Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma has caramel and toffee...light fruit. Flavor follows suit and adds some biscuit and dry leaves...light earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is earthy/bitter and dry.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2010
clear caramel color, very light co2, aromas are malty, slightly citrusy. the flavors are hoppy, its medium bodied, good malt backbone, slightly sweet, and its a little off balanced. aftertaste is clean and crisp, and doesnt linger for to long.

20090827 Cask (say my notes) at Maple Shade. I don’t think this was on nitro, rather I recall a hand pump. Maybe I’m wrong. A bit on the flat, limp, watery side. Somewhat disappointing at a time when some brewers are really knocking the lighter styles out of the park. Mild earthy, leafy hops. Not much at all happening here that would make me want to spend a session with it.

jcwattsrugger (11105) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2009
on tap @Maple Shade-pours a white head with yellow color. Aroma is light/noble hops, second grain. Taste follows with a smooth mouthfeel. Easy.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Pours a dark golden amber/light coppery color with some golden orange hues when held to a light source and a two finger frothy white head that has very good retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap that leaves sporadic patches of soapy lacing. Caramel malt aroma with hints of biscuit, slight hazelnut and subtle hops. Very light bodied and watered down. Easy drinking but mostly because it lacks much body and/or flavor. Caramel malt notes with some biscuit and almost no hop presence. This beer is very one dimensional and bland with a very watery dumbed down flavor. The cask conditioning has mellowed this beer out considerably, making it very drinkable but also terribly boring.

dmac (4080) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a light amber with a small lacing of white head. Aroma was mellow with some notes of nutts, toffee and grains. Flavor is the same but the body is sooo smooth from the nitro pour that I could drink this all day long. At 3.7% I really can drink this all day long!!!

EithCubes (5000) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Draught in the new Maple Shade location. Light amber with a clear, light white head. Definitely nitroed. Fairly grainy malts, Smooth amber and caramel malt, a little nut and spice toward the end. Watery body, low bitterness, soft and woody, highly sessionable!

hopdog (9008) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Nitro at Phoenixville. Poured a medium golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of graininess, very lighlty spicy, and fruity. Tastes follow suit. At 3.7% and considering its drinkability, I can see it living up to its name as a Session Ale.

DocLock (7909) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Draft at P-ville. Poured deep gold with fluffy white head. Nose was pale malt, spicy white peppery notes, mild hops, and mild grainy notes. Flavor was crisp, a well balanced match of pale malt, hops, peppery hints, and some fruity notes. Solid, and a beer I would have growlered had Bourbon Dubbel not been available.
