Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Pours brown with a white head. Smells tealike with some nice hoppy notes. Tastes lightly hoppy with more tea qualities and a peppery finish.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Tap at the brewpub. The waitress said that this was their best brew. That’s not a good sign. It’s 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 wasn’t very good. Very dry and bitter to finish. Not very enjoyable.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Draught at brewery with Clarkvv 8/11/05: Mostly clear medium dark amber with a small eggshell colored head that doesn’t 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. I’m pretty certain this was listed as an "Amber ale" at the bar.

I believe they now consider this an "Amber" as the sign on the wall said "Naughty Nurse Amber Ale" as opposed to "Naughty Nurse Pale Ale" like it used to be...3 oz sampler. Slightly sweet, sour funky nose...weird aroma. Transparent copper color with off-white head. Caramelly start, turning roasty and dominated by malts. Hops are vitrually undetectable. Like I said, this is reminiscent of an Amber.

Cottrell (72) - Connecticut, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours a dark amber, with a finger of foam. Aroma is sweet grain, and mild and lightly citric hops. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, and uninteresting. Flavor starts with grainy sweetness and light caramel, then turns mildly bitter, with a pleasing and subtle hop finish. Definitely drinkable, but really nothing to get too excited about. A pretty standard flagship offering.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Mild dark malts and flowery hops in the nose. Clear copper coloured with initially large, white, fully-diminishing head. Mild citrusy hops and some caramel malt sweetness. Some lactic character. Very watery body. On tap at the brewpub with DYCSoccer17, MartinT and Rastacouere.

MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
That lactic character again mesmerizes the light hoppiness into hiding...Uninteresting low carbonation for the style makes the absence of hops even more noticeable...Caramel filaments try to give it some oomph but fail miserably...Maybe I visited on a very bad day?...

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Clear dark amber pour with minimal head. Aroma of pipe tobacco, very malty...little hop noticable. Sweet taste, vanilla noticable to start, some hop to finish. Drinkable, yet something really missing here -

Aurelius (4355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Muted light citrus, floral and sweet toffee aroma. Honey gold. Well-brewed hops, layed on in moderate amount. Fairly dry. Decent medium mouth and a finish which doesn't linger. A good complement for their food, which is good. Some starchiness.
