Pale brownish amber with a finger of beige head. Malty on the nose, biscuit, cookie, slight brow sugar. The taste is subtle, biscuit, caramel. Itís like it wants to be an American Brown ale, but just not there. Quaffable in a session, but thatís about it.

I have an issue with this beer...it's a triple. A golden colored Carmel triple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROBC3366 (359) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sample at Black Bear Saloon in BDL. The beer pours a clear amber color with a thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Grainy malt and hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, hops and caramel. The finish is sweet with a bready malt aftertaste.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Butterscotch and caramel aromas. Sour butterscotch and toffee front to back. Lasting sour earth finish. Yuk.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body with a small fizzy beige head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is just loads of crystal malty with a hefty huskiness and a brewed-tea like note. Minimal to no hops, and some burnt caramel as well. The flavor is overly husky and grainy with too much sweetness and minimal to no hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Canít say that I care for this one at all.

On tap at the source. Comes to the table a clear amber color with a small head but a decent amount of lace. Smells of light caramel and brown sugar with a earthy spicy hop to provide some balance. The flavor is earth and spicy hop with a hint of skunk and a solid caramel malty backbone. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet mouthfeel. Nice approachable easy drinking ale.

On tap at Black Bear Saloon, Nice amber body with medium head. Nose is toasty malts, nuts, sugar and some hops. Floral notes. More hoppier in the finish. Enjoyable.
