mcberko (14077) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Feint aroma of cereal malts, syrup and light caramel / toffee. Flavour of raisins and other such dried fruits, toffee / caramel, male syrup and some bready malts. Finished syrupy and fruity. Low-to-medium complexity. Easy to drink, but nothing extraordinary. Fine for what it is.

bhensonb (13996) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Draft at the downtown brewpub. Light medium malt aroma. Reddish amber color with a creamy off-white head. It laced a bit. Medium body; moderate carbonation. Sweet dark fruits, but not too dark, and some carame/toffee malt. Not much bitter. Arguably a very flavorful amber. Finish is not quite dry, and again, not much bitter.
