clear amber pour with a mostly white head. aroma is full of caramel malt, light toast, and maybe a tiny hint of fruitiness. Flavor is malty and a bit nutty. Ok.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 24, 2009
12 oz bottle - Pours a crystal clear medium amber color with small light tan head. Aroma has faint biscuity notes, light caramel, faint roasty notes. Flavor is faintly nutty, notes of toasted malts and light caramel. Finish is fairly balanced. Overall this is alright - certaintly nothing to seek out, but not a bad session ale if you don’t have a lot of options.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours copper/mahogany with a thin white head. Smells of sweet malt, earthy, some spice. Tastes of caramel, earthy and semi sweet with some peppery splashes.

bbrock81 (305) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle purchased in Hill City, SD, of all places. Pours a dark amber-brown with not much head. Aroma started out slightly lightstruck, but as that faded a very nice toastiness came through, with not much else going on. The flavor was pretty bland, not as malty as the aroma and again, not much else going on. Palate was average, maybe a bit fizzy. Not a terribly good beer.

Well, its about that time so...I like the theme of the label, I’m sure the rest of Utah agrees. The color was a beautiful amber with a head that ran away like the world’s greatest coward. The smell is a nice cereal, malty smell; I like it. The taste drops off quick. Decent malty flavor but somehow fades with a bad ending. I’d like to subtract more points but I really like the smell, fuck. GO UTAH! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-06-2007 03:57:06

Poured a hazy amber color with a thin off-white head. Dull malt with a mild citrus hop note make up the aroma and flavor. Light bodied.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Pours amber as expected. Sweet smell on this brew which ends up having a peat, chocolate, malt flavor to it. Goes down smooth.

beerbill (3509) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 4, 2009
Bottle shared by goldtwins. Pours a mostly clear golden brown. Pleasant aroma of molasses and malt. The flavor is very weak malt and frankly not much else. Mild bitterness at the finish. Nothing exciting, but no problems either.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a 2 finger beige head that leaves great lacing. The nose is caramel malt and earthy hops. The taste is similar with some biscuits mixed in. Medium bodied. Boring, but drinkable.

BelgianBeerGal (3235) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Draught in Brian Head. Medium orange-brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma was mostly malt but just a little hop in the end. Pretty much the same flavour, very malty and maybe a little hop bitterness in the finish. Average.
