3.34/5 rDev +11%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Crystal-clear copper-colored body with a massive summit of coarse, persistent off-white foam. Sticky Belgian-like lacing adorns the glass walls. The carbonation is sparse and minute, drifting lazily to the surface.
Aroma: Features caramel and toasted dark bread aromas, as well as some very mild herbal hops.
Taste: Opens with toasted malt and some nutty flavors, as the taste progresses, it takes on a mineral characteristic, as well as some charred flavors. Finishes with the burnt flavors, and some fairly earthy hops, which seem to linger on and on well past the end of the taste.
Mouth feel: Smooth, fairly full, with a slight sting of carbonation, and a sensation of hard water.
Drinkability/notes: Not bad really, its not likely to be a favorite of mine, but would do in a pinch.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle

Appearance is really great. Huge off white head clear amber color and really dense lacing.
Still had some head at the bottom of my nonic glass. Smell is bready malt with a bit of caramel malt. No hop smell.
Taste is sweet malts with enough herbal hops to balance the taste.
Mouthfeel is medium with enough carbonation. Finish is slightly dry with a balanced finish.
Overall I did not care for the bottled version but this review comes from a 16 ounce can brewed in Ft. Worth (Miller) and it is much better than the bottled version. I hate to say this as a long time union member but the boys in Ft. Worth are brewing some excellent beers. Check out the Fosters Oil cans from the same brewery. Best Fosters ever. The can date Jun 16 2014. Has to be the brewed on date cause this beer was really tasty.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. smell is very mild, some light malts. Taste is also mild, malty, a bit of grains, refreshing but bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall not terrible, but nothing special about this beer.
