fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Nice reddish/copper color. A well-balanced english style ale. Some biscuit and bready malts. Enough hops for a little kick, but overall it doesn’t leave a strong impression.

halfonit (1321) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Picked this up at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a thick, slightly off white head. A minute later it’s gone leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, harvest, and cocoa. Medium bodied. Flavor is of malts, chocolate, caramel, dry hops, and some earthiness. Leaves a roasted, burnt, malt chocolate finish. Meh.

tfontana (665) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Taster pour at Craft Beer Race New Haven. Appearance is hazy light brown (like a cider) with ring of head, mild lacing and sparkle. Aroma is bready malt. Taste is malt dominant biscuit/cracker with some caramel. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with average texture, soft carbonation and finish like taste. Overall, not bad by any means but pretty pedestrian.

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, 6/12/15

Aroma: The aroma is fairly malty, some earthy and bready notes, and a little citrus as well
Appearance: It pours a cloudy copper color with a frothy beige head and some average lace
Flavor: It tastes similar, fairly balanced overall, not too sweet, not too bitter, just balanced
Palate: It is medium bodied, with a decent mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a light dryness
Overall Impression: Solid enough beer. It has some flavor and a decent amount body, but overall, it just doesn’t quite get there for me. Decent enough, but not my favorite.

PhillyCraft (5609) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle shared by Tom, pours copper golden with small to medium white head. Notes of English malt, crisp hops, and bread. Balanced and Sessionable as far as malt-forward brews go.

kenter2000 (58) - , Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2014
As good as it is to be with family on a sunday afternoon I can’t claim it improves the taste of this beer. It’s a fine tasting beer. One I would not seek out. Crisp, slightly malty, vaguely hoppy, sharp and a little harsh on the tongue.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle shared by Matt on man night. Aroma is nice and malty with some bread crust, apple core, and slight floral. Pours amber and a little on the flat side with small white lacing. Taste follows suit with agave nectar, bread crust, and apple peel. Very nice malty and warm mouthfeel throughout. Very tasty old ale. Would have this again gladly.
