UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 This is the beer that turned me on to good craft beer. I know it’s a bit ironic considering that this is not much of a craft beer. Until I had a pint of this a few years back I used to think that Guinness was the best thing around. I haven’t been able to duplicate my experience with this or any other Fordham product, but it opened the door for me and for that I give it a lot of credit. It’s not as bad as the ratings may indicate here. I suggest you try it only if you happen to find yourself in the Rams Head Tavern though...not worth going out of your way for.

Dobre ale trochę za jasne jak na amber ale. Piana mocna i gruboziarnista, ale szybko niestety znika, w smaku gorzkawo wytrawne. W sam raz smak ten dopasowuje się do potraw.

Amber/copper, dense head. Nice buttery aroma. Very malty, toasty notes. Fairly dry. Not much hop, but that's not objectionable for an alt.

Pours a beautiful clear light coppery color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of bitter hops with a hint of grapefruit. Taste is bitter with hops present and hints of faint citrus.

Got this in my Beer of the Month Club shipment...and enjoyed it very much. I love the roasted malt color, aroma, and flavors. This is a good candidate for an everyday beer.
