On-tap, served in a 12oz pint glass, at the Forget Me Not Inn location:

The beer appeared a nice clear red with a nice creamy white head that was well retained. It had a light, sweet malt aroma, with a stronger malty flavor. The beer had medium to light body to it, creamy and easy to drink. Overall, Turoni's beers are solid, not overly complex, yet usually not simple and this beer is a fine example of their work.

Has a clear pour with a reddish-orange color.

Almost no smell. Might have been some malty notes hiding somewhere (given the taste), but nothing stuck out.

The flavor is all malt, giving off plenty of sweetness. It's not obscene, but very sweet.

Almost creamy mouthfeel with a slight hop note.

Very easy to drink.

A-Reddish copper color. Nice white head. Very clear, and a nice lacing is left throughout.

S- Sweet malts, earthy hops.

T- Very smooth and earthy hop flavor. A flavor similar to nuts maybe. A nice sweet caramel backbone.

M- It's a little syrupy to me. But not terribly bad.

O- It's decent. A better offering from them

Pours a nice deep red with some nice head and decent lacing. Subdued, but slighlty sweet and malty, aroma, with a slight raisin scent. Nice deep malty flavor, if not very much else. It goes down quite smooth, if slightly thick. While my least favorite at Turonis, it was still good.
