3.38/5 rDev -1.5%
(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear deep orange body with a thin patchy foam of big bubbles on top supported by a strong carbonation of big bubbles.
S- The aroma is very clean with some faint metallic hop coming through and turning more green as it warms.
T- The soft taste of water blends with some brown nougat that turns more caramel nougat as the beer warms. There are some notes of toasted malt underneath and a strong pine hop bite in the finish. There is a soft green hop note that lingers a bit after each sip and has a light sulfury taste or carbonic acid taste.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a tight fizz finish and no alcohol heat.
D- This beer is pretty clean but I was surprised by the amount of hops in this beer compared to the much softer malt and watery taste.

Pours a amber goldish color with a nice white head covering it, and leaving behind a decent lacing.
An amber caramel malt aroma is quite welcoming.
The taste is sweet caramel malts with hints of light hops.
And the after taste was slightly dry with a nice sweet edge to it.

Appearance - Clear amber body with an off white head.
Smell - Malty with strong, definite honey.
Taste - Very alcohol heavy. Some grassy hop. Like an IPA. Lots of astringency in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Smooth body with an alcoholic bite.
Overall Drinkability - Pretty good beer, but the aftertaste really diminishes it.

Had on tap at The Library in Albuquerque, NM. Great brew, especially compared to everything else they had there. Pours a solid amber color (duh) and goes down smooth, a tinge bitter but nothing too crazy. Smooth well carbonated and it smells great, I'd probably have it again. Never even knew about this beer and compared to other beer in this category there isn't much to make it a stand out per say but I'd definitely try it again if it's on-tap.

Amber color and very clear. White head with very good retention.
Nice and malty aroma with a hint of earthy hops.
Medium bodied with a great malt flavor. Sweet up front with a bit of toast. Malty sweet with herbal and earthy hops toward the middle, and toasted, earthy finish.
A great session beer. Not anything to rave about but I could spend the whole night drinking these.

12 oz. bottle tried 28 Feb 2011. Served in the ~0.5 L Marble becker.
Medium sized tight off white head. Moderate carbonation. Clear dark copper/rust color. Aroma is a touch floral, sweet tart pears and apples. Starts sweet and malty. Touch of apples. Very light bitter finish. Medium body, minimal ethanol.
Thirst quenching but that's about it.
