12oz brown bottle from Florian’s. Translucent amber body with a half inch of off-white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Caramel malt characterizes the aroma with a slight hop presence, but slightly weaker than expected. Full-flavored though, with a roasty sweet caramel malt dominating the flavor with no more than a suggestion of hop, just enough to balance the malt. A nice balance to the flavor makes it pleasant and drinkable. Medium in body. A really nice brew. Somewhat simple, but pleasant, tasty, and satisfying. I’ll definitely be getting this one again.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
Tap at Barcade. Amber beer with a very creamy white head. Lovely aroma with lots of flowery/spicy noble hop aroma over a soft earthy malt base. A hint of wheaty spice as well. Flavours are similar, with nothing earthshattering, but an very tasty balance of spicy hops and a dry finish that make you craze another mouthful. The definition of quaffability. Great session beer.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber with a foamy head that became uneven, eventually breaking down to what looked like floating bits of pond scum. Mostly malty aroma with some grassy and red apple peel notes. Flavor of grainy and bready malt, with some fruity tartness and slightly bitter hop finish. A bit of a grassy/leafy aftertaste. Light to medium palate. Nothing exceptional. A relatively non-offensive session brew.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a hazy orange with minimal ivory bubbles around the edges of the glass. Aroma is of fruit, hops, and rich malt. Taste is crisp, with a bitter bite that ends with sweet malt and fruit notes.

Draft. Burnt copper color with a slight wisp of a head. Malty cereal-like aroma with some sulfur notes. Toasted malt flavor with some fruit notes.

MaBeer1972 (1318) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Bottled. The 6 pack I got was all over-carbonated. Appears to be bottled-conditioned. After loosing a couple of bottles to spontaneous overflow, letting them settle, I managed to try it. Light-bodied amber color - lacy head. Aroma of grass. Hoppy bite flavor. Herbal. Sticky finish. Not too good.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Draft at Barcade. Pours amber with very little head. Spicy aroma & flavor. Earthy malt character with a touch of caramel, with a later nutty dryness and spicyness. Simple.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
Draught. Not too bad, but i guess it was a little unexciting. Some light caramelly sweetness and then a dry-ish, mildly bitter hoppy finish. Quite easy to drink, but not something i would search out.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle - Poured a copper-colored amber in color with a small whitish head. Aroma was not strong, but did remind me of caramel malts and some faint hoppiness. Flavor is stronger of the hops than the aroma, but the flavor is still not that strong. Finishes with a nice hoppy bitterness.
