Freon bottle, the pour is clear and a beautiful amber color leans more to orange. The head is thick,white with orange hues. It does lingure. The aroma is caramel, malts and a little yeast. The taste is bright, initially a crisp ale with strong carbonation, then the slight malty sweetness finishes the flavors. The mouthfeel is thin. Overall very solid and drinkable amber ale, not to heavy, good drink for hot day. drjay44 (3801) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Bottled 08/29/2016. Pours a thick, well retained, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 10) body........nose is mild toasted malts, with light caramel, light biscuit, herbal grass notes from the hops.....taste is very slightly toffee/caramel sweet, with toasted tones, finishing with light spicy hop bitterness, balanced......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, light carbonation with mild acid. I would like more Munich, Vienna, and crystal/caramel malt character, but it still is an easy drinking beer. BJCP 6/3/13/4/6 nittanytide (288) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Poured opaque deep copper with a big, foamy head. Faint bready aroma. Taste is bready with a little bit of orange zest on the back end. Decent and balanced. Probably would be a good beer to introduce non-craft beer drinkers to craft beer. leghorn99 (254) - roma, ITALY - OCT 9, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore ambrato chiaro, molto limpido; accompagna una discreta schiuma cremosa, bianca, di buona allacciatura ma di breve durata. L’aroma è dolce di malto, caramello, leggermente fruttato, una bella dose di luppolo, note erbacee e terrose; vi è anche un profumo di biscotto. Il gusto è proprio come l’aroma: c’è una bella miscela di malti e luppolo, ma tutto molto sottile; niente di prepotente. Sapore di malto, caramello, qualche frutta, e poi il luppolo, con note erbacee. Il retrogusto rimane equilibrato tra la dolcezza del malto e l’amaro del luppolo. In bocca scorre via morbida e setosa, un corpo leggero, per una moderata carbonazione; finale appena secco. Grumbo (3845) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
