Poured from bottle to pint. Color is a dark amber/copper and head is small.
Odor is pleasant and sweet with some citrus and floral as well.
Taste is a little flat. It seems to not really go anywhere. It is not bad just a little average. Has malt and some toffee notes.
mouth feel is a little disappointing. Light on the tongue and then it seems to go away quickly.

Pours deep amber. kind of reminds me of the chunk of amber with the mosquito in it from Jurassic Park. yep I went there. Remarkably low carbonation and no head.

Loads of caramel malt, hints of corn syrup and toffee. Earthy, and slightly metallic.

Definitely a malty beer, here. Nice caramel notes, hints of toffee, but overall dominated by adjunct corn. Feels nice and slick on the tongue. Earthy feeling.

Pours a ruddy amber. Somewhat lively body carbonation, but head doesn't come up past a half finger and recedes quickly.

Smells faintly of caramel and toffee with a bit of a grassy or rye note. Emphasis on faintly. Taste is similar, a little biscuity, an almost cherry sweetness rounding out the malt. This one feels a little dry, a little chewy.

Overall, a short review does it justice. A little earthy, a little sweet, but mostly just an average amber. Not bad, but I think there are better beers to sate an amber craving.

On tap at New Holland last week. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderate amber color with a thin off-white head and some good lacing. The nose carries a bit of bready malt without too much else. Slight bit of earthy hops. Flavor has an amber-malt base and a slight biscuity chewiness. Other than that, not much going on. Pretty plain. Light-medium body.

This beer pours brilliantly clear red-copper color with a moderate off-white head that quickly diminished to barely a skim. The aroma is moderately malty, sweet, caramel, toasty with hints of raisin as well as a medium-low grassy hop aroma. The flavor is moderately malty--toasty, a bit sweet and grassy touch of hops. The initial flavors are good but very one dimensional. The flavors do not change before disappearing with too clean of a finish. The body is medium and carbonation medium-high. Overall not bad, better as it warms. I would not purchase again.
