Pours a dark red with with a creamy looking white head. Aroma consists of caramel, nuts, some floral hops, and bread. I don’t get a whole lot of bread or the hops in the taste. Instead, I get all caramel and nuts. It is slightly bitter. Nutty aftertaste. This one is lighter in body and slick, with some flatter carbonation. This is very drinkable, but it isn’t terribly exciting.
Candy sweet nose initially with a lightly buttered toast note behind it. A subtly not malt slickness to the palate with a focus on malt toastiness, a hint of roast and a tad bit of slick butter. Decent but not a style I care for. crossovert (12613) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2015
355ml bottle. Amber pour, large offwhite head. ARoma is hoppier than expected, some tropical fruit and citrus, some caramel and dried fruit. Falvor is both earthy and hopppy. This is actually pretty good. HErbal, piney hops, ,caramel, pretzel, supremely dry, spices even the lightest roast/smoke. Complex. A winner in a mundane category. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap at Emmett’s, pours a clear amber with an egg shelled colored head and some spotty lacing in the glass, the aroma actually had a nice hop touch to it with the sweetness following, the flavor has a hoppy and fruity front end with a sweeter finish of caramel and malt, hoppier than I expected, pleasantly surprised. edgallow (4146) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2014

Ruby red color with off white head. Caramel malt and piney hop aroma. Citrus and piney hop flavors balanced by caramel sweetness. Chewy, medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, great mouthfeel. Finishes semi-sweet to dry with a nice hop bitterness to balance out the malty sweetness. Unique, but appropriate style characteristics.

Brewhaha. Poued reddish amber color with a decent off-white head. Decent amount of hoppy aroma which is promising. On the lighter side of medium bodied. Decent balance with a decidedly hoppy finish. Fair to decent beer. wlajwl (6737) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Aroma is malts and light but crisp hops. The flavor is fruit, mildly sweet malts, light citrus and a bitter finish.
