Pours clear amber - nose of caramelized sugars, toffee, light spiciness and a mild bitterness - low carbonation, fairly soft texture - flavor is fairly clean caramelized sugars, light toasty maltiness, moderate bitterness, the slightest hint of mineral - finish is medium dry malt - not terrible interesting but clean and enjoyable enough. rjplumer (1180) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Sweet caramel malt aroma. Amber with and orange hue with a modest sized head. Mild sweet caramel malt taste. Medium bodied feel with a subtly rich but refreshing finish and feel. douglas88 (9622) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle from TJs. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A sweet light fruity nose. Toast, caramel, light Pils malt. Smooth and drinkable. Light toast, berries, big sweet malty caramel. OK. Mep3222 (1630) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Caramelized malty aroma and flavor. Nice hop balance. Pretty full flavored. Malt dominant, but a nice beer overall. But if the lagerish funk but not too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone lawman834 (273) - Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Clear copper color. Minimal lacing or head. Mostly caramel malt. A bit bready. A tad bitter on the finish. Overall a pleasant and balanced brew.

Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a soft, slight off white head that leave a thin trail of lacing. Aroma has some light molasses accents, some nuttiness. Flavor leans to the sweet side, some caramel, some molasses notes, a touch of brown sugar. Mouthfeel has a decent texture to it. Not bad. maddmatt639 (344) - Pacifica, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015

Clear, light auburn beer, not much head. Perfunctory label, standard longneck. Slightly fruity and sweet, grainy amber aroma. A nice front to the brew - reasonably hopped, dark straw sweetness, very mild astringency. Sweetish, molasses and dough middle and toasted finish. Slight vanilla in the aftertaste. Medium body, generally smooth mouthfeel with fine-grained carbonation. TJ’s, Tallahassee. chinchill (5312) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2014
