Bottle. Pours a clear, light copper color with a slight light tan head. Very sweet aroma that reminds me oddly enough of candi corn and marshmellow. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet upfront with notes of fruit, caramel, and the aforementioned candi corn. From there it draws out with a slight bitter metallic ending. Drinks fairly easy. Some brown sugar notes as well. Decent but not stellar.

Thanks to MrVonzipper for the opportunity to look at this beers AWESOME label

Look: Deep orange/copper color with a 1/4 inch head and ok retention

Smell: Very muted notes of caramel and toffee

Taste: Caramel malt brown sugar and toffee not alot going on here

Mouthfeel: Silky smoooth low carbonation and a medium body

Overall: The best part of this beer besides the label is the mouthfeel and thats not what I'm looking for in a beer

A: Pours a clear copper with two fingers of white head that vanishes almost completely with no lacing.

S: Some orange citrus notes along with lots of caramel and Munich malt aromas. There are some slight bubblegum aromas as well.

T: Similar to the aroma, lots of caramel and Munich malt flavors with a touch of citrus. The finish is of sweet breads. There are some bubblegum notes here as well.

M: Medium-light body with lowish carbonation, this beer could use a bit more carbonation to balance the sweetness.

O: Not a bad beer, but it needs more carbonation and a bit more of a hop presence to balance the malty sweetness.

Smell: There is a malty, toasted aroma.

Taste: It has a toast malt flavor with grass and hay compliments.

Feel: Is is medium light bodied in feel with moderate hop bitterness on the palate.

Overall: It is a malt lager with a clean character and simple, but effective flavoring.

Clear deep orange color with a small off-white head on top. Clean, sweet toasted malt aroma...fresh grain, floral notes, and some toffee. Flavor is sweet through the middle - probably a bit too sweet. Rich toasted malt, caramel, subtle spicy/earthy hops. Clean and medium bodied. I liked where this was going, but the sweetness kills the drinkability.
