Gentle hiss as the cap comes off, pouring a semi-hazy and dull glowing copper color. Icy, graying head. Aroma has honeyed hops, sugary pecans, sweet nectar, some spruce, orange sprits, caramel and campfires. Bright and dry flavor. Hops bitter in their intention with scant sweetening for support. It’s as if carbonated orange seltzer water is overriding all other characteristics. Sandpaper palate met by hops and carbonation centered points of origin. Finishes like steel, caramel and subdued hop pellets. Thanks for the bottle, Thaichile.

Had this beer in bottle and on tap at Blackburn’s on Gloucester several times. I feel that this is more of an amber, gold-red color. Delicious, somewhat fruity flavor. Hope to see more beers from Cape Ann Brewing.

Pours deep amber with a big off white head that fades fast. Malty, earthy aroma. Sharp somewhat spicy taste, nice maltiness. Some toffee, good mouthfeel. Well made.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle. Dark reddish gold with a thick white head that left some lacing. Nose: light floral hops, caramel malt and a touch of molasses. Medium to thin bodied. Flavor has notes of citrus and pine over a sweet vanilla-toffee background.

rich color. refreshing and great tasting when extremely cold. Very Hoppy, small head, medium to full body. A bit harsh at first, but very drinkable after the 1st few sips.

This was beer. It wasn’t great. It wasn’t bad, either. Just an okay beer in all respects: color was okay, head was okay, aftertaste was a little metallic, aroma was okay, hopped some, sweet some.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2005
A respectable vienna - strawberry blonde in color, herbal aroma with a touch of sweetness - quite hoppy, even for the style - a mild grainy maltiness - finishes clean

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2005
Draft at Spring Brewtopia 2005... Sparkling clear, deep gold lager with a creamy, off-white head. Decent retention and excellent, interesting lacework. Foral nose with just a hint of caramel. Perfectly balanced flavor... nice, sweet maltiness countered by the perfect amount of hops. A little citrus fruit and toffee as well. Light-bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.
