On tap at HDG. Smells like vanilla andpopcorn. Not the best of starts. The taste is of unmilled malts. I like this beer especially the subtly of the use of the hop.

Draught @ Goodbar. Gold, thin white head. Nose is light butter, doughy malt, a hint of spring flowers & fruit. Flavor is wonderful raw malt (very clean), a hint of bublegummy fruit and a light summer breeze of hops. More of that dough/malt in the finish. Awesome!

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2008
On tap where I work. Crystal clear gold pour. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and grains. More of the same on palate with a smooth, buttery flavor that actually works well here with the wheaty kind of flavor. Hoppy and balanced. Alcohol undetectable. Dry finish that cleans up well. An interesting ale.

NJBeerman013 (1043) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Tap at Brooklyn Brewery. Strong golden in color with a white lacy head. The aroma is very citrusy with a big hoppyness. There is a big hop character to the flavor with a strong bite. It is a really good example of a strong ale in my opinion.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2007
On tap at Tylerís, Durham. A nice surprise, this one. Poured into a snifter, itís a lovely golden color with moderate carbonation. A bright floral aroma is immediately apparent, and this is borne out in the tasting, with a real hop vibrancy and a quirky but winning finish of tropical fruits and a tad of butter. Combines the perky qualities of a fine pilsner with the flavor of a nice Belgian blonde. English strong ale? Why not?!

draft- definite sweetness and ester quality that my wife really enjoyed. Nice full mouthfeel. A smooth drinking strong ale, that is worth looking into.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2007
The aroma was earthy with a mdoerate level of caramel and a bit of diacetyl. Bright hop aroma coupled to a bit of spice. The beer arrived clear golden with a white frothy tall head which laced the glass. The flavor contained an earthy nature with some caramel character and a decent level of bittering with some EKG hop flavor. The finish was dry with a lasting mineral flavor into the aftertaste. The body was medium-full with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy texture on the palate. The alcohol level in this beer was never apparent. A nice beer but just a bit boring. Sniffer at Tylerís.

pint @ Tylerís Durham. Good aroma, sweet. Doughy, cheese danish, butter, minor grass streak. Clean golden orange color, good head & lacing. Sweet bitter flavor, More sweet than bitter. Lite body, thin creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Huh liked this more than I was expecting, Very enjoyable.

egajdzis (5266) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2007
[Draft @ Barcade] Poured a hazy golden amber color with a small white head, that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, dough, diactyl, caramel and a bit of citrus. Taste was on the sweeter side, buttery popcorn, toffee malts, light dough, and woody hops. Iím assuming the butteriness was intentional, but I thought it left this overall sticky.
