Draft at TG. Malty aroma, lots of toast and caramel, some citrus and pine. Pours a light brown, slightly orange color, one finger off-white head with decent retention, leaves a bit of lacing. Flavor is heavy on the toast and caramel malt, nutty, bread crust, Moderate to high bitterness, some citrus notes but the hop flavors are a bit muddy. Medium body and carbonation. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2011

Tap at Short’s in IC. The body is a little hazy with a khaki head. Nose is malty caramel with hints of apple. There is also some peanut. The taste is grapefruit and a little nutty pecan. The finish has a little wood and more caramel. Overall pretty good. CanIHave4Beers (4207) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2011

Poured with a fine, creamy long lasting, light tan head, with lots of lace. Color is a hazy brownish amber. Aroma is very malty, caramel, ripe apricots, yeast. Flavor is similar with a some hop and apricot jumping out. Great body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor and has some duration with a little bitterness at the very end. Session beer. Yum!
