Murky deep gold pour with off white head. Lite floral nose. Biscuits and rose petal flavors. Lite mouthfeel. Ok.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy tan head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, biscuit, earth, and slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, and slight fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with solid but simple malt and caramel qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Sweet smelling and tasting beer. No sign of hop bitterness anywhere. Very thin body and feel. Beautiful dark caramel color. One dimensional taste, no different layers to the flavor. Easy drinking beer. Has a fuel kerosene smell that is not that unpleasant.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: medium copper, light to no head, bubbling.

Aroma: slightly sweet malts, no hop noticed, light caramel.

Flavor: slightly sweet, canned corn, barley noticeable roasted finish.

Feel: carbonated and blaa.

Overall: Off flavor in aroma and flavor my be caused by poor transportation, but likely it's a fermentation flaw.

Side note: poured from bottle at McNellie's Public House.in Oklahoma City. Cool bottle, not so cool beer.
