12 oz. can courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a hazy dirty gold with a thin-moderate off-white head that evaporates before the second sip and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of toffee and caramel. The flavor is where this beer falls apart a bit. Toffee and butterscotch along with a bit of overripe fruit. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Not a fan.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
Hazy orange/amber pour, not much of a head. Aroma is full on caramel malt, honey and some overripe fruit notes. Flavor has honeycomb, orange, caramel. Not so great.

rougeau13 (1940) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2012
Slightly hazy reddish amber with a medium, milky, off white head. Aroma of caramel and bread, pear, and a touch of funky Belgian yeast. Taste is really malty with a little fruit sweetness. The flavor is really lacking in complexity. Medium bodied with flattish carbonation. Had this on tap and from the can, and it’s really not very good either way.

djd07 (3225) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2012
On tap at Richmond Arms. Pours a cloudy coppet with large white head leaving sticky along the glass. The aroma is yeast and pepper. Medium mouthfeel with a raisin malt and metallic finish. Easy to drink a decent biere de garde from Southern Star.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle sample at a spring beers tasting at Norma Jean. Hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, spicy herbal notes and malt. Sweetish flavor with some malt, a bit of caramel, fruits, some yeasty notes and a drier finish with some spicy notes. Medium-bodied.

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 23, 2012
Can sample at a spring tasting courtesy of beerandbeyond. Pours dark amber, a little hazy with a white head. Smells of baked apples and buns and tastes grainy bitter and plastic-ish. There’s a hint of sweetness in the finish, lively carbonation and light body.

newcigarz (43) - Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Pours a rusty color with a thin cream colored head. Smells of bread and damp basement. Taste is thin and light with some caramel notes Glad I got to try it. Not terrible, but not great either.

Beerenberger (1364) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2012
It has a hazy medium amber color with a rapidly disapearing off white head. The nose is grainy and the over all taste follows suit - grains, toast with hints of caramel malt. It has a medium to light body with a smooth lightly carbonated mouthfeel. No bitterness and a long lasting pleasant grainy aftertaste. Completely satisfying. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours a hazy rusty orange with a small white head that fades to a small ring. Aroma of baked apples, grass, toffee, orange, and toast. Flavor also has that baked apple taste, but slightly less so with more earth, toast, toffee, leaves, and grass. Finishes with a bit of peppery spice, grass, and toasted pizza crust. Slight fruit aftertaste, which lingers in a funny way and makes me want to have some water. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, body feels like it could have been slightly more carbonated. It’s a good beer, definitely interesting, but certainly not perfect.

Can poured at Brewvival 2012. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, stone fruits, coconut, berries and caramel. The taste is toasted malts, citrus, stone fruits and caramel. Medium bodied.
