stevendoel (30) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Nothing special here. Can't really even taste the hops. Nice amber color, nose is half way decent -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12 oz bottle from Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). Last of the mix six. Lets see how it goes. Pours a nice dulled amber orange hue, faint haze, but near transparent. Lively carbonation, frothy tannish head atop dies to a decent layer, sticks around small and laces ok. A bit darker in the middle, some decent glow on the edges. Aromas are carmelized malts, a bit biscuity and bready. Some gentle spice, earthiness and more carmelized malts. Gentle earthy hops, some mellow florals and grass. A touch spicy. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch of body shows carmelized malts and a faint bit of toffee. Bready, grainy with some decent earthy hop presence, florals and grass. Some gentle body, carbonation and carmelized biscuity malts hit the middle. A touch sweeter as you catch stride, some earth, toast and caramel. Backend is a touch dry and earthy but still a bit sweet overall. A touch less malt influence would be nice. A touch of soap, spice and carmelized malts as we play out, a bit softened overall and sweet as I said. Its ok, but not really my digs. Still, its pretty approachable. Looks great too with that good head, lively carbonation, nice lacing and stick around.

Pours a clear, light, golden amber. Some sweet malts and then thin. Typical macro.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
asheft (2499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Sweet base malt aroma with some soda crackers, walnuts, and red fruit. Clear orange amber under a wispy, white top. Nutty and sweet flavour that its week enough to allow some ethanol to penetrate. Medium high carbonation, low bitterness, slight cardboardy oxidation note.

Hiero (127) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Ordinary beer without much taste. Nice color, but watery taste. Not offensive.

infoman411 (19) - Stamford, Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Poured slightly warm by bartender into a cold glass. High foam levels with decent lacing. Over abundant smell of yeast and copper orange color. Sweet sweaty flavor reminiscent of Budweiser Black Crown in a cloying way almost as if its all diacytel based. Nothing pleasant on palate just yeast in a medicinal way. Way too sweet and simply not a well crafted product. This will be on my never again list....
