4.13/5 rDev +22.2%
The appearance of this beer is a classic red amber color. My beer poured with no head or lacing at all...(glass not as clean as it should be?)
The smell is very nice. A well balanced, toasted malt scent that dominated the brew. It is followed by a mix of subtle spices and a hint of hops, but nothing bitter.
Taste is well balanced between the sweet, toasted malt, the spices and the hops which create a soft, easy to drink brew.
The mouthfeel is good up front but as the drink continues the carbonation takes over and is too heavy. Too much for me.
Overall the beer has a good smell and taste but still needs some refining in order to get the wild aspects in check or to run with them completely...still better than most. Above average brew.

first beer from these guys and i am not unhappy with it. on tap at mr. goodbar in buffalo. the pour is clear and coppery, lighter than an amber, but not quite a pale ale in looks. not much head either. the aroma is a little metallic, brassy or something, minerally, but with a nice dose of american amber malts and buttery toast. the flavor is rather balanced, with some bittering hops complimenthaning the aromatic profile. i find just a little more sweetness than i like in an amber, but it appears to be from so well roasted english caramel malt, so i cant complain. the feel is a tad flat for me, a few more bubbles might make this beer really pop off. but the body is working at a nice medium clip, and it doesnt change much as it warms up. i could session on this for awhile. good to see the buffalo beer scene improving so dramatically, this is a more than tolerable amber ale brewed for a good cause. i can get behind that and put a few pints back every not and again.

Poured into a standard pint a clear amber with a 1/2 finger white head that held for awhile.Aromas seemed to be of a lager yeast with mild fruity notes,there seemed to be a tinge of grain and iron in there.Again lighter lager-like flavors with its grainy notes,a little dryer than what you expect for the style.A Vienna style beer?Like a Vienna lager?I'ts pretty average but Iam interested in what this really is...kinda.

A: Pours a clear dark golden color. Very thick off white head, dissipates very slowly.
S: very faint toasted grains, absolutely nothing else...fail
T : Starts light, watery. A super sweet bread and corn syrup flavor. no hops at all. Pretty damn terrible really. Way way too sweet with nothing else there. Finishes skunky and smooth.
M : medium bodied despite the early wateryness. Carbonation is all right, carries the flavor nicely.
Way too sweet. No depth or character or anything in this beer. Fake sugar taste and no aroma. No thanks, never again
