UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 I assure you I will enter my entire review as soon as possible. This beer is a slightly hazy copper color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, resiny hops and a bit of earth. The finish is lightly hopped with a mildly bitter aftertaste. A little better than expected, but an average beer overall. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 21, 2010

This is just pure garbage, fart in a bottle. Why even bother to make this drivel? hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2012

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear golden orange with a medium to large beige head. Very sweet caramel on the nose, lots of toast. Sweet, toast and a hint of cocoa. Rather empty, sweet and caramel filled. A touch metallic, and almost buttery smooth. Soft bitterness on finish. Better than expected, but still rather dull and not something I’d really want to be drinking much of. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
Bottle… Mostly clear amber lager with orange highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Good, tight retention. The aroma offers lots of Munich malt and a moderate amount of chocolate malt. Also a bit nutty and biscuity. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor has some nice toasted malt sweetness and a bitter hop bite. Finishes snappy and moderately bitter. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2010
