Bottle. Pours deep orange with a light haze and a very small head. The aroma is malty (light biscuit, and hay type grains). Smells like a lager. Malty flavor with undertones of citrus (but not in the most pleasant of ways). Very minimal hops noticed towards the end. Body is adequate/medium. Much more like a lager than an ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 Pours a dark golden with a white, mostly diminishing head. Some strange protein globules floating around knocked a few points off appearance and could be due to the age of the beer. Sweet aroma of malt (bready, cookie) with some notes of floral hops and honey. More caramel malts and subdued fruitiness in the taste, with a hint of butterscotch. A tart, sweet finish. Like an English bitter without an overwhemling load of hops. Better than other ratings would suggest.

Medium golden. Staleish english hop aroma, bit of dust and perfume. Rather sweet, but not overly interesting malt. More staleish hops late. Thanks Eric!

12 oz bottle consumed in Lexington KY - Pours amber and slightly cloudy. A film of white head graces the top. Aroma is slight caramel and grass. Flavor is grainy caramel malts and a little yeast. Not much in the way of hops. Feels o.k. on the palate kind of smooth like butterscotch. Not all that bad for 5.99 a six here in KY..

Dark orange that is almost an amber color. The aroma is nice tobacco with some caramel. There is also a little bit of peanut. The taste has some nutty caramel. There is also a little tart apple with some hay. Interesting concoction.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle: Pours darker orange with little to no head. Aromas are very light, hard to pick up the faint caramel malt, some light grassiness as well. Flavor is grainy, but so very light. Where are the hops? Better than most macros, but that isn’t saying much.
