look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
This brew pours a reddish brown color with a two finger tan head which lasts for several minuets. Some of the head remains on top until the end. Good carbonation. Moderate lacing.
The smell is thick and malty; bready and yeasty. Dank earth, grassy and fruit smells.
The taste follows the nose with thick bready roasted and sweet malts. A sugary then nutty taste follows with a small amount of piney hops on the backend.
The feel is thick and chewy; malty along with a dry grassy taste left on the tongue after swallowing.
Overall this is a good malty beer. It is fairly sweet with just enough malts to balance it out from becoming too sweet. My one complaint is that the nutty smell did not come through in the taste, at least not that I could detect. If you like malty, thick brews then give this one a try.

Had no idea what style this was supposed to be; I remember thinking and saying "well, it doesn't taste bad, but it is probably the most boring beer I have had in a long time." It's reminiscent of many mediocre brewpub "Copper Ale" offerings. Altbier? I've been to Dusseldorf, this isn't an altbier. Maybe a year old bottle of Uerige, at best...
Over the years, I have become less and less of a Terrapin fan, had a blast at their brewery a couple years back, but it's been a long time since I was really impressed by them. White Chocolate MooHoo was nice enough and put them up a notch, but even the new super limited stuff still isn't doing all that much for me. Tree Hugger brought them back down to where they were before I had the WC MooHoo. Wake-n-Bake is always I treat when I see it, but unfortunately that release has made it's way into the "hyped up beer club".
Maybe the fact that they are 40ish% owned by MillerCoors has something to do with it, but I'm glad that more breweries are popping up in GA and offering something different than the (dare I say it) "Older/Larger" GA breweries.
Appearance: Copper color, thin white head.
Nose: Not much there, some barely, stale European hops.
Taste: Same as the nose, barley, a touch of hops.
Mouthfeel: dry enough, and rounded. Probably the best attribute.
Overall: Year round offering...who's buying this? I suppose that this bottle could have been old and maybe it's more interesting fresh (I didn't notice a freshness date).
