12 oz. bottle thanks to Waterbury. Served at cellar temperature. Nice looking beer. ¼ thick head white head sitting on a mostly clear amber liquid. Nose is lightly fruity with a bit of toffee. Great taste of light molasses, toffee and a fruity hop. Not bitter at all. The finish is very clean and short. Hops do give a light spice in the flavor. This is not your standard amber / English pale. It is really a nice brew that you could have many in a session.

Tap @ Bradley Intl. Airport Sheraton: Malty aroma with a bit of spices. Musty flavor akin to a Scottish ale. Nothing really that special compared to some of the top rated Amber ales.

Bottle to taster (thanks tmoney99). Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin white lacing. Smells of hops and roasted malt. Tastes the same with an average mouthfeel. Tick tock.

Medium body with a smooth thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

jackl (4610) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep amber brown with a big orange-white head. The nose is soft caramel and nuts, light grass and strawberry. The taste is simple, plenty of caramel and more nuttiness. Malty. Lightly floral and a bit syrupy. Pretty easy to drink, active carbonation. Overall, a decent beer.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel malts with a little tin plus very light hops. Flavor the same, a little too sweet and something off with the malts. Average texture. A decent beer.

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle. Golden orange with a white head. Earthy, spicy, grassy, sweet toffee malts, and light toasted malts. Pretty well balanced, not quite as fresh as it could be, I bet, but still pretty good.

sherm1016 (1150) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On draft at the City Steam Brewery Cafe. Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, sweet cereal, a little fruity, plum maybe. Medium on the palate with a soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, toffee, a little bit of spicy hops, with a light bitter finish. Not bad.
