bhensonb (10978) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle from a local Grocery Outlet store. Pours copper with not much white head. Aromas of lightly roasted malt and some fruity/citrus hop. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Flavor is light roast caramel, and a fair amount of spice - like grassy/citrus hop. Nicely bitter. Spicey enough to make it enjoyable. Finishes with a touch of light fruit. Better than a number of Lion Brewery productions.

BMan1113VR (7855) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a small fading white head over a clear golden body. Aroma is grassy, grainy and bland. Perhaps some rotten meat. Taste is sweet, cloying with pear. Really a mess. Light bubbled drain pour.

marcus (6441) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
This copper ale poured with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty roasted malt flavor with a bit of carbonation and hop bitterness. A mediocre pale ale, but it’s drinkable.

drowland (5998) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011
12/25/11. Merry Christmas! 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Clear light copper pour with a small khaki head that fades to nothing and doesn’t lace at all. Light aroma with a touch of citrus, mostly lemon peel. Gross flavor of lemon peel, apples, butter, butterscotch, and burnt caramel. This is a disaster.
