nimbleprop (4880) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2009
12oz bottle pours a translucent, deep caramel brown with a frothy, creamy slightly tan head. The beer settles like a glass of Guinness. Very nice looking. Aroma is fairly mild, some distinct caramel sweetness, a little dusty, very earthy, a touch peaty. Flavor is big on the sweetness up front, caramel, toasted malts, sweet malts, a touch of orange. Finish is a little watery with both some lasting sweetness and some lasting bitterness.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Good head but there is little lace. Light amber color--near clear. The smell and taste resembles chocolate and molasses. It is bitter from the darker malts. Astringent taste with a bitter aftertaste from the the alpha hop oils. The body is solid, almost chewy. Overall, a solid offering in the pale ale category. A solid but neutral ale.

Pours a three finger cream head that faded quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Murky amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is sweet going to piney hops leaving a bitter aftertaste. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT. Contract brewed by Mercury Brewing.
