12oz bottle, pours a deep, ruby red, almost brown, topped with a thin, beige head. Sweet, malty nose, with caramel, brown sugar, toasty grain, faint peat, earthy, a little metallic. Tastes are malty and very sweet with caramel, earth, toasted grain, a little medicinal on the finish. Somewhat watery mouth-feel, but the carbonation helps it feel a bit fuller. I don't know, this wasn't bad, but it was very sweet and something about it was keeping me from wanting to finish it. One was plenty for me. I'll just call it average.

Pours a nice ruby hue, with little carbonation. As it is, no lace, either. Low on presentation.

Nose is malty sweet, with hints of caramel and toffee.

Taste is malty, too, with more of the toffee and caramel taking precedence. A touch of citrus hops comes in to round off the finish. A solid, if unremarkably average brew here.

Got this on tap at Farmhouse in Chicago. Pour: was red-brown with slight head. Smell: malted and maybe a little fruity (figs or apricots? Not sure). Taste: smooth and malted. Lots of caramel and a little vanilla with a hint of nuts and fruit. Feel: thicker then expected for low alcohol content. Finish: is weird and not happy, not bad overall, but not good on the finish.

Had this on tap at Brothers in South Bend. The appearance is amber but watery. It looks a bit like tea. The aroma has a light caramel to it. The mouthfeel is watery and the taste is more like a mass produced light amber than a micro brew. I am very dissappointed overall.
