Tap @ Shorty’s, NYC. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are caramel, notes of fruits, malt and hops. LetsGoState (886) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Appearance is medium white head with clear amber. Aroma is some bready malt. Taste is on the weaker side with mostly malt. Overall not bad, but not great. bhensonb (15251) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours amber with a creamy/frothy off-white head. Aroma of light pitted fruit and mild caramel. Med body. Roasty malt - perhaps a bit roastier than most ambers. There’s a little bit of fruit and/or citrus hop to balance. Sort of the usual amber, except perhaps a little bit more bitter. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin wispy film. The nose is slightly grainy with a light touch of hops. A slight touch of caramel. The flavor is dry and a little husky with just a minimal touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly light bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Pretty pedestrian stuff. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 6, 2012
On tap at brewery. Light red with a fizzy white head. Malty citrus and candy sugar aroma and taste with a chewy palate.
marcus (10232) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pours light amber with a thick beige head and a mild toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. drowland (8766) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2012
4/8/12. 12oz bottle. Clear light amber pour, maybe copper. I would have expected it to be a little darker and more red. Nice big tan/khaki head. Thick, but a little loose. Seems to be sticking around, but doesn’t lace very well. Just a little bit of sipping lines and spotty sheets. A little bit of astrigent alcohol in the aroma. Deep nuttiness with a bit of roasted malt and chocolate. WHat mainly sticks out is big bready nuttiness with a touch of caramel. Roasted nuts and a bit of burnt caramel. The taste is about the same - big nutty, bready malt background. More of an astringent bitterness than the aroma led on. I don’t think it’s from the hops, but from the roasted malts. Nutty, bready, a little bit of chocolate. Maybe a bit of alcohol astringency. It says hopped and dry-hopped with Cascade and Sterling. I’m not getting much hop presence at all. Middle of the road body - not to thick, not to thin. Medium carbonation. Overall, nothing special. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2012
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Light bitter hoppy flavor with a quick finish. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle. Amber pour with a moderate, foamy white head. Aroma is floral hops, citrus fruit, and soft caramel. Taste is citrus, floral hops, melon, peach, sweet malt, soft caramel and light nuttiness. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, citrus notes, more peach, sweet malt and floral hops. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pours an amber red with a nice off white head. A bit of sticky lacing on the way down. Smell is a bit hoppy. I detect a bit of citrus and floral hops, although nothing terribly overwhelming. Also a bit of bread and a tiny amount of sweetness, although not much. Taste brings forward some bitterness along with some drier malt. Medium mouthfeel and good carbonation. This is not a bad representation of the style and there certainly aren’t any glaring defects, which is one good thing I can say. However, there’s nothing here to really draw me in.
