Having a bad streak today - third beer and all of them have been mediocre. This one has a yeasty aroma, and it does have a nice burnt orange color with an off white head and lots of soapy lacing. Flavor is more malty than I expected, with a little bitterness in the finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle shared by largadeer. Pours clear golden with a small white head that fades. Smells like caramel and pale malt with slight resinous hops. Tastes a bit faded with caramel and pale malts, apple, and faint floral, earthy, and resinous hops. Boring mouthfeel. Damn it, I hate that this is from the ’burg and sucks. Oh well.

Copper, white fizzy head. Light toasty citric flavors with a faint swirl of toast. Caramel biscuit flavor rounds with a hint of citrus in the finish. Light bodied, soft carbonation, slightly offensive finish. This needs some serious help...
