Poured from a cold bottle. Clear golden color, light short lived white head, no lacing with soft carbonation. Yeast and musty aroma. Light fruity body, light watery butter flavor with a weak finish.

Some beers have me at hello. Like Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. I hate to drink it because it’s then not there to smell, and that’s where this brew grabbed me, by the nose. Maybe I’m not used to the style, but what 90 does with hops, this does with malt. Toasty sweet grassy grainy malt. As for the rest of the experience, nothing to fault. A bit sweet and sticky, but balanced well enough. Great for the price, like all TJ beer, probably not the pinnacle of its’ style, but plenty good.

Aroma: Heavy yeast aromas with hints of caramel. Appearance: Dark, clear amber with no head. Taste: Light sweetness with medium sourness in finish. Palate: Medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, long finish. Overall: Much too yeasty. It balances in the finish, but barely.

Hmmm...well, this isn’t terrible, but it’s also not good. Very malty and slightly sweet with only a hint of hops. Hey, at least I can say I tried it.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Tan head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sour caramel aromas. Soft with Sourdough and nuts front to back. Lasting stale caramel finish.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen. Pours a golden color with white head. Malty, hay, slight caramel, toast flavors. Alright.

the price was great and appearance is pretty good. Flavor is seriously flawed. Palate is solid. Def. flaws here, but may be true to style, and far from a drain pour.
