From the 650 ml. bottle with no date to be found. Sampled on December 28, 2014

The pour is a cloudy brown tone under a decent sized two-finger off-white head. Sediments.

The aroma is more malt forward than anything else. Not a lot in the way of brown nuttiness. Something like melon too.

The body is around medium but feels sort of creamy.

The taste has a dominant grainy and caramel malt character with a mild earthy bitterness on the finish.

a burgundy /brown clean pour with 2 fingers of cream colored head. nice retention and sticky lacing!
smells like a cross of a malty amber ale and a nutty hopped up brown ale.
tastes slightly bitter up front, with a sweet caramel like malt backbone. subtle nuttyness, very mellow flavored beer.
medium body, very creamy, medium carbonation.
nothing TOO special in this one, but it really is very tasty! glad i picked it up at least to try it.

22oz bottle, hand labeled

I assume this will be a rotating release. Pours a light reddish brown color with a small tan head. Excellent balance here sweet caramel malts with an assertive hop character. Medium/light bodied very drinkable. I really like the direction Cricket Hill is taking with these 22oz releases.
