12oz bottle from MrFacto, thanks again Matt. Rating #54. Amber/brown with a little orange and a light brown head. Toasty and a light caramel maltiness, no hops that I could perceive. Light flavor, mild toast and a faint bitterness, silky smooth though and a pretty nice drinker. (1314)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of Kan. Pours a hazy murky amber, lighter glowing edges, a moderate tannish head that cakes and laces fairly well. Aromas are caramel and toffee, bread, a touch of yeasty spice. Initial is lighter side of medium bodied, yeasty bready, a touch of spice, decent toffee and caramel. A bit toasty, a bubbly carbonation and a touch of sweetness mixes with toast and a decent bitterness on the backend from floral and spicy hops. A tasty lager with some character. Finish is a bit spicy, sweet toffee, bread, and light hopping. I’d love to do this again fresh. A pleasant rate and a sessionable brew

12 oz. Clear, reddish-copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is toasted pecan and dusty grain, with wafts of molasses and tart apple. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, sweetish, and soft. Flavor is toasted nut and grain with lightly sour molasses. Some roasted grain astringency in the finish provides most of the drying.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 A surprise gift from Matt (Mr. FActo) Thanks! Bottle. Biscuit and lightly toasted grain malt fields greet your nose on tho pretty clear amber brew. The flavor is quite a grainy malt with a bit of grassyness. A bit earthy (or is that bready) and a touch sweet. Med body and a bit of a heavier mouth feel than expected. Drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma contains some biscuit deal and citrus. The flavor is rather sweet and malty with some citrus present. Not bad for a kind of dull style.
