Bottle from the BevMo in Folsom, CA. Pours amber with a foamy off-white head. Smells malty. Maybe a little hop. Med body, or close. It has a certain nuttiness. If this were blind tasting, I’d consider it a brown. Even seems to have a hint of chocolate. Ok ale, just not my preference. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep amber with a big beige head. Aroma of piney hops, malt, caramel and nutty notes. Sweetish malty flavor with a bit of biscuits, caramel and toast, light fruitiness and a drier, somewhat bitter finish with some metallic hints. Light to medium-bodied. OK. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2010

Bottle. Apple, berry and caramel malt aroma. Amber with nice tan head. Sweet caramel malt flavor. Bitter vegetal finish. Smelled good but not a fan of the finish. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2010

9/7/10. Thanks, Cavie! Clear amber pour with a khaki head that fades fast but laces a lot. The aroma is huge burnt licorice/anise, which transfers huge into the flavor with a hint of mint and sour. This is very odd. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2010
From my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a small tan head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was faint tangy, malty and a bit vegetal. The flavor was tangy with a sour malty base that was a touch vegetal and had undertones of caramel, vague fruits and pecan. The finish was medium length tangy and malty. The body was smooth and moderately full. An easy drinking beer that is more pleasant to quaff than the individual elements would suggest. Pleasant.
