Tap @ the pub. Clear copper color with an almost white head. Nutty malt with a light citrus make up the aroma. Malty flavor with some toasty notes and a mild citrus hop. Dry bitter finish.

LilBeerDoctor (3409) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2008
On tap at City Steam. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light fruits. Flavor of light pale malts, slight wheat, and a tinge of flowery and grassy hops. Ok, but boring.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Dark orange, creamy white head. EPA nose of black iced tea that warms to citric notes and hints of toffee brittle. Flavor cuts to the chase with a heavier dried fruit tone thats balanced on touches of caramel. Nicely bittered from start to finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, soft bittersweet finish. Sessionable and well done. This and thier IPA rule the roost here...

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Tap at the brewpub. The waitress said that this was their best brew. Thatís not a good sign. Itís also not a good sign (and this may only be my opinion) when a brewpub sells BMC. Bitter! And not in a good way. There was something funky (in both the aroma and mouthfeel) about this that just wasnít very good. Very dry and bitter to finish. Not very enjoyable.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Draught at brewery with Clarkvv 8/11/05: Mostly clear medium dark amber with a small eggshell colored head that doesnít last too long. The aroma is grains, earthy/floral hops, toffee, and buttery yeast. Taste is caramel, toffee, earthy/grassy hops, a hint of citrus hops, grains, and a tiny hint of diacetyl. Light-medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Iím pretty certain this was listed as an "Amber ale" at the bar.
