Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear, bright amber-gold with a creamy, tan cap. Tasty, well rounded. Some toffee and toasted bread on the nose.

Moderate sweetness at the end with dry and toasted caramel, light doughy bread. Tasty though fairly elementary.

crossovert (12255) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2011
650ml bottle. Bottled on 11.10.11. It pours a nice deep brownish copper with a fluffy off-white head. The smell is hop-forward. Not what I was expecting but interesting. It is really flowery with some sweet dough in the background and a hint of cocoa. The flavor leans towards both the hops and the sweetness. This brewery seems to like a decent amount of sweetness. It is pretty tried and true though, a solid dunkel.

hopscotch (10992) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle... Clear, deep copper lager with a small creamy off-white head. Decent retention. I had a hard time pulling any aromatics from my glass for a good while, but I was finally able to hunt down some malty and toasty notes accompanied by buttery toffee. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a mish-mash of buttery toffee, caramel, minerals and earthy hops. Its balanced quite well. Short, lightly bitter finish.

ben4321 (6137) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Location: Multiple drafts at CLT, first one was 12/18/14

Aroma: Sweetish aroma of caramel malts, bread, toast, mild earthy hops, and some nutty notes
Appearance: Brownish color with a reddish hue, a light brown head, and some decent lacing
Flavor: The taste leans sweet, with a light, balancing bitterness, and a clean malty sweet finish
Palate: It is fairly light bodied, with a decent mouthfeel, mild stickiness, and average carbonation.
Overall Impression: Since the only bar in terminal A has terrible beer, the OMB seasonal tends to be the best option. Ive had probably 8-10 of these over the last month, and it is straight up okay. Basically the definition of okay.
