Keg at Anodyne Coffee House, 8/24/16. Clear reddish copper, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malt and stone fruit. The taste is caramel malt, jammy strawberries. Thin-medium bodied, simple but drinkable and pleasant.

crossovert (11794) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours a hazy reddish brown with a thick, foamy slightly off-white head. The nose is pretty simple, some raisiny fruits, caramel, and perhaps some alcohol. The flavor doesn’t go to far, there is a thick walnuttines and caramel flavor, also some alcoholic twang. It is okay, but nothing exciting really.

Apple juice colored pour, not much head. Flavor of old apple juice, rotted apples, caramel. Might be MY demise.

BVery (9907) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle. Orange amber pour with a small amount of sediment - huge light cream colored head that held shape for several minutes. Mild aroma of sweet caramel. Medium palate. Taste is smooth caramel malt, just a touch of sweetness - very drinkable. Taste isn’t quite as good as it warms, however, very nice representation of the style.

phaleslu (9705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Draft at Greenbush Bar. Pours a rich ruby-amber color with a finger-thick off-white head, very creamy. Aroma of sweet malts, apples, cherries, toast, and hops. Flavor is malty, fruity, and sweet, with notes of caramel, mixed fruit juice, and just a bit of earthy hops. Light-bodied, with average carbonation and a mouthfeel that borders on malty and juicy. Finishes crisp and clean. Definitely sessionable. Easy-to-drink, straightforward beer with a cool story to the name.
