Draft at CAH downtown. Not as clean as I remembered. Clear yellow gold pour with small off-white head. Weak sweet grainy aroma. Tasted buttery and old. Only okay. I give a higher overall score because of my previous encounters with this beer

Tap. Copper, white head w. nice lacing. Nose is dusty copper malt, a little caramel. Flavor is caramel, a tiny hint of cocoa & solid bitterness. Nice cereal malts in the finish. Reminds me a bit of something Flying Bison would make.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A very attractive beer that is strongly carbonated providing a nice head that lasts a long time. Don’t drink this one out of the bottle it tastes pretty bad and with a very strong metallic finish. Its got a bite that hits like a mild pale ale and finishes with a metallic aftertaste. A decent beer, but one I won’t be buying again any time soon.

I liked this beer. Pours a light golden colour with a small off white head. it was a little complex in the mouth, yet very smooth, and nice biscuit malt flavors. Aroma is pleasent, of honey roasted peanuts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear sparkling copper with a nice lasting white head and good lace. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel and crackery malts, lightly toasted bwheat bread, and some earthy and slightly peppery hops. Flavor is clean, nice toasted malts, biscuity, light caramel flavor, nice crisp bitterness, a bit herbal and slight grass. Crisp and nice finish- good vienna/mexican amber lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours filtered tawny brown. Nose of apple juice malt, faint bread crust, some toast and light spices. Flavor is much the same, overall very plain and simple but at the very least it lacks any glaring defects, so it’s drinkable without being memorable. Clean, malty, a little red apple and toast in the finish, but quite simple. Simple can be good, simple can be downright delicious, but in this case simple is just simple.
