy earthy hops. Medium bodied, sweet and earthy, chewy malt. Thins out a bit, earthy bitterness. Nice profile, but could use a little more body, however for being about 4% it’s doing well. Gentle bitterness on the finish.

swoopjones (6227) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2013
draft at Coles, Buffalo. Deeper copper pour. rich caramel maltiness with mild resiny bitterness that lingered on palate. Not overly flavorful, easy drinking, decent amber that packs a bigger bitterness than most of the style. Just not a fan of ambers

thornecb (4546) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel and summer fruit upfront turning to pine and resin in the dry, lasting finish.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2013
On tap at Sam’s, Durham. Cloudy amber pour, somewhat still but with a modest film. Ripe and raw nose, potent dry hops with a semi-sweet herbal quality to it. Mouthfeel is medium, could be a bit livelier perhaps. Fairly flavorful for the ABV, with hints of candy among the dry, leafy notes that tend to dominate. Not bad, would be very sessionable if available in sixers.

blklab2007 (2015) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Draft at the Gingerman. Pour has a brown color with a one finger off white head. Aroma has fresh wet hops, caramel malt, and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation. Flavor has a malted body but this really showcases the hops. Citrus, mild bitterness, medium sweetness and a wet dank dry hop.
