fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Clear copper pour with a 1 finger beige head. Aroma of caramel, bready, toast, light fruity esters and spicy and planty hops. Flavor is nutty and lightly roasty up front, then some caramel, crusty bread, cereal, some fruity, floral and herbal hops and a light minerality to the finish. Light body, creamy, to slightly syrupy entry, medium carbonation and dry finish. Solid brew overall.

lightbias (446) - USA - MAR 27, 2016
Too sweet and chocolate-caramelly for my taste. A bit thin and a tad less carbonation than I’d like to have. Not horrible, just boring.

unclemike (2871) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Reddish amber and clear appearance with a white head. Mild aroma of caramel, toffee, light chocolate and toasted grains. Similar flavor, nutty malty sweetness and light earthy hop bitterness nothing special going on here
