Pours dark amber, slight white head. Aroma very malty, Irish ale type stuff. Crrisp and clean/ Eash to drink nice malt profile. Good. bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Tap at Archie’s. Pour is clear, light brown/tan with a light head. Aroma is generic malt, maybe a bit bready. Flavor is the same with a dry hoppy finish. Palate is good, not too harsh. Overall a bit watery, and not very flavorful, just generic. Not worth buying again. wlajwl (6806) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Aroma is nutty malts, tea and a hint of tobacco. The flavor is dry/nutty malts, fruit, a hint of tobacco and a mildly tart/citrus finish. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2014
On tap. Light tan-copper. A-medium malt-caramel, a little roasty, orange. T-medium malt-caramel, a little roasty, citrus/orange hops bite. TylerGreenDC (953) - - OCT 2, 2014
On draft. Malty orange aroma. Malt forward flavors with a hop bitterness finish. Nice but not extraordinary.

Tap at Beercade. Orange-amber pour with a clingy white head. Doughy and malty. Smooth palate with some heft. Pretty solid alt. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 30, 2014
The go to beer and standard for Free State is still one of their best. Deep amber brown with a thick head. Great balance with a tobacco and caramel character. egajdzis (6580) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Chestnut color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, caramel, toast, and toffee malts. Taste of caramel, light roast, nuts, and a semi sweet finish. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 14, 2014
The color is a brownish red with a large light tan head, and the aroma blends caramel malts and doughy yeast. The taste is mildly sour, and a touch umami, and a touch sweet; the palate fuses a medium body, thick texture, soft carbonation, and a malty finish. kevinator (2205) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2014
Decent Altbier even though they advertise it as an amber. Faint German malt aroma. Amber color with a thin head. Light but smooth palate with even carbonation. Up-front malty flavors provide the backbone but it’s not overpowering. Slight hop bitterness but not much. Easy to drink.
