3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Cloudy amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, Belgian yeast spiciness, some bread, caramel, light toffee. Taste is moderately sweet, bread, some Belgian yeast spiciness, caramel, cantaloupe. Light-medium body -- no thinness despite the low ABV -- and very drinkable.
Pours a brown/amber color with an off white head. Malty, earthy aroma. Sweet caramel malt up front followed by light citrus and a herbal earthy hop finish and yeast flavors. If you want me to buy a beer give it a GOT themed name. Maxbier (999) - Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2015
Draft at source. Clear medium brown color with thin tan head. Light malt aroma. Flavor is Belgian yeast(y), hint of tart and fruits. A little too much unfermented wort flavor for me, but not a bad ale. BierMeHoos (644) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Franklin’s Restaurant, Brewery & General Store in Hyattsville, MD, part of a flight of 10. Appearance is a dark, hazy, sort of amber color with a nice head and decent lacing. Aroma is with citrus and malt. Taste is sweet malts with a nice hop behind it, lingers too. Palate is medium-bodied. This is pretty good, and low ABV. nimbleprop (8708) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2013

Draft on 01/11/13. Came to the table a reddish mahogany color with a skim of a beige head. The subtle aroma primarily featured some light touches of caramel, toffee, toasted grains, a little coffee, and the slightest hint of a citrusy tanginess way off in the background. Went down fairly thin-bodied. Caramel and toffee started things off taste-wise. There was a sizable biscuity dryness in the middle. The finish was crisp and only slightly bitter. Very sessionable, but the lack of alcohol presence really hurt the depth of this one.
