A - Pours a fairly clear red color with a touch of brown mixed in and a finger of frothy tan-brown head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace spots in the process. S - Sweet rich lightly toasted caramel malts with a bit of citrus hops alongside. There is a touch of bread as well in the background. T - Starts off with rich sweet lightly toasted caramel malts that have a touch of a syrupy element to them. There is a bit of orange and grapefruit hops alongside with just a hint of bitterness. Through the middle, the syrupy flavor starts to mellow out a bit and a bit more orange from the hops comes through. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel malts and a bit of citrus hop and bitterness. M - A bit less than medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Could have used either a touch more body or a bit less syrupy feeling upfront. Could have used a touch more hop as well.

Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 5/16/11

Aroma: The nose is slightly sweet, some caramel and a little citrus
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a thin head
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet with mostly caramel malt flavors
Palate: The body is falrly light (leaning toward medium) and the mouthfeel is clean
Overall Impression: Overall, this was a decent brew. Drinkable, but unremarkable, this is a solid, caramel malt dominated, amber ale.

I’m not a huge fan of this brew. Has nice foam quality. The brew is O.K... Its not real hoppy so I’d say it’s an easy beer to drink.

Draft. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has light notes of hops, citrus, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of vegetables, straw, and hops - flawed. The finish is dry and bitter.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep medium amber color with a well-formed off-white head. Aroma is fairly typical for the style: caramel malt and hops. The hops are slightly earthy with a noticeable cannabis presence. Like many of HMB’s hoppier beers, the wacky tobacky is a substantial flavor note here. Sweet caramel malt balances earthy, resinous, and weedy hops. Medium-bodied, maybe a little on the light side, with average carbonation. A respectable low ABV amber ale overall. Not amazing, but drinkable.
