A- Coppery-brown with a two finger offwhite head. Decent retention and some lacing.
S- Aroma is bready, a bit of toast, a bit of caramel and some fruit.
T- A good bit of fruityness floats in there with a reasonably malty flavors of bread and toast. Balanced, but the finish leaves me wanting.
M- Medium body for style, carb is good, but a bit too crisp for the style.
O- It's a decent beer, but there isn't that much exciting about it. Worth a try, but not worth putting much effort into seeking out.

My first OMB beer to try.Poured into a becker a rich clear copper with an awesome sticky one finger white head atop,great definition and clarity,top notch looks.Fruity esters along with sweetish pizza dough in the nose,oddly enough even a little booze for such a "small" beer.Fresh pizza dough and caramel sweetness upfront on the palate with some mild fruity esters and a hint of leafy hops,again the fresh dough comes in late in the aftertaste.This is one damn fine rendition of an alt beer it packs alot of subtle delicious flavors,Iam lookin forward to trying the rest of the OMB line.

Served from tap into a New Belgium Fat Tire shaker. Poured copper (surprise, surprise!) with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, bread, and grain. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, banana, bread, and grain. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. There were quite a few nice flavors and aromas going on in this one, but it really didn’t stand out over some other brews I’ve had from the same style. While this was unfortunate, it wasn’t disappointing. If this one were a little more complex it could have been something special, but it just feels as if they held back some. Hopefully they will go for it in the future and truly shock all the craft beer drinkers out there in the future.

Enjoyed while in downtown Charlotte. Made my way to the brewery the next day.

A: thin white head on a clear crimson and copper body. some lacing.

S: mostly caramel malts. Not too complex or strong.

T: sweet caramel malts, breads and grain with the hoppiness in the finish providing a mild bitter, musty note.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: not too bad. One of the most drinkable of their brews but after trying more at the brewery this one seems a little under flavored and simple.
