tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Medium/dark amber color - a little cloudy with a thin uneven head. Aroma is bready and slightly earthy. Flavor is moderately sweet, but rather muddy without any crisp roastiness or well-formed body. Finish lingers a bit and is a little sticky. Nothing worth trying again.

HippieFee (62) - - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle - Dry hop flavor with a little to much sweetness from the malt for my likeing. They say this one sells out quickly but I don’t understand why. It has the off taste to it, maybe its the malt they use.

Pours a clear amber amber with smallish head. Typical fest aroma of caramel and bready malts. A bit sweet with soapiness in the middle. A decent fest beer.

Scouser (237) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Pouts an golden orange, with little to no head or lacing. Malty aroma no much to write home about. Nice tasting beer, malty sweet upfront followed by some hopiness, and finish nice and dry, nutty flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
