This is a heavy sweet beer, with a rich malt flavor. A little sour, with some notes of prune or raisin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is dry malt with bread crust and hints of caramel late. It pours clear and oily, with a copper hue and a white, medium dense ring that leaves a light, runny lace. The taste is a medium bitter and light sweet. The beer is dry and thin with a buzzy foam carbonation. The medium body contains roasted notes with light caramel and wood notes and a resin flavor that strengthens at the finish. The aftertaste is burnt with some citrus rind and/or wax notes that linger.

Tap at the taproom July 30th. Notes are lacking in text. This wasn’t my favorite amber.

Not a bad beer but very mild on the tongue and watery. Not surprising at 5%. Carmel golden flavors with a very slight burnt tongue flavor. Enjoyable beer with a light hop. Just thin is the only bad part. Thin fading head.

Pours a nice copper color with off-white head. Caramel malts mainly on the nose, a little toffee too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a roast character.

Light amber pour. Smells like soda and raspberries... Flavor is nutty, slight hops, fruits. Fuck you Tyranena this is not an altbier. But it isn’t terrible

Not a good beer at all. Amber color. Musty aroma and musty taste. Seems more like a macro brew trying to be "premium". Won’t be trying this one again, no question. Blech.

Rated on 5-27-2010 (Bottle) This beer forms a small very fizzy beige head with a short retention, transparent amber body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, hint of mustiness and fruity. The taste is sweet, very light bitterness, caramel malt, fruity, and dry. The palate is smooth and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very easy to drink, almost too easy. It is a session beer and a beer I might drink again.
