Enjoyed from the bottle in a pint glass. This brew pours a bright honey amber with a moderate white head. Nose of caramel malts and some light grains. Flavors are lightly sweet with a light mild grain aftertaste. Smooth easy drinking mouth feel finishes slightly dry and crisp. Decent session brew, nothing overwhelming.

Aroma of skunkiness, burnt caramel, toasted malt, grains. Taste slight sweet malt, caramel, mild grassy bitterness.

Served with no head, only rim bubbles. But there's decent spotty lace on the glass. Dark gold color, reasonably clear.

A bit sweet to the nose. Lots of caramel.

Highly carbonated with a touch of "macro" brewery flavors. Rather sweet but not rich. Short, cloy aftertaste. Overall, disappointing.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, some sweetness. Taste is bready, malts, alcohol, some light apple, a bit unusual aftertaste. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a mediocre beer.
