A - Dark brown in color. Poured with zero head and zero lacing. Seemed a bit thick as well.

S - Hints off coffee, clove, caramel and a slightly sour end.

T - Carmel sweetness right up front. Slightly roasted malts, a bit of coffee but the clove is gone. Finishes sweet.

M - A bit thick and carbonation is low. Could use a little work.

O - An average beer for the most part. Got this in a mixed six. I don't think I would ever drop the cash for a full sixer. Worth a try though.

The beer pours a golden-brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of rye and a little bit of toffee malt -- about what I expected. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of rye and some toffee and bread from the malt, as well as a hint of orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent, but definitely nothing to seek out.

A- Bottle to mug, reddish brown color, light tan head that doesn't stay, leaves some lacing.

S- Fruit, sweet

T- Little bitter, metallic, spice

M- Medium bodied, goes down smooth

O- Not a bad beer, something different that I hadn't tried before. Got this in a reunion sixer, review from my notes. I would drink it again.

A nice copper brown color with a thin light beige head quickly yielding to a slight ring.

Fragrances were grainy, sweet, barley.

Lighter bodied, toasted oak, wheat, touch of toffee.

Short finish that has just a bit of hops at the end. Clean, simple, drinkable. Nothing special but certainly an easy drinker. Lacking complexity and very straightforward....great for a sunny cool spring day like today.
