COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full flavor without going for the knockout, this sessionable amber-hued brew matches the fire in the bull’s eyes. Everyone from the enthusiast to the casual drinker can spar with this one all day!

Dorwart (2394) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Decent sized off white head of small bubbles with very good carbonation. Dusty malt aroma with some spiced wafers, roasted grains and a bit of tart fruit. Color is a dark brown with good clarity. Metallic flavor upfront then morphs into a tart and acidic lager with a bit if bready dough. Brew seems a bit off to me. Bit of malt a sourness are not a great combo. Finishes tart and dry.

Tonkun (916) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Amber pour with a finger of off white head caramel, soda, nuts. Light body. Sweet but simple one dimensional finish. I am not a fan of this beer

jtclockwork (8964) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber brown. Off white head. Nose and taste of grass, burnt toast, cracker malt, light metal and toasted nuts. Lighter bodied.

Ed5388 (2236) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours amber with a huge foamy tan head. Aroma of light citrus and nothing else. Taste is watered down light citrus and grain.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Draft. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Grainy and lightly sweet malts, straw, and low bitterness. Not bad.

HighlanderOne (1024) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Poured from bottle. Interesting aroma of malt, molasses, traces of cocoa and coffee. Mahogany with thin tan head. I taste caramel malt, nut, banana, earthy hops and a touch of marshmallow. Clean, brisk feel. Well done. I plan to support this local brewery in the future.

mike67 (833) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with thin, short-lived white head. Aroma is of grassy hops, barnyard and bread crust. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of grain, herbal hops, bready malt and hint of honey. Finish is long and astringent. This brew is way overpriced.

dogfishho (599) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Plain bready biscuity malts with little complexity. Not much of a hop profile. Fair overall flavor profile. Meh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keepersj12 (2761) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2013
Pours amber with a white head. Not much going on in the aroma. A bit of malt and caramel. The flavor was pretty bland as well.
