Thanks to Dave for sending this my way. Clear golden pour with a white head. Smells like lemon, plastic, and sweet malt. Apple juice, sugar, and some booze. The flavor is sweet and a bit boozy. Apple juice, malt, sugar, and some fruit. A touch of lemon, plastic, and rubber. slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Not hateful! Alcohol shows a little in this, but the light to moderate grainy sweetness cuts it ok. Not something I’ll go back to, but definitely enjoyed for the style. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Nice gold pour, white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some light corn notes(not in a bad way). Flavor is sweet, smooth and man they did a great job masking the ABV! cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle @ home, thanks to Ibrew2or3. Thanks Dave! Pours a hazy dark golden appearance with an off white head. Creamed corn, plastic, cabbage, cat litter, paper aroma. Tangy, sightly metallic, chewy grainy, candy corn, minimal grape drank, sweet flavor. Not my favorite but god damn, I love seeing craft malt likkas, bro. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2014
Bouteille de Ibrew2or3, cheers Dave!
De couleur ambrée, col crémeux léger.
Arôme est malté, sur pointe de caramel avec une petite douceur arrivant en rétro-nasal.
Palais offre une belle effervescence, malt cara pâle, houblonné noble sur une note herbacée. Pointe de grillé rappelant un peu le Speculoos. Petite amertume discrète arrive en fin de bouche avec un fruité modéré rappelant un peu le raisin sec. Brève amertume avec un côté pomme léger.

355mL thanks to the LA crew. Thanks to womencantsail perhaps? Pours clear orange. Medium white foam with good retention. Nose is perfumey, spice medley, orange peel. Taste is buttery, apple heavy, paper, and some celery. Palate is seltzery, watery. Strange. Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2013
$10 four pack of 12oz bottles picked up at Sun Devil Liquors. It pours with a dull clear copper body with some gold hues and a short lived weak ass near white head (now we’re talking malt liquor). The aroma delivers up modest smooth pear and ripe honey drenched green apples and not too much else. The taste is sweet with ripe red apple like fruity esters that pull into a sense of sugary sweet malts and then more sweet fruity esters into the finish. This somehow keeps the sweetness in check and I’m not sure how. I few more sips and a light semi sweet raisin note begins to be noticed that help balance out the sweetness.

Aroma malty front. There is something from old 40 oz in there. Sweet pale malt, even touch of hops. Alcohol impressively well hidden.
Top: short lived lighter top.
Base: clear amber.
Palate : rather flat with thinner body.
Taste: lacking sticky corn feel of some Malts yet oily, slick enough for style. Slight hint of hop as in aroma. Very late roughness noted as it warms up.
other notes for this style this is world class
An amber color with malt heavy aroma. This is actually decent. Have some malt and sweetness and you can kind of tell the alcohol content but it’s not too aggressive. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2013
Deep gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of sweet malt and a hinto abv. Sweet malt abv and a good bitter. Medium body with good carbonation.
