This beer has a decent head and apperance. The smell is of caramel malts and cascade hops. Weird whiskey like undertone smell.

This beer is overpowered by a strong alcohol presence. I can't stand that. I want to taste a balance of malts and hops and I want the alcohol to have a back seat to that. I don't like alcohol to be the dominating flavor.

The mouthfeel is thin and watery.

This beer is not that great for a session. Pass on this one.

On tap at the brewpub.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of sweet toffee in it without too much else going on. The flavor is similar. There is a ton of toffee and caramel notes, as well as as little bit of grass from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad.

It looked like rusty water. There was no head, just a thin lacing that quickly faded away.

The aroma was not too promising. A slight sweet maltiness.

The taste was not very good. It had a dirty water and caramelized taste. The little flavor that was there was disappointing. It had too much of a caramel sweetness with virtually no hops to help it out. My sister ordered this and she didn't think much of it. Not worth the time, get something else.

Pours a mahogany amber with a bit of a head. Smell is fairly simple, honey, whole wheat bread, and a floral hoppiness. Taste follows suit, beginning with a bready malt that is balanced with a very 'domestic' floral hop and finishing with a sweet touch of honey. Mouthfeel is thin and dry, as should be. Impressive amber, highly sessionable.

Color is a pale amber with a short, off-white head. Aroma has a standard amber lager sweetness. Taste is of light biscuity malt with some caramel mixed in as well. An edge of citrissy hop seems a bit out of place here. A bit more sweetness seems to be needed. Okay, this is fairly average, something seems a bit off, the drinkability is not here for this style of beer..
