Ibrew2or3 (8281) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2011
12oz bottle pours clear bubbly deep amber with tall tan head. The aroma is a little dusty, a little sweet nuttiness, a little roasted malts and then a touch of fruity esters. The taste has somewhat neutral and watery notes mixing with a bit of roasted malts, a bit of sweet nuttiness, dark roasted coffee and a mild level of drying roasted malt astringency.

wasnt the worst amber, but needed a little work. missing a lot of flavor and think the keg could have been kept a little colder.

Gription79 (2854) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Draft at "A Bar Named Sue." Copper with red highlights, off white head. Smells of caramel malts, with the faint aroma of fruity hops. Taste is consistent with the nose. Finishes on the sweet side. A decent, readily available beer in the SLC area.

An OK beer. This is one of only a few Wasatch beers that I will drink if no other good craft beer is available.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2009
bottle consumed 9/13/09. hazy amber pour topped by a small tannish/off white head. smells mostly of sweet grain with notes of cinnamon-y spice, faint orange/citrus, some florals and a touch of chocolate. the flavor is... not especially good.... its grainy and sweet with lots of leftover sugar. orange, citrus tartness, florals, some buttery caramel (not diacetyl but not pleasant) and a slightly herbal finish make up the flavors. the body is medium and has a certain swampy feeling to the texture... its kinda hard to describe but swampy really comes to mind. meh. 5.5/3/4.5/2/10/2.5

Pours clear bright copper with and off-white head. Medium body, nearly still. Almost no aroma. Caramel and butter taste fades into nothing.
