Pours dark golden with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, nuts, and sticky wort. Taste is malty, toffee, nuts, sticky bread and herbal hops. Mouthfeel is full bodied and lightly sticky with moderate carbonation.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Dark hazy orange, thin off white head. Nose held notes of grainy caramel and hints of grassy earthed hops and apple skin. Slight sour flavors balance over light grassy flroals and peppery hops notes. Just a touch of breadiness and toasted sweet malt rounds this out. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry, bittersweet finish. Not great, not bad.. Thanks for the bottle Aaron.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Cloudy, dark golden pour. Short white head. Strong aroma of sweet malts and grain (sweetened breakfast cereal) with big notes of caramel and apricot. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Watery texture. Sweet, caramel and honey-like finish. This is really close to being a very drinkable beer, but the sweetness gets to you about half-way through the bottle.

ross (2052) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2006
Yellow color, not much of a head. Sweet, fruity, easy to enjoy. Something I would drink alot of, but not something I would buy again. A nice alternative to BMC though.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2005
This brew is courtesy of my Bro, FootBalm.Nice amber/orange color,small white head that faded slowly and left a little lace in the center.Malty sweetish aroma with a light hop presence and a hint of caramel.Kind of flat on the flavor Malty taste with a slight caramel in there and the hops come through decent enough towards the middle and end with just a slight bitterness.As the brew warms up it gets a little better but not much,with just a little more caramel and hops showing through.Not the greatest brew but definately worth trying again.I think this is a brew that might grow on you after a few.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 3, 2007
12 oz bottle from Trooper11 - thanks Adam! Pours a clear light amber with a quick diminishing white head. Sweet toasty grain nose, light toffee. Sweet malty flavor, light toffee and caramel. Mildly herbal bitter finish. A solid Vienna - not sure why this is rated so low?

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 22, 2008
Light haze on this copper brew. Sweet caramel malt, light grass, toasty malts, and some floral as well in the aroma. Full bodied and smooth. Nice toasted malt, caramel, and some earth/floral hops in the flavor. Refreshing and flavorful- this brew is well underrated.
