Base malt, bready with a trashy thing going on that sort of ruins it. Very light hints of yeast and hops. Not a winner.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz bottle served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass A – Pours a mostly clear russet copper, a small fleeting white head settles into a thin cap. S – Sweet grain, tangy wheat, cooked corn, slightly toasted, T – Sweet toasted grains, light orange notes, dull grassiness, multi-grain cereal, sweet biscuit malts, the yeast is more powdery than bready. M – Stingy carbonation adds some bite on the tip of the tongue, body is full but light around the edges, very light toasted caramel character comes out with some peppery bitterness on the finish. Grassiness only seems to come out on the aftertaste, along with notions of tart fruit skin which is kind of odd. A quick drinker. Wish this was a little fresher, seems to have faded a bit. Dull components make for an unmemorable beer but some bitterness keeps it alive. An average cream ale that doesn’t stand out in it’s class. Serving type: bottle 06-20-2013

From bottle. Clear amber. Light aroma of grass. A dry beer, not sweet and barely bitter, this is easy drinking.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2013
It’s dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma is mild with light hoppy notes of light fruit, grass and malt. The flavor has a light sweetness and a light spicy bitterness growing more dry towards the finis. The notes are fruit, grass and light yeast, and towards the finish a touch of tea.

Boring, dry Amber Ale.

Pours an amber with nice rich head. Malty aroma. Much more caramel and malt in the flavor than I expected. Very nice medium bodied beer.
