On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours amber into the glass, with a small froth cap. Caramel malt aroma with some toast in there. The flavors are malty, with caramel, some biscuity notes, and nods to tannic acid and possibly a touch of copper. I’ve made this sound much bigger than it actually is, as the rest of the brew is lackluster. The finish is of toast and dry-hopping, with a medium body and dull mouthfeel. It’s not a substantive brew on the palate, and after a couple of pulls, loses interest for me. It falls into the vast ocean of mediocrity, which is unfortunate.

Clear amber pour with off white head. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, floral hops, kind of warm like a whiskey. Similar taste with a nice bitter hop finish.

Butters (3983) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle shared with the guys at the Inglorious Emergency Tasting. Very nice bright caramel pour with ring of tan head. Nose of sweet and tart caramel with a slight hint of vegetal on the flavor, but perhaps just nutty. Some hint of floral hop for balance. Good malty amber.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is floral and very sweet. Flavor of grains and some fruit, with a hoppy finish. Was expecting much worse.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Very nice pour, great sticky head and beautiful ruddy amber color. Dry malt extract and a touch of artificfial sweetner on the nose with grainy bitterness to balance.. Sweet malt palate gives way to a very nice hoppy bitterness. Somewhat floral hop spice lingers in the mouth. 84

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle from Whole Foods in Greenville, SC. Pretty good all-around amber. Nothing extreme, but not bad. It won’t impress you with a big amount hops. Just an average amber.
