Poured a maple brown with a white head from the bottle. Initial aroma was sugary sweet and malty. Taste was surprisingly pleasant, roasted malt, brown sugar, a little bit of orange citrus. Finish is clean, not at all bitter. I can’t imagine anyone would dislike this beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2006
Dark amber with minimal head. Aroma has some nuts, dark malts and a touch of spice. The flavour is malty but otherwise pretty thin. Some sweetness to strat and a drier bland finish.

notalush (4859) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Completely clear brown pour with no real head to speak of - aroma of roasted nuts and caramel - light fruity esters, some cocoa and hazelnut in the flavor - kind of a bready, yeasty finish - decent - if it weren’t filtered and pasturized it would probably be a lot better.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Dark mahogany-brown body, with only a small head. Noteably low in alcohol. Musty, putrid aroma- very malty, but no real defining characteristics. Thin body with simply caramel and malts, no complexity at all. Sour, sweet finish.

Bottle. Reddish brown colour with a weak head. Aroma of caramel and malt, also in the flavour ends up soft and light.

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, light brown beer with a small, off-white head. Aroma of nuts. Medium-bodied with vinous, almost sherry like accents. Nuts and caramel in the flavour and a short, dry finish. Very delicate. 130806

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a chestnut brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, light fruitiness, and cocoa. Flavor of toasted malt, nuts, caramel, and a hint of fruit. An enjoyable English ale!

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Handsome pour, a rich brown body with ruby highlights and a creamy beige head. The aroma is malty with molasses, fresh apple skins, and just a hint of earthy bitterness. A sweet malty drink, caramel mostly, with molasses and fruit and a light nuttiness. Very nicely blended and quite drinkable.
