Pours a dark golden color. Aroma consists of malts, hops, and caramel. Taste is pretty much the same with a little citrus in the back end. Leaves a hop aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Dirty golden, cloudy, large rocky off-white head, spots of lacing.   Overriped fruits on the nose, also slight cardboard.   Past its prime?   Lets see... Malt forward, hops are hidden if at all, aged fruit, slight whole wheat like breadiness, with faded caramel.   Hmmm, not bad, but a little flat.   I bet this would have been sharper about 6 months ago.   As is not too bad, but I think over the hill a bit.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Dull caramel and citrus linger.   Tasty, even if a little expired, or at least seems to be.

Draft at Ten Tables in JP. Pours a rustic orange color with a small foamy off white head. Nose is lightly nutty with a light coriander spice and a hint of sweet caramel malt. Palate is full and smooth. Flavors of light spicy autumnal notes with a nice sweet malt in the finish and hints of caramel and toffee.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A cloudy toffee-brown pub ale. Large rocky head. Thick lace sticks to the glass. Color turns light yellow at the edges.
The smell is the sweet biscuity aroma of a pub ale. A mild, flowery hop as well. The malt is dry and bready. Very very nice.
The malt flavor dominates the taste, like a slightly sweet amber. The roasted qualities of the malt make the sweetness work. Hops are mild and estery. Somewhere between an amber and a brown, although slightly more of an amber flavor.
The feel is medium bodied; a nice milky, creamy thickness on the way down. It’s a really easy drinking beer with goo dbody and balanced roasted/sweet flavors. Top notch.

In Northfield, MA. Dark brownish head with healthy fizzy head. Fruity, citrus nose. Some fruits in the taste. Gets dry and malty in the finish. Quite peculiar, really. A bit fizzy in the mouthfeel, with a sweet and malty finish. Not sure about this one. Don’t want to seem weird, but subsequent sips remind me very much of sushi...

Muddy light brown color with a slightly off-white head. Weak aroma of malts... barely noticeable at least for me. Slightly fruity taste. Kind of dry feeling overall. Very minimal hops. Moderate taste of malts through and through.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the 1 pt. 6 fl. oz bottle most likely brewed just a few weeks prior to my tasting in Feb. ’09. The pour was a reddish-amber tone with an adequate supply of foamy beige head that sticks around and provides a little lacing action. The aroma is floral with a note of hops. Medum mouthfeel. The hops are more evident in the taste than they are in the aroma and there is a sweet and bitter end to the flavor. A fine brew for those chilly winter evenings.
