650ml bomber poured into pint glass 15/6/11

A golden in color with plenty of bubbles feeding a long lasting finger of foam that covers the side of my glass with unorganized lace

S loads of butterscotch and not much else, some fruity hops perhaps

T some earthy flavors and more toffee then butterscotch with some soggy cornflakes

M a bigger body then I expected from the color, gets quite creamy after a second in your mouth perhaps a highlight for this brew

O decent beer but needs just a little something to set itself apart

The bitter these guys make didn't look or feel that great but it tasted and smelled awesome, this one looks and feels great but is lacking in smell and taste. No reason not to try this one its a respectable brew, thanks cjbmcdon for shipping this one out my way

Bottle shared by jerc on RB, 500ml into a tulip.

Golden yellow (is this an altbier?), with a white head and light retention. No lacing. Nose of sweet and grainy malts, almost like a golden ale in a sense. Some cracker and light citrus (what is this?). Taste has more grainy and crackery malt notes, light tartness (perhaps even some lemon flavour). Mild hopping. Medium light body, medium carbonation. Not an altbier like I've ever had, but certainly not a bad beer in general.

A- A heavy, dense orange color. Almost no head but managed to have really good lacing upon consumption. The smallest of carbonationbubbles are barely noticeable.

S- Sweet malts have toffee notes. Heavily dominated by this as not much else is coming through.

T- A more complex beer than I was anticipating. The manliness is first but soon changeover to some bitter European hops and a touch of lager/Pilsener taste that also comes in euro beers.

M- A moist, buttery beer that is oh so easy to drink. Light body and lightly carbonated. Very smooth.

O- This is my first attempt at this brewery and I have another style in the fridge. I am now looking forward to try others and hopefully they can be just as good. If you have a chance to buy a couple from this expanding brand, you really should give them a shot.
