This bottled brew poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized of unnoted length white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and caramel brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of sweet malty bready . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a palate and a very mild bock aftertaste. Its flavor contained sweet malt mild cherry notes. Strange.

This is a better than average amber ale. I liked it, it is a little heavy.

12 oz bottle. Poured a dark copper, thin off-white head, torrents of rising carbonation. Strong malty nose with perfumy hops in the background. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a lightly bitter finish. Very well balanced. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very drinkable nicely balanced Alt. Good intro beer to those new to the sport.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2006 On tap. Decided to finally give it a try, and I was glad I did. Enjoyed from first sip to the end of my second 25oz mug. Don’t know why I waited so long to give it a try. Very smooth flavor, sweet, but not overly so. More malty than hoppy, but that was a good thing. Great beer.

(bottle) Deep amber color. Head fades immediately. Caramel malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malt with caramel, some nuttiness. A bit lacking in hops for the finish.

12oz Bottle from Fordest. Pours a ruby amber color with minimal fizzy head. Nose is almost vacant, some light caramel notes here and there. Taste is very nice though. A great malt feeling, rich nuttiness, and some sweet caramel, rounded out with a nice bitter finish.

I really like this beer, but the first time I had it was during a vacation in Alaska, so my perception may be slightly skewed. Pours a deep amber, flavor is sweet malts, finish is slightly bitter and dry. A very good session beer
