Jesterdeal (1655) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2014
On tap at a dive in North Jersey. Aroma of malt, biscuit, and slight rye. Pours dusty brown with a warm medium. Taste is rye bread, biscuit, and a lingering funky malt. Overall a nice malty mouthfeel but kind of bland. Nothing special but nothing gross.

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Nose is lightly dusty and crackery, pours beautiful deep red-brown with a large sudsy beige head. Taste is somewhat sweet with a little alcohol shine, very crackery and biscuity with light pepper and mild toffee. Very earthy, and that’s the thing that sicks with. Medium body is smooth and modestly still, bitterness low. Woody. All in all, a nice, simple, traditional (as in verrry traditional) offering with very good repeatability as a session ale.

ryanscourt (555) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Enjoyable sweet body with slight btitering throughout. Very nice session beer, staying light with nice flavors. Fairly well carbonated for a bitter.

Bottle at 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 03/19/2011. Mostly clear copper amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel, earthy malt and light floral hop aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with some caramel, earthy malt and some floral notes. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

mike67 (733) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with long lasting, fluffy, white head and much lacing. Aroma is of piney and citrusy hops, caramel and bready malt, yeast and some fruity esters. Body is medium and tangy. Herbal hops, caramel malt, bread crust and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Very nice session brew.

njnut (156) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Poured into english pint glass, pours a very nice copper color with slight haze. Head was thick and long lasting. Three fingers at first. Some lacing. Co2 was lively. Fairly heavy malt aroma, with a taste of malt followed by some pine and alcohol on the finish. Some bitterness in the finish. Foam till the very end. Light mouth feel, not creamy but slick. Enjoyable and I would by again.

mzaar (1366) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2013
Flaska. Rödbrun med vitt skum. I både smak och doft hittas karamell, gröna äpplen, krispig citrus samt örtighet. Mycket trevligt beska. Fyllig kropp.

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2013
On tap at Harper’s.
Appearance: Slightly hazy copper body with a creamy tan head.
Aroma: Slight caramel with a light fruitiness, hints of spice, sort of reminds me of a spiced Oktoberfest.
Taste: Light malt with hints of fruity esters and a mild floral hop presence.
Palate: Watery, low carbonation.
Overall: This is a very bland and forgettable beer. I really hate that they call this a cask ale also. I wish breweries would stop using words they don’t understand.
