This has a real grainy nose with some caramel notes over faint citrus and mint. It pours a light chestnut tinted amber under a 1” off-white foam cap that produces significant lace. Offers a very creamy palate beginning with very faint chocolate, grain, and light caramel with very nicely balanced malt sugar flavors. It starts with a light sweetness growing to a mild caramel biscuit flavor that dries out on the finish. The hops have a mild citrus mint flavor with a light bitter touch. Good balance between the hops and the malt. The malt flavors linger nicely. Medium body and a little above on the carbonation.

Dark but clear amber, slightly off-white 1 inch head. Light lacing. Smell is odd, fruity, but attractive ... maybe a bit sour. Moderate carbonation. No sourness in the taste. Malty taste. Hops bitterness becomes more prominent as the beer warms. Body is OK... not too thin; in fact, a bit substantial for the style. This is a pleasant enough, refreshing beer, but not an outstanding beer.

Hazy copper brew with an off white foam that recedes to a thin skien. Lemony, black tea and grainy nose. More grain, lemon, some crackers and biscuits in the flavor. Comes off malty but also sour. Thin body. I'm not certain what style this is supposed to be ..Amber according to the label but its a bit on the lemony and sour side too. Confusing. It's more or less like a Lipton iced tea with added lemon flavors.

This beer pours a murky dark ruby color. The head is small even with a vigorous pour, and recedes within seconds into nothing. The aroma is of caramel malt, toffee, rock candy, and has a faint hint of floral hops. The taste is light to say the most. There isn't much going on...maybe a whiff of malt somewhere of in the distance. The mouthfeel is thin bodied with a watery texture, and carbonation that is a bit too aggressive. Overall, I find this beer's inoffensiveness offensive. I don't need a beer to punch me in the face with flavor-aroma, but its got to have something going on in it. This beer doesn't have that something.

Poured in a tall (22 oz) pilsner glass.

Next to no head and next to no odor- if anything, a VERY faint impression of raked leaves or someone with a good beer 10 feet away. The taste isn't bad, but is nothing special either - predominantly metallic and slightly bitter, only giving way to any impressions of malt, hops, or yeast after swallowing. This beer is borderline anorexic, with next to no body; it just leaves bony impressions after it's sat back up off of your furniture. The aftertaste is subtle and decent, with definite and noticeable minty cooling sensation.

This would be alright on tap with a cheap burger, but for something coming out of a bomber, I guess I was expecting a heck of a lot more. I'll probably order it again someday if I see it in a local grill or tavern, but I'll stick with something bolder for my fridge.
