"i just wasn’t getting the same thing as the previous three...light bodied AND a tad watery. no hop balance at all, just some nutty toasted malt. perfect example of what i’s expect of a decent macro attempt at an amber, but not good from a micro. passable."

Can from Blue Dog. Pours turbid deep orange with big 3-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, hops, mild fruit. Tastes vcery tangeriney, with dry florals and resiny hops in the flavor. Stays dry and hoppy throughout.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear amber with a weird nutty/grainy aroma with a touch of rusty caramel and some earthy funk. Taste was weird and nutty with some earthy caramel and some leafy citrusy hops, which are very subdued.

A red beer. Only very baguely caramelized, otherwise a hearty Bud, with a light soapy finish.

Draft at brewery/pub. Pours clear amber with decent beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel with just a touch of hops. Tastes similar to aroma. OK at best.

Location: 12 oz can (as pictured) from Buy Rite, 3/7/13

Aroma: The nose is buttery, with some caramel malts, a little wet paper, and some metallic notes
Appearance: It pours a hazed reddish color with a small off-white head and medium-plus lace
Flavor: The taste is pretty much the same as the nose, which is to say, not very good at all
Palate: The body is light-medium, it starts off okay, but the mid and late palates both feel unpleasant
Overall Impression: This one is a total stay away for me. It didn’t work at all. Way way too many of the components of it seems like mistakes/flaws. Don’t bother...

This one poured a medium orange color with an off white head. Aroa was of caramel malt and grassy hops. Flavor was similar, moderate bitterness to keep it balanced but nothing stands out.

Thanks to Haley for this one. Can was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice semi-dark red color with a one finger white foamy that dissipated within about a minute. Light messy lacing falls all over the glass. The smell was a deep roasty caramel to nutty aroma. The taste was sweet and roasty through the previously noted aromas. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the palate. It’s got a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation was appropriate. Overall, I’d have it again.
