Pours with a nice thick head, looks good, nice and clear with a dark golden hue. I smell bread, along with biscuit and a bit of grapefruit and pine in the nose. Tastes of caramel with some bitterness and finishes dry. It’s a middle of the road American Ale, but a decent one at that.

Backlog rating on 8-17-2012 (Bottle) This beer has a medium sized off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden hazy body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and grassy hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, caramel malt, semi-sweet, and grassy hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is quaffable with the malt upfront and the hops taking a backseat.

slowrunner77 (1859) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Fruity hops blend with ample biscuit and Carmel malts on the nose and flavor. Better than average for a style I’m not usually crazy about, but not worth going out of your way for."

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Gravity at GBBF 2014. Poured a clear amber, with a dense white head and good lacing. Aroma of raisins, sweet fruits and hay. Straw and grassy hops in the flavour, with some melon fruity sweetness. Finish was quite sweet; lots of caramel and mango.

planky84 (2105) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Cask at GBBF, 2014. Gold pour with a white head. Stewed veg aroma, not much nose at all. Flavour is a little better- sweet fruit action. Not one to knock your socks off.
