Off-brown water color. No appreciable head to speak of. Great nose though with vienna malt and allspice. Nice full flavor. Very malty. Nice spritzy character and bite. Unfirtunately, the finish is danky. strap (915) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2010

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Sample at Barley’s Smokehouse. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing. Mild hops and toasted malt aroma. Light to medium body with flavors of sweet malt, hops and touches of fruit. The finish is caramel malt with a sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

bottle, thanks to bu11zeye, nut color with an aroma and flavor that reminded me of candy corn and butterscotch nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2010
The aroma is sweet with chocolate, toffee, butter, and a hint of cardboard, nuts, and hops. The appearance is cola colored with a head that fades fast. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a decent beer but nothing special. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2010

Pours a respectable cloudy amber with a quickly dissipating head of beige. Aroma is peachy malt and sugar-coated wet autumn leaves sitting in a pile of dry grass and pancake syrup. Flavor is watery buttered nuts with a light peach-sugar glaze stored in a jar of dried leaves. Average mouthfeel. Not bad; decent beer.
Amber / brown with a good off white head. Aroma has toasted malt and lots of spices. Taste has some sweetness and caramel or toffee to it. Finish has a hops twang and bitterness to it. Odyn (266) - New York, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Nice orange to amber color. Yeasty aroma with some maltiness also. Thin head. Tastes malty and rich but not heavy. A bit of orange marmalade on the finish.
