10/26/11. 11oz stubby bottle. Clear red pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half but sticks and laces a bit. Very plain aroma of white bread, cream, a touch of caramel, and even a hint of soapiness. Sweet, malty flavor that lingers grainy with a touch of tart apples. Meh.

Little stub bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet bready notes, caramel malts, a touch of creamed corn and then a bit of nuttiness. The taste comes across as similar with caramel drizzled slices of Roman Meal bread mix with a slight corn flakes note and the nuttiness riding around in the background. Overall this works pretty well. jackl (8611) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2014

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark toffee-amber color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, a bit of dark fruits and bread. The flavor was sweet and tangy with notes of toasted caramel, sugar and dark fruits. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Pleasant.

Superior, Co. - Superior Liquors - 12 oz stubby bottle. Dark copper pour, slightly off-white colored head. Aroma has a bit of a sweet caramel essence to it. Flavor is decidedly sweet with some dates, raisins, caramel and some ripening vegetable notes. Turns a bit boozy in the finish. Thick enough mouthfeel.

15th Jan 2018, dumpy 11 oz bottle into a Lowenbrau (Munchen) stemmed glass while on holiday in California. Amber body with a red hue, wispy off-white head. Caramel esters and flavours seem to be the most forward, light spicy notes within the taste. Nice. Sledutah (8127) - Utah, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Stubby 11oz bottle picked up at The Grapevine after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Appearance: Pours clear golden/brown with a small off-white head, no lacing
Aroma: Toasted malts, toffee, wheat with some mild smokiness
Taste: Malty, sweet caramel, nutty with a mild bitterness
Decent, sweet but it has a bitterness to offset it.
12-oz stubby. Thanks, M! Really appreciate the tick. Pours a crystal clear and very dark amber with almost no head or lace. Stale aluminum, caramel, toast, and artichoke nose. Creamy light body with very little carb. Toast, caramel, artichokes, and sesame oil on the mid palate. Long earthy, slightly acrid finish.
