The nose is fairly sweet, with some toffe notes. The color is nice, would call this a "red ale" This beer certainly sweet, and a slight Overall not bad, but forgettable. Thanks to ben4321 for sharing.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby amber body under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is toasty and sweet with a bit of a crystal malt iced tea like note. Minimal to no hops, just a malt bomb here. The flavor is pretty sweet with lots of crystal malt. Toasty and a bit husky as well. Long lingering sweet finish. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation and heavy on the tongue. This is pretty basic stuff, rather nondescript other than lots of sweetness.

Draft at tap room. Red and malty. Looks beautiful. Taste was a little lacking. Kind of disappointed.

Reddish pour. Aromas of malts and caramel. Starts of mild hoppy and finishes malty. Decent overall. Nice mouthful.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Pours a nice amber color with an off white head leaving a bit of lacing. Aromas of citrus and malt. Nice balanced flavor across the whole beer woth notes of hops in the front and the malt in the back.

The aroma is nutty, toasted malt, strong caramel. The appearance is red/amber, off-white head. The flavor is just like the aroma. The finish is sweet, nuts, pine hops. Medium in body. Not bad, not remarkable.

ben4321 (3942) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/14/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly caramel, with some toasted malts, and light floral hops
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-orange color with an off-white head and fizzy lace
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, fairly malty/caramel, with a light hop bitterness in the finish
Palate: The body is medium, it feels a little creamy, it has an average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Iím rater # 11 of this one. As for the beer, it is solid, not great, but not bad. Those looking for a top of "style" (yes, I know, this is a fake style) offering may be disappointed, but those looking for a decent beer surely will not. Solid job here by Cortland.

An easy drinking beer and high alcohol despite is smoothness. This one youíll definitely want to keep in your fridge vault. Malty smooth and sweetness overtakes this beer with just enough hops to keep you satisfied. Invite your friends over to try this they canít miss out on this beast.

AKThunder (166) - New York, USA - AUG 26, 2012
A very good Ale with a strong presence of carmel. Dark amber appearance, the taste is smooth, and the palate is a medium to full body.

blipp (6125) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle. Hazy amber with an off white head. Toasted and sweet caramel malts, floral hops, lighter earthy notes, and a hint of fruity sweetness. Not bad.
