The beer pours light brown and clear with a foamy off white head that fades fairly quickly. The aroma starts out with a lot of malt, grainy with some caramel and a bit of earthy hops. It is light to medium bodied with a lot of malt flavor for a pale ale, although it is only 5.5% abv. A bit of toasted malt and some light fruit come out on the palate. More earthy, spicy hops on the finish, along with a faint bitterness.

deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a slight gold hue with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of citrus and grapefruit with a backing sweet grain and biscuit. Flavor is a bit more thin and has a lot less hop profile with some sweet grains and a hint of grapefruit coming out in the finish.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Bottle. Murky body with hues of orange and medium brown. Appetizing fruit salad aroma dominated by melon and pink grapefruit. Excellent gritty/chalky mouthfeel. Generous doses of hops and rich malt with a flavour profile very similar to that of the aroma. Quality stuff.

bhensonb (10792) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a transient foamy off-white head. Light slightly roast caramel aroma. Near med body. Flavor is mostly light roast caramel, but it is astringent. Not all that bitter though. Just a light touch of fruity hop. Course astringent and bitter confuse me a little. Definitely dry finish. Other than the mouth shrinking there’s not a lot to write home about. Drinks well tho.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. No other information is available on the label. Appearance: The body has a slightly hazy look with a good amber color and a creamy off white head. The two finger head slowly settles as I drink and makes some spotty lacing on the glass. Smell: It has a nice blend of bready maltiness with a pleasant butterfinger like caramel/toffee sweetness and citrus/grassy hops. Taste/Palate: It starts with a good base of bready malt and very light toasted grain. This is balanced buy mildly bitter hops that add a touch of citrus and grassy flavor to the overall character. It finishes with a mild bitter fade on a smooth yet well carbonated medium body. Notes: It’s good in the bottle but much better and with a brighter hop character on tap.

Pours orange-red with large head that quickly recedes. Aroma is citrus hops and an odd maltiness that’s very off-putting. Taste is bitter hops and a super strange malt again. Or maybe it’s a yeast thing. I’m not sure but it was STRANGE. Palate is severe carbonation and a sedementary chewiness. Maybe I got a bad batch. Bad.

Shared growler. Aroma is diacetyl, caramel malt. The flavor is similar, butter, caramel, with a strange metal taste. Appearance is amber, white head. Metal, earthy hops on finish. Ok

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Pitcher at a bar/restaurant in Cooperstown. Pours an amber color with a small off white head. A decent balance b/w the malts and hops. A slight carmalized flavor. Medium bodied. Finished easy enough. Good enough for predrinking festivities before entering theHall.

Old Slugger is a hazy, very lively amber ale with a huge, rocky, off white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. There’s not much aroma. I get a slight whiff of leafy hop pellets and caramelly sweetness. It’s light bodied and bubbly. The finish is dry and pretty clean. There’s not much flavor-- a light toastiness and a light spicy bitterness at the finish. It’s very light drinking; not too interesting but quite refreshing. It’s a quaffer... or a slugger.
