Pours a deep copper color. Small head. Aroma is of malt right away. Hops are not up front. Taste is very smooth and easy to drink. A very simple session beer, no bells or whistles here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one inch tight bubbled fizzy off-white head that left some minimal lacing. The nose is fairly light with a little fruitiness and lightly grainy malt. It almost has a weird grape soda like note that is a bit off-putting. The flavor is malty with some toasted and slightly husky grains. Finishes with some light yeast and that weird grape flavor that seems out of place. Light bodied and very easy drinking with moderate fizzy carbonation. Can’t get into this one all that much, but it is pretty easy drinking.

My first of this style. A nice medium brown hue with an off white head that had good retention. Aroma had a nice malty caramel note, a subtle nuttiness to it. Flavor was similar to the aroma but it did have a nice light hop presence in the finish. Very easy to drink and smooth in the finish. A great session indeed.

Nice color, very ale-ish. Aroma is what you’d expect it to be, with a little bit of malt, but not so much that it is sweet. Well balanced flavor with a little dryness that is also light on hops. Finishes cleanly and is surprisingly refreshing with a little bit citrus like zing on the end.

I was shocked by this beer. This would be something I could buy a case of and drink for a weekend. Pours light brown with a decent tan head... not much in the aroma department, just some hints of malt and mild yeast esters. Flavor has no bitterness, light to medium body, biscuit, toast and caramel are the main flavors. Goes down really easy. Squeaky clean palate. Wish i could get more of this

Pours dark amber with a small head. Noted a caramel aroma. Smooth, but slightly oily mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one...

Poured a dark amber with a little head and no lacing. Aroma is faintly of hops and maybe citrus. Taste is mild and finishes with a bit of smokiness. Palate is light. Not one of my favorites.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Philly airport. Pour is copper color with small white head. Aroma is light hops, faint chemical, and light malt. Flavor is faintly malty, light chemical again with a very crisp and faintly hoppy finish. Well, it certainly is a session beer as the label indicates. Not a hard beer to drink.
