16 oz. can poured into a tumbler.
A- Amber with some light orange highlights. Light tan head retains at a ring.
S- Sweet caramel. Some nutty aromas and a hint of booze.
T- Sweet and toasty malt. Some dry bitter hop to balance.
M- Medium body. Just a bit of a drying finish.
O- Rather malty. I like the nutty characters.

473ml can poured into tulip 27/7/13
A slight haze in a dark maroon body, large 3 finger foam has great retention just sitting there for ages, 4 thick distinct rings before it falls to an island, looks very sexy
S herbal hops and grainy malt, lots of butterscotch and I've found it in the other Tin Man brews I've had and would guess its diacetyl, very faint nutty aspect and wet tea bag
T some leafy hops added to all the herbal notes, still lots of butterscotch and caramel malt, again it seems flawed but not offensive
M leaning towards full and fairly creamy, herbal finish lingers perhaps a highlight in a rather basic brew
O has similar flavors and smell to the other brews I had from these guys and considering how different the styles were they shouldn't taste that similar, nothing special and perhaps some minor flaws
this brewery didn't make the best first impression on me, nothing all that bad but nothing to write home about

16oz single can, round 2 of this northern half-breed American's trip through his American import collection. I continue to like the spaced-out Bender Rodriguez robot in this brewery's logo.
This beer pours a mostly clear, medium bronzed amber hue, with two fat fingers of puffy, densely foamy pale beige head, which leaves a near-solid array of bleeding high-altitude cloud lace around the glass as things slip away.
It smells of biscuity, grainy caramel malt, with a touch of crystallized toffee, mushed apples, a hint of generic citrus, and peppy earthy, leafy, and somewhat grassy hops - very ESB-esque, actually. The taste is sweet caramel malt, with enough sassy biscuit and toffee notes to avoid that certain ennui, muddled, understated orchard fruit, and fairly AWOL (relative to the nose, anyway) earthy, kind of weedy, grassy hops.
The bubbles are very much on the down-low, with just the basest of support fulfillment, the body a sturdy medium weight, and generally quite smooth. It finishes well off-dry, the caramel malt standing up through it all, idiosyncrasies intact, while the soft earthy, leafy hops keep their heads down in their seeming drudgery.
Tin Man seems mostly capable of making beers that lean towards the mean, and this offering is the bulls-eye on that particular metaphoric board. Easy to drink, the hops nothing less than what was promised, and worthy of a few rounds, I would imagine.
