12 oz. botle. Pours a hazy dark golden/light amber color with a small off white head. There is some sediment that comes with the pour. The aroma is light caramel, toasted bread, and a hint of bitterness. The flavor has caramel malt, honey sweetness, a light amount of fruit, and some bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied at best, slightly watery and thin. Not bad, maybe better than I expected.

Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain), trace hops (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dull.

This pours with a light orange color, more than "golden", nicely active and with just the barest remnants of a white head. There’s a light bready aroma. I like the texture ... pleasantly carbonated. Wow, this is yeastier than I’d expected almost like underbaked bread. Lightly caramelled, almost citric. Nice flavors. Nice beer. (#2666, 1/27/07)

POured a light straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma was grassy some caramel and thats about it. Flavor was much the same, really bland, some hints of hop bitterness detected as well.

thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2003
This brew poured a small head of bubbles that left behind a fiar lacing and transparent brown colored uncarbonated body. Its mouthfeel was hoppy and acidic and it had a very mild undiscernable aroma. The flavor was mild malted slightly hoppy and dialectyl.

Subtle honey and grain on the nose. Amber color, medium white head. Moderately strong tinny taste of mulberry and yeast. Grass finish. There’s a slightly soapy presence throughout.

EithCubes (5618) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Bottle. Rich caramel and toffee nose with light fruitiness. Mostly malt with a little chalky/cellary component, slightly toasty. Golden-bodied with a slight orange tint and creamy beige head. Taste restrains the toast a bit and allows the fruitiness to come to the fore. No bitterness, mild-medium sweetness. Thin body, even watery. Again, mostly malty, with caramel leading the way, and a hint of butter, light herbs and veggie and even a splash of honey. Good one.
