Pours orange. Has that nice malt hoppiness to it that you’d get from a Rogue beer. Rated 2/26/05

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good complex beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear garnet tinged amber with a thin white head. A bit of plum and sweet malt on the nose, toast, caramel. Medium bodied, malty and toasty. Not a ton going on but I don’t think there’s supposed to be. Easy drinking, inoffensive. Unremarkable in any great or terrible ways, just a middle of the road easy drinking beer. Tasty enough.

22 oz. bottle from trade. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma has moderately sweet caramel malt, citrus hops, grass, touches of ripe fruits and is a bit earthy. The flavor is similar with caramel malts, bread, slight ripe fruits, citrus and bittering hops, wheat grass, with just a hint of dust. This wasn’t bad, it just didn’t really work for me. I also found it interesting that the description said it was made to sustain you during the long New England winter and I thought it was more of a late summer beer. This was not big enough in flavor or mouthfeel to satisfy during the winter.
