Pours a nice amber color. Not a lot of aroma, sweet malt with a hint of fruit/hops. Flavor is malty, with a touch of bitterness.

Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of sweet maltiness with a hint of citrus hops. Taste is all the malt, a bit of crisp yeast. Clean and easy, just not too exciting.

Red/amber pour. I can smell a bit of carmel and some nuttiness. Taste is sweet and smooth. A bit better than the rating would leave you to believe.

Bottled (backlog, Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm). Reddish amber colour with a small slightly off-white fluffy head. Aroma is some caramel malts, mild earthy notes, a bit "hard water" as well as some slight floral and grassy notes. Flavour is similar, but has a quite strong and crispy maltiness to it. Mild toastednotes in it as well.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle, picked up from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. No date, just a barely-legible code on the bottle. Shared with b3shine (he left me with 3/4). Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head, just a dot or two of lace sticks. Big caramel malt, toasty, mild mustiness. Some over ripe fruit. Doesn’t taste fresh to me, and if it is fresh, then this is a very boring bad unbalanced one-note red ale. Moderate-plus sweet taste, light bitter. Mild bite in the finish. Light dry finish. Medium body. Kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Nope.. It’s not horrible, but I’m not at all in love with this. Just a caramel malt bomb. After 4oz I have no interest in finishing this... But I’ll try, because I hate wasting beer. Reading others’ reviews as I try to finish the last bit here now. Definitely seeing the vegetal. Little herbal hop.

Draft to taster (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a fairly transparent slightly reddish orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells solid too; a nice balance of caramel, toast, roast, and a bit of hops. Tastes like it smells, but not as balanced, with a fairly sticky medium-bodied mouthfeel. More toast than roast. On the tongue. Not bad.
