BeerRenter76 (862) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with honey and spice flavors on the finish, not getting the vanilla anywhere. Overall, this is an ok beer, not much going on.

Malt dominates the aroma with hints of vanilla. Appearance is a cloudy Amber with a small off white head. Flavor is oxidized and muddled. Malt flavor dominates and the spices are mostly hidden. Notes of toast and caramel are present with a hint of coriander. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's oxidized which dramatically affected the flavor of the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
