500 mL bottle. The pour is a darker golden amber with a thick pillowy white head and no lace as it falls down to a thin ring. The aroma is pretty good. The sweetness is big. Sweet malts and caramel up front with a soft light fruit and a candy on it. Sweet, not over bearing and good. The flavor is keeping up the sweet malt. The caramel fades a little in favor of the fruits and an earthy hop bitterness takes over on the back end. The mouth feel is medium bodied and has a little too much of a carbonation happening. The aftertaste is lingeringly malty and carries that earthy bitterness. Not too bad. 7 4 7 4 15

Bottle pours a clear pale amber gold with a huge off white head. Wet dog like aroma of caramel and toffee malt. Taste of light clean caramel and toffee malt with a light earth hop and yeast on the finish. Decent and drinkable for the style.

Pours murky dark amber with a big, frothy head. Aroma has notes of berry on a solid caramel base. Taste is bittersweet, with the sweet component noticeably dominant. Notes of toffee, apple and mineral water. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, good stuff.

ajnepple (7079) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2017
330 ml single bottle from Molly’s Spirits for $3.37. Clear, light amber appearance with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of Munich malt, bread, toasted grain, mild hops and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, adding mild to moderate sweetness, light to mild bitterness and a lingering Munich malt finish. Medium body with ample carbonation. Clean, smooth and easy to drink. Probably not too fresh, but this is drinking nicely. Spot on.
