"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." jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2014
On tap. Offwhite-yellow/gold. A-Slight sour fruit. T-pine hop with some bite, lt/med malt-maybe some caramel. DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012

@ 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. RobertDale (6755) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2010
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. ben4321 (6668) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2013

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
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. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - SEP 4, 2014
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.
