crackedmachine (479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2011
On tap in Marshall. Amber-brown in color, sizable head, similar to many harvest ales. Aroma is notably not very hoppy - instead it is mild and mostly malty. Flavor, likewise, lacks any strong hop character, but it is a decent, mildly hoppy harvest ale.

Sweetish caramel nose with lots of citrus hops, light floral notes. The taste is light to moderately sweet, moderately bitter, sweet caramel malts, grapefruit and pine.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2011
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Hazy medium to deep orange-brown body, tight medium cream head. Nose of herbal, leafy hops. Leafy body, also sweet and toasty, modestly bitter and more malt-driven than many harvest ales.

chibuck (3510) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft... Medium copper, nice tan creamy head... Weak ass nose for a wet hopped beer, light hops, a bit of toffee, wet grains... Light taste but really good, nice malty backbone with smooth finish
