bottle, pours a nice ruby amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma is sweet and slightly sour biscuit malt and lots of dry hop character. Flavor is a great balance of bread, rye, and doughy malts, with a nice punch of hops that complement the malt but don’t overpower. The malt character lingers while the hops mildly dry the tongue. Nice beer.

22oz bomber vitalized by the rain. Taste is border line non fullfilling. Like an amped up ale but too poser like to sink in the taste of excellence. Pours solid tan brown sade with nothing to see through. Goes down like an ice cube down a wet slide, but has a slinky resistance to the aftertaste that keeps you coming back. The Berkshires are beautiful.

Pours an autumnal blood orange into a shaker. Off-white head quickly recedes to sicken surface. Mild caramel aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning crisp and dry in the lasting citrus finish.

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.

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.
