In the can @ the rake dungeon. Thanks to R@@@ for grabbing me this in Lander, WY. Pours a bit hazy reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Definitely some caramel and bread in the nose with some herbal / grassy notes as well. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Some toasted grain, caramel, and dough offered in the flavor as well. A hint of fruit. Alright.

Meh. Dug the stout, this was just boring across the board. Not an enticing style to me, but I’ve had a few good ones. this was boring at best, with hints of cardboard flavor.

12oz can, thanks to phaleslu. Can foamed over a bit on opening. Hazy amber orange color. Bigger pake khaki head. Leaves some bubbly forthy ropes and ridges of lace. Caramel malt in the flavor, mild toastiness, mild spiciness. Mostly caramel. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bitter. Medium body. Kind of a creamy, full body. Mild slick texture. Lighter smooth carbonation. Alright, and better than expected really.. But kind of one-note. Sweet and caramelly.

12 oz. can from The Liquor Store & Wine Loft (Albertson’s) in Jackson. Pours a clear, deep orange color with a big, frothy off-white head that leaves heavy lace and settles into an uneven foam cap. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, tea, orange, earth, and some metallic notes. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. The smell offers more than the flavor but it’s a decent Vienna.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
caramel body, small white head. sweet nose of caramel, munich and vienna malts: light toffee, medium pancake syrup and mildly dirty yeast phenols (vitamin b). at 6% it’s full bodied and syrupy with a nutrisweet flavor masked by caramel malt. low hop bitterness, flabby texture, watery finish. needs to be cleaned up some, dried out a bit and brought down to 5% or lower.

On draft at the brewpub which displayed a seemingly endless amount of flags commemorating this beer’s gold medals at GABF, so I had to try it. Pours a clear and light amber. The aroma was very light malt. The taste was full of a rich malt, light hops, and a almost dry finish. Enjoyable for sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured up on tap at the brewpub where there’s a clear copper body that supports an off white head. The mild aroma offers up malts, a sliver of roasted malts and then a biscuit sensation. The taste is malty to biscuit to faint light colored nuttiness before malt sweetness intercedes into the hop notes. To midway the hops take on the form of grassiness. It has a full almost rough feel as the hops and vibrant malts try to meld together but can’t. It ends with smooth malts and a mild biscuit malt note.
