Brandon1989 (437) - Euless, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2015
There was a nice hiss when i opened the bottle followed by a good amount of smoke. The beer pours a clear amber color with a small off white head that left some lacing around the glass. The aroma is caramel and some grassy/earthy hop notes as well. The taste is rather unique. The flavor is is a somewhat bitter sweet caramel and breadiness but on the back-end it is very grassy. The hops of very earthy. I don’t pick up much of the fruit in this beer however.

cheap (4573) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Slight haze on a yellow brown beer. Fairly mild initial impressions on the buds, much friendlier than I was expecting. Yes, some bitterness in there but overall a very smooth beer. As the session continues, it does get a little mild bitter building sensation on the back sides of th tongue but its never over the top. Yes, overall found this to be a better than average beer.
