Bottle from Half Time. Pours light amber with a slight, creamy beige head. Aroma is fruity hop over caramel. Med body +. Flavor is grassy! Fruity is very low key. There’s a nice roast malt backbone. For me this is more dry than not, and grassy is good. Nice. Drake (14033) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2012
12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a slight hazy bronze color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and faint hops. The taste is toasted malts, citrus hops. Medium bodied. Decent. blipp (9501) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 2, 2012
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Malty grainy aroma, with some light sweetness. The flavor has this weird wet-dog thing going on, with some weird sweetness and light hops. Not that good. JoeMcPhee (9448) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
Tap at Pony Bar. Pale amber colour. The nose has a little bit of light caramel behind some industrial malts. A touch of crackery malt and a fairly soft sweet base. There is a fairly light palate along with some light sort of fusel character. Meh - I don't think I'll ever really like this style.

pours hazy golden orange with a small white head, some retention and lacing. spicy graininess and fruitiness - apricots, hint of caramel and sweetness, lightly toasted malts, shy german character, pepper, bit of booze. low carbonation, light body - oily and almost sticky, short but present herbal-grassy finish. o-k.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-copper color with a small foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel and light vegetal malts. The flavor was sour, tangy and vegetal with notes of caramel and dark fruits. Medium caramel and fruit finish. Moderately full bodied.

New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2): Pours a light amber with barely any head. Aroma is bubblegum and nondescript dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet, uncomplex, and light. Leaves some bockish aftertaste. Pretty uninteresting, and I don’t know that I would reach for this sooner than I would for a pale lager. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is slightly sweet with some soggy grains and just a light hint of hops. Flavor wise it’s a bit bland, some slight honey and bready malt sweetness without much backing from hops. Slightly sticky and lingering on the finish. It lacks any sense of crispness or heft to the body. Not terrible, but not something I’d ever seek out again. TheBeerGod (6241) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. Amber bodied with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with lots of caramel, grains and bready notes. Taste is slightly hoppy with more toasted malt, caramel, light grassy notes and hints of dark bread. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, sweet malt, toasted bread, fruit notes, grains and grassy notes. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a hazy orange/brown colored body with a small white head that appeared for less than a minute and then died altogether. There was barely any lacing and what there was of it slightly spider-webbed. The body was too hazy for carbonation to be seen rising.
The smell was a bland stale caramel.
The taste was once again stale caramel blended with some pale malts. There was a slight hoppy finish with some skunkiness as well.
The palate sat about a medium and a bit watery - sessionable.
Overall, honestly I really didn’t like this.
