Bottle as one of many generous extras from Odeed. Thanks man!
Pours a reddish cloudy color. Smell is mild caramel malt and light tame hops. Taste is mild as well, with faint hop flavor coming through, but I found this to be lackluster flavorwise. Could be in part to palate fatigue, but still wasn't overly flavorful. No flaws stuck out, however, and it was an easy drinker.

Will revisit, as I believe I got a pour right after a line cleaning at the brewery. Had a sanitizer like flavor and flatness to it that was off putting.

Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, biscuit, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and subdued herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is much more on the malty side of things all around.

Pours a dark, slightly hazy amber with a sizable off-white head that recedes very slowly to a thin, creamy cap and a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet with caramel malts dominating with a slightly roasted character to it. There is also a slightly grassy hop aroma.

The taste is more earthy with some grassy hops and a light sweet caramel malt backbone. The finish is bitter with a combination of hops and toasted grains.

The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and borders on watery with the flavors seemingly muted.

This is a fair amber that's pretty drinkable but doesn't have much depth to it. Not bad.

Bottle brought back from the brewery a little over a month ago. Dark ruby in color, with a weak off white head made of big and little bubbles. It comes across as pretty toasty and nutty. It wasn't bad, but I don't think it really did anything that particularly well.
