On tap in a sampler glass. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops and cereal like malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.
Draft. Light amber body with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, toasted grain, bread, melon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Initial sweetness nicely balanced with grapefruit rind bitterness, citrus acidity. Clean malts. Enjoyable. Tmoney99 (15130) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Tap sample at IBGWF 2013. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer that would go well with spicy food.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Hoppy lager that does not resemble a lager. Slight sweetness with tangerine and orange. Maybe apricot. Well balanced. Very good. b3shine (9271) - Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Draft to taster at AtG. Looks solid; a transparent amberish-copper with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; nicely hopped with a sweet, light backbone that goes down nicely. Good on the palate. Good beer. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2012

Aroma of strong lemon/herbal hops, moderate bready malts and some nuts. Appearance is copper/red with a sticky bone head. Hops are at the fore, with pumpernickel bread in tow; the finish is herbal and bitter. This beer is medium bodied and sticky with lively carbonation. Very well done.
