11oz bottle, enjoy by 1/29/12. Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with a small rocky off white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.brew3crew (182) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2012
The aroma is sweet toasted malts with some vegetal notes.
The flavor is sweet toasted malts with some balancing bitterness in the finish. I get some off plasticky notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I didn’t really care for it. Some off notes and I don’t care for toasted ambers like Fat Tire.
Very much like an Oktoberfest. Malty with a clean finish. It is what it is. Decent beer chris2431 (241) - Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2012

Bottle. Ruby-amber with a short tan head. Aoma is caramel, sweet malt, spicy hops and earthy hops. Sweet malt and caramel dominate the favors with a spicy hoppiness and soft earthy notes. There’s also a mild citrus profile to this. Body is medium with a smooth, creamy carbonation. Ends with more caramel, sweet, chewy malt, spicy hops, soft citrus and mild earthiness. Very drinkable session beer!
