Thin head but quickly diminishing. Nice aroma with light hops and a bit of citrus (orange). Flavor is malty and sort of dry. Golden orange in color. Nice bitterness shows up at the finish with a nice hops finish and aftertaste. A decent amber ale.

Mellow caramel bready malts with a floral hop finish. Nice dull copper penny color, short head and some lacing. Good aroma - floral sweet. Found this at Circle Liquors in Pennington, NJ.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2004 RERATE: bumping up a few things after a second round with this refreshing ale!
ORIGINAL: A solid ale. Very fresh and lively even after having several beers prior. Certainly a good go-to beer.

On tap. Poured a medium amber color. Hoppy and malty aroma and tastes. Couldn’t really pick anything special out of it although I enjoyed the overall taste.

Good pour out of the tap. Aroma of caramel and toffe, good color and a decent head. Went down really well on a ver HOT day. This is the first of many from nj brewery, which is minutes from my home. They were very nice and invited me back whenever.

I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this beer at the Parsipanny Sheraton in NJ. They have it on tap in the lounge. The pour was quite impressive. A nice amber color with a frothy head and slight cloudiness. The aroma was slightly toffee with average maltiness. It had a nice creamy texture. It was slightly sweet and bitter.

Maibockaddict had it right. There’s some hoppiness, some aroma, some body and a pretty good color; just not enough. An average+ brew. Props to an NJ brwer. Quite drinkable.
