4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. The gargantuan head of foam is clearly the predominant characteristic of this pour, burying a burnt-orange beer. A bountiful aroma escapes thru the foam, rich with malt and notes of pine. The flavors are worthy of a roaring campfire, overflowing with bark, pinecone, resin, and light bitterness. (#4123/5/27/2011)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is my first beer from Kansas.
The beer pours a hazy red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some toffee and a little bit of chocolate. The flavor is just as good. In addition to a lot of toffee, I get some grassy hops and a dry powdered chocolate flavor. The beer has low bitterness and is very well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the better ESBs that I have tried.
