Too sweet when drinking too bitter at the end. Tastes like a Saranac Beer that way ....

On tap at the Adirondack Hotel on Long Lake (Long Lake, NY). Amber body with a thin, lasting, white creamy head. Decent malty aroma with grainy hints. Its well balanced malty taste carries hoppy, woody, and grainy notes. Ends with a good woody finish. Not bad.

Tap at Prime in LGA airport. This sucks. A yellow-golden colored Amber? Smells like cardboard. Artificial sweetness. Wrong on many levels.

Maybe circumstance, I don’t know, but I seem to like this more than many--new york bistro after the ncaa wrestling finals. I drank a few and quite enjoyed it.

Dogbrick (11495) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2014
On draught at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse. Clear amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, caramel and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

mansquito (5340) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Left Hand Path, Brooklyn tap: Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel malt and a little bit of hops. This is basically a very easy-drinking amber ale with some light hoppage thrown in. There is nothing offensive about it, but nothing very interesting either.
