From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like dried fruits, toffee malt, caramel, orange hops, and faint herb. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like toffee malt, caramel, orange hops, and faint herb.

12 oz single bottle, "BEST BY 02/04/16", almost a year ago :( thanks(?) to Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Hazy reddish to amber in appearance with a small, lingering beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, light earthy yeast, toasted grain, light fruity esters and light musty hops. Similar flavor, medium to heavy, lingering sweetness with just a touch of hop bitterness. Light to medium body with soft carbonation and a smooth creamy feel. A little too sweet for me, kind of hard to finish this one. Not too bad I guess, considering its age (©2014). Tastes like a generic amber ale at this point.

Aggiebob (974) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Draft. Red amber in color poured with a thin white head and nice delecate lacing. The malty aroma is fruity with some Brett yeast flavoring in the taste. Medium bodied. The abv seems higher than it actually is.

nearbeer (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2017
12 oz. bb 04/09/2017. Mostly clear orange-copper with some nice swirling bubble activity. Nose is caramel apple with a light funkiness. Flavors of apple, toasted pecan, toffee, a pinch of white pepper, sourish orange/lime zest and some mild leafy-wooden hop bitterness. Light-medium body has a smooth medium carbonation and a sessionable balance.

Copper in color, no head, even after an agressive pour. Aroma is somewhat malty with a slightly sour, almost orange note. Flavor is earthy, hay-and-straw, malt, and cinnamon. Lightly hopped finish that turns rather dry. As it warmed, more fruity flavors, orange, emerged as well as a little alcohol.

ANZUShophunter (384) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2016
On tap at Hyatt Rosemont. Pours amber with modest head and aroma of caramel malt. Hops are subtle counterpoint to malt sweetness as per the description but they remind me a bit of EKG. One decent, easy drinking beer.

Panzuriel (2083) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Appearance: Deeper red copper. Almost clear. Thin head of white bubbles. Nose: Sweeter caramel malt. Lightly roasty. Candy sugar. Mild floral hops. Taste: Sweeter malt forward. Decent light roasty caramel. Light hops. No bitters at all Body: Medium to thinner. Soft carbonation Parting thoughts: A nice beer. Low expectations. A very nice “house beer” from a wine shop.
