12 ounce bottle from I forget where, sampled a few minutes out of the fridge in a pint glass. Very clear amber, moderate off-white diminishing head...caramelized malts and light spicy/floral hops evident in the attractive but somewhat weak nose; a bit of cedar intrudes...body is quite sweet with a bit of a brown sugar hint at first but evens out somewhat over the tasting, though there is never much evidence of hop bitterness, the roasty malts merely showing more toastiness and a faint acrid characteristic...full body, almost syrupy mouthfeel, light carbonation. Ehh, it’s all right - definitely best to drink this one cold as it becomes rather cloying with warmth. MrTipple (5956) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Sweet grain malts, caramel, light, sweet citrus fruits, orange. Clear that, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Sweet grain malts continue, bread and caramel, soft carbonation, bitter and dry finish. A touch boring EPA.

Bottle. Toffee malt, quinine, and hay aroma. Amber with moderate head. Moderately sweet toffee malt and moderately bitter grass flavor. Body a bit light. Okay. Carlisle (786) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle. Copper color with off-white head and lacing. Light, earthy biscuit aroma. Sweet biscuit with caramel notes upfront. Pleasant, earthy bitterness in the finish.

12 oz single bottle into a pilsner glass, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Slight hazy, deep orange appearance with a small tan head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel, toffee, light bread and light toasted grain. Similar flavor, medium to heavy malt sweetness with a light hop bitterness and a light, husky grain finish. A little rough, unbalanced and hard to drink.

Pours a clear dark golden with a full white head that laces. Earthy aroma. Taste is caramel malt, maple rock candy sweetness, some mild breadiness, metallic, and no hop character at all. Pretty good. wchesser (2121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Slightly murky brown. Nose of light rye bread and caramel malts. Taste follows with some peppery spice, harsh weird finish. Not good. Jow (4028) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from atom as a trade extra which I appreciate since I have new found vigor for trying new breweries. Light copper pour with grainy nose. Tastes grainy, earth bitters, light pepper, and tea. Stale palate. Reminds me of the Polotmavy I’ve been seeking. zoucrew102 (2048) - - APR 5, 2015
Bottle, thanks George999! Aroma is basically all caramel malt with biscuit malt and very little hops. Pours clear amber colored with a thin white head and some lacing. Starts with a lot of sweet caramel malt flavor with a bit of biscuity malt. Finishes smooth with the caramel persisting on the palate for quite a while after the sip with a slight hop content. Decent. Strangebrewer (1334) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
bottle. Poured clear amber with a filmy white head. Aroma of sweet bread with a slight herbal hop note. Medium body, average carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel that finishes just a little sticky with mild bitterness. Mainly malt flavour, sweet caramel and light toasted notes, alcohol is well hidden.
