3.43/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Consumed 12/31/2009- from notes.

A buddy and fellow BA 46and2 brought a quarter keg of this to our New Years Eve party as a suprise.

Served in a pint glass.

A- A hazy burnt orange topped off with a fluffy two finger off white head that hung around for a while. Pretty good lacing.

S- Pretty muted, a little sweet and a little grassy.

T- Some roasty caramel sweetness, a little grassy and a little spicy bite at the finish that suprised me.

M- Medium bodied, pretty smooth. Not too carbinated and crisp.

D- I could see this being a good summer session brew. It went over great with the macro crowd that was at the party.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Served on-tap at Barcade in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a clear orangish amber in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some copper highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a thinf film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel and toffee malt sweetness with some lighter notes of toasted malts and hints of light fruit (apple).

T: Overall a fairly sweet malty brew with moderate notes of toasted, caramel, and toffee notes. Very light amounts of earthy and spicy hop bitterness in the finish that fades rather quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy with some hints of smoothness.

O: Easy to drink but nothing really stands out about this beer - fairly sweet and malty. Not likely to be one that I would grab again.
