Reddish brown in color. Clear in appearance. 2012 is malty, smooth and complex. Slightly oxidized but still delicious. Caramel. People at the #election2016 party liked the 2012 more.

A solid beer if you're trying to amp up the lager style with hops. Great aroma. If this was a sixer, I could really see myself enjoying va couple of these. Very drinkable.

22oz bottle: this one pours a clear, dark amber color. There was a small light tan head that didn’t linger very long. Interesting nose. Molasses, a touch boozy, bready, toasted malts and some faint coffee and roasted malts. The taste is good, and a little interesting. Some coffee, almost a slight burnt grain taste, some hoppiness, good caramel body in the background. Interesting.

22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours an opaque, rust-toned body with a ill-formed, short-lived, just off-white head. No real lace accumulation.

Smell: Sweet-scented, well-toasted, bready, and simply crackling with cooked brown sugar. Wafting, stinging alcohol all the while. Hoppy, poppy notes of pine, pithy citrus peels, and shredded mint leaf.

Taste: Toasted bread, toasted nuts, and big, sweet gulp of brown sugar linking to a seer of alcohol. Bold crystal malt quality. It's plenty sweet and sugary, but, there's alot of resiny bitterness, hot alcohol, citric orange pinches to balance it out. Even a sliver of mint. Moderate bitterness. Sugary, spicy, bitter, and a bit boozy on the bitter, heated finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It'll do.
