DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Lightly hazed dark orange color. Two fingers of foamy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and only a few wisps of lacing are left. 3.25 S: Toasty with caramel sweetness. Maybe a hint of mineral quality to it. There isnt much going on overall though. Still, its not bad. 3.0 T: The taste is like the nose. Toastiness, a bit of caramel, and mineral. Not much else. Still, its not terrible. It tastes a bit like a bitter, just not a great one. 3.25 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy, but still lacking something here. 2.75 D: Its okay, but its easily forgettable. In fact, uhh....what was I talking about? ★ 688 characters DavoleBomb, Jul 19, 2013

Pours clear coppery-amber with a decent buff head. Malty aroma has a hint of caramel. Flavor has a firm malty stroke supported by yeasty and caramel tones. Texture has decent body and fizz. Prost!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Hazy copper body, kind of dingy & topped with a fuzzy beige collar. No aroma. Literally, none. It gets a "2" because at least it doesnt smell... Bad. I guess. Smells like water. Taste includes some toasted bread & burnt crackers with a touch of floral earthiness underneath. Some lightly sweet biscuity malts in the finish, coating the mouth. Easy drinking, not a bad beer but the aroma kills it because it literally has no smell.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a clear copper with a white head. Bready and caramel aroma. Lightly bitter, but mostly sweet. Light body and low carbonation.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2014
Draft at the brewery on 3rd and Main. Pint glass pour was deep amber to brown but mostly clear. Medium white head lasted and laced. Aroma was malt forward per the style with roasted nuts, dough, dark breads, herbs, and wheat. Smells like walking through a pasture just before harvest. Decent hop balance profile. Medium to light in body, good malty finish. Medium carb. Overall good for the style.
