This beer was very good it had some good up front notes of hops but not overpowering that the beer can not be enjoyed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bouteille de 355 ml (12 oz fl.) achetée lors d’un voyage à Chicago. Dégustée le 11 novembre 2010. Bière rousse voilée. Mousse peu, col mince beige, éphémère. Très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de froment, de berries et de pain grillé. Très douce, assez sucrée, peu amère. Très bonne mais un peu mince, manque un peu de caractère.

Copper pour with a sweet nose of caramel and malt. Bitter taste that transitions to that malt sweetness at end. Easy drinking.

foyle (316) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance-- pours a cream colored 1/2" head that recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is amber/copper and mostly clear with abundant carbonation bubbles streaming. Aroma-- very malty -- smells of slight cinnamon and a moist dough, such as a warm muffin from the oven, a peppery hop spice is also evident. Mouthfeel-- mostly light, watery, and refreshing. Has a somewhat lager like mouthfeel with a dry finish, although there is some of the fluffiness which should be present in the English Bitter style. Flavor-- well balanced, hops are in the background and subservient to the malt. Flavors include a peppery and earthy hop spice, a rich bready malt (again like a fresh warm muffin, or a fresh whole wheat bread). There is some caramel and just a hint of cinnamon. This beer is not overly sweet and the aftertaste has a lingering citrus rind bitterness.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Malty fresh, slight hoppy aroma. Mild toffee/carmel flavors. Dry, fruity finish. Medium bodied. Rather average beer. I have had this and the christmas ale and I dont feel anything special about these beers. Not bad, but could be more interesting.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Rating this from memory after drinking several while in Chicago recently. Thought it a nice and decent APA with an alright amount of hoppiness and fruit flavours. Pretty standard, but when somebody plunks down a bottle of this and a bottle of Old Style on the table....well, the choice should be fairly obvious.

Bottle. Copper color with good white head and nice lacing on glass. Very nice aroma of malt, hops and biscuit. Flavor of biscuit, malt and a good bit of hop bitterness. Good mouthfeel. I thought this was an excellent beer. Loved the hoppiness.
