Hazy amber colour. Slightly spicy caramel and brown sugar nose with a hint of hop herbaceousness. Very quaffable - heck, slightly watery - with a balanced Simcoe-toast-caramel character. Somehow I wish for more in this brew but that’s not to say I don’t like what’s there.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aroma is malty/yeasty. Med + body. Flavor is roasty malt with some earthy and, perhaps, citrus hop. It’s hoppy enough to be tasty, and it’s bitter enough to not be a typical amber. But it’s malty enough to fall into the amber category. Drinks ok tho.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A reddish copper ale with a thick big bubbled off white head. In aroma, a rather nice herbaceous hops and caramel malt, and a bit of catnip. In mouth, a rich and malty ale with rich nice and smooth hops, floral and distinguished, rather British, quite good. On tap at Horse Brass Pub, Sept. 4 2010.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep ruddy pour with a thick white head. The nose is quite hoppy. Rich sweet malt but it’s not cloying at all. A bit of resin and pine with a nice sticky resinous finish. Iced tea and a bit of sweet caramel which I normally hate but here it kind of works. Assertive bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Draft @ Double Mountain in Hood River. Cloudy rust colored body. Creamy sour and prickly red grapefruit, wood and nuts in the nose and front of the tongue, along with a touch of faintly sweet caramel. Hearty and full and rich. Tangy/spicy/oily/resinous. Wow. Wonderfully explosive resinous hops, amazingly fresh tasting. A masterful beer.
