wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Tasted on 9/23/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle brought to me by a friend from Chicago. Pours amber with a deep red hue and a beige with a deep red tinted head that is very thick and slowly recedes to messy lace, leaving a bunch of residue inside the glass. The nose is pretty straightforward amber ale with fresh orange and just a touch of sweet beets. The flavor is fairly straightforward with some caramel malt notes, a hint of bitterness, and plenty of zesty orange with a touch of beet sweetness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long zesty orange and lightly bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours dark amer with big beige head. Aroma is light acidic, orange, cocoa, wood, mandarin, vanilla, wet tobacco. Taste is chocolaty, orange, light acidic, malty, fruity, caramel, earthy. Light carbonation, toasty mate and earthy beets. Fun one.

(22oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, earth, baking cocoa, some citrus, and brown sugar. Flavor of herbs, caramel, vegetal, grass, light orange peel, and earthiness.

Bottle, shared by beerpig317. Clear amber - copper color. Thin khaki head, little lace. Malty "old hop" aroma. Caramel malt and mustiness. Medium-plus body. Light, more crisp, smooth carbonation. More dry texture. Sweet taste, light bitter. There may be a little earthy herbal flavors here, but at this point the old hop aroma is predominant, tastes a bit past its prime, drinking a bit like an old IPA right now. Still happy to have tried this.

Bottle... Blazer’s low-key O-Town Throwdown 2012… Clear dirty-orange pour with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet features caramel, buttery toffee and a hint of earthiness. Full-bodied and creamy with pillow-soft carbonation. The rich flavor is an odd marriage of big-time earthy beet and sweet toffee that somehow totally works for me. Earthy, sweet, beet finish. I love beets.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Strange beer. Pours with a hazy brown hued body with a small, off-white head. Aromas are of coffee, cocoa, brown sugar, nutty, baking powder, oak. A touch powdery and earthy smelling. Flavors are nutty, a bit tannic, caramel, chocolate, roast, mocha. Medium carbonation, somewhat pesky alcohol flavors for 7%. Medium dry. Odd beer.

Gift from a friend. This poured so beautifully. Deep rich redish brown. Really light up front and finished floral and really complex. aroma was really impressive. The first impression is a rich and very heavy brew. smells sweet and floral. Smells full bodied and intense. That is way the first taste is exactly the opposite. Still a wonderful mouthfeel. Really great beer. Fitting for the standard of a restaurant such as Next.

anders37 (26734) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2012

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Woodshop. Color is red/orange. Head is yellowish orange. Aroma of root vegetables straight up! Flavor is lighter than the aroma, some earthy dirt, beets. Finishes a bit dry. Odd but interesting.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
651mL at Woodshop 7. Pours a clear, deep orange tea color. Almost no head formation. Nose is sweet carrot and beets, sweet tea, earthy oolong tea. Taste is buttery, bitter, malty, heavy on oatmeal, toffee, and thick rustic malt. Palate is clean but weak and watery.
