UPDATED: AUG 27, 2018 Found from bottle from Binnys in Plainfield. Illinois. I found it inviting and refreshing. It will never be a highly sought after beer and there is certainly a lot better options in pretty much every local market but it is solid and one of my cheap go to early Fall options.

Floral herbaceous, herbal cooked, and malty sweet toasty, aroma. Burnt toast and light caramel taste. Earthy finish. Deep amber / light copper color. Moderate bitterness.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2018 500 ml can poured at home. Pours reddish brown with a beige head. Not a lot of smell but what I got was caramel. Tastes like caramel malt. Pretty watery. Okay.

Orange red with a foamy white head. Aroma is mild caramel malt. Taste leans sweet with weak caramel malt and grain flavor. Flat; dry. Slightly roasty. Mediocre bit quite drinkable.

stantheman (1354) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2018
A tall can from BCLS North Burnaby. A reddish amber beer with moderate pale head and a sweet malted nose. The hop presence here is muted, with caramel and malt predominating. Lots and lots of caramel. Way too much caramel for this guy. 2.4

ANZUShophunter (980) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2018
From bottle (just past BB date) in English pint. Pours clear, deep bronze with big off-white head, modest earthy aroma w/hint of brown sugar. Taste fairly rich for 3.8%, caramel, light bitterness.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 A session ale at 3.7% abv. It is smooth and soothing, perfect for the long sessions or a second day on the bounce. It is subtle, not hoppy or malty, inoffensive but that is the point. Too few beers occupy this niche these days- a weak abv all day ale.
