Very nice dark amber pour...medium white head. A nice balance of hops and malt with a good mouthfeel and a lingering bitterness. I would have this guy again.

(Tap) Pours an amber color with a full white head. Malty aroma, with caramel and some spice. Taste is somewhat similar, with a light roasted character. Nice hoppy bite in the aftertaste leaves a pleasant dry finish. Nice mouthfeel and great balance. I really enjoyed this one, and would consider it one of the better session beers I had on my trip.

freekyp (1483) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 Sporting a big fluffy off-white head atop its slightly dull coppery body, this brew drips of earthy hop aroma. Resiny notes encapsule more subtle tannic leathery notes. Malt character is also earthy reminiscent of a brown ale, but more flavor forward. Hops are balanced but burst through at the finish fading quickly into the background. Similar is taste to an altbier, this is a great unexpected entry.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells of some strawberries, hay, some earthiness. Tastes of citrus, nutty, some caramel, some peppery hints. Finish is lasting and sweet.

12 oz bottle **Summary** - An interesting beer that I picked up while on the East Coast I cracked this open to get things started one night. I almost wish I had picked up a full sixer as it would be have fine on its own. The style percentage is pretty accurate with this one - check it out if you like inexpensive quality beers. **Aroma / Appearance** - Thin chunks of white foam bobbed above an amber brown very fluid body. Rye toast and clean malts infused it with life but not aggressiveness. **Flavor / Palate** - Toast with a light spread of raspberry jam fills the mouth. Fading fast the only hint left after a few seconds is a wet bitterness on the back of the throat. Reminding me of sugar cookies this was a smooth easy going beer that would be perfect for almost any occasion.

decaturstevo (5002) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Golden pour with hints of red. Light head and lace. Nice caramel malt aroma. Sweet start with a hint of cherriness. A hint of hop bitter on the end. Thin and a bit watery, decent carbonation. Not bad more like an amber ale than at PL.

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2009
This brew has a dark golden color. Aroma is of sweeter malts, hops, and caramel. Taste is basically the same. Has a sweeter malt aftertaste. Not too bad.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Orange bodied with a cream head. Nice E.S.B-Browny ale style, though it may be a lager. toasty malt and muted hops. Effortlessly nuanced and unpretentious, but rather flavorful and workman-like.

Well... I sure pinned this style down in a single guess. Pretty spot on as far as amber lagers go. Bright orange colour with a full malty nose. Touch of corn. Sweet and smooth mouthfel with really nice fruity characteristic. Pretty easy session beer I picked up in Newark a couple months ago. Forgot I still had it!
