copper hue with beige head, the aroma is subdued hoppiness. it is medium bodied, the bitterness anchors the flavor quite well, nicely balanced.

Bottled on 4/14/09. Poured clear, medium garnet with a short, creamy cap of yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and nutty notes with an ample dose of juicy grapefruit, pine, and earthy hoppage.. sappy sweetness emerged as it warmed up. The flavor had caramel, darker fruit, and berry sweetness at the core, but the hops were a bit of a mess.. sticky grapefruit, pine, and peppery notes didn’t play well with each other or the malts.. finished bitter and sharp. Light-medium bodied, with an empty feel at times on the palate.. again it didn’t flow too well and ended very bitter. Lost some ground after the initial impression.

500 ml bottle - thanks clint!! Clear amber with trace white head; caramel, dry malt and honey; dry with some sweet malt and fruit; slight twang from the fruit I guess; something a little off, but can’t put my finger on it

From bottle, dark brown pour with a decent head. Earthy aroma, piney and some wholemeal toast. Nicely balanced flavour sweet malts but not clawing leading into fresh dense bitterness. Good ’un.

On cask @ Volo. Pours a dark orange with minimal head. Aroma of sweet fruits, diaper, and sweet bready malt. Flavor of bready malt, English pale malts, toffee, jam, sweet dark fruits, raisin. Kind of odd with a tart palate. Somewhat drinkable but I just didn’t get this one.

Appearance :Amber gold with golden fine top.

Medium bodied, aromatic soft but thinish. Caramel with herbal strike with hint of green bitterness. Fruity finish. Not especially coherent.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 The beer smelled nice and hoppy, but I found that all the taste was middle-loaded (ie my first impression and the finish were both low on flavour. I also found this brew a little watery. Its not offensive, but not something I would order again by choice...their mild is amazing though!

Draught @ Bar Volo: Pours copper in colour, little white head. Smells almost cheesy, weird. Tastes like red grapefruit and caramel malts, quite a bit of flavour to be had, most of it from hops. Ok.

500ml, srcrizz style. Copper amber color with a gray-white head. Toffee, peach and some bready malt. Thin watery body. Slightly sweet an sour with some earthy bitterness. Tastes kind of infected to me.
