Good looking brew with a frothy head. Nice aroma with a combo of clean, metalic, pine and light malt. The flavor is just a malty mess. That’s all I can realy say about the flavor. Sticky mouth feel full body. Whatever.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2010
22 oz bottle from Binnys (Naperville, IL). Pours a dark brownish copper, a good haziness, decent tannish head that laces ok, some deep red elements. Aromas are a nice malty sweetness, caramel and toffee pair with biscuits, floral hop bitterness, faint licorice, touch of red pit fruit, and maybe even a faint touch of juniper on the nose. Initial is medium bodied, a soapy floral hoppiness moves into a touch of grapefruit, pretty good hopping moves into caramel, toffee, biscuits, grainy bread dough. The grapefruit hopping really sticks to the palate, a light warming alcohol, a faint reddish pit fruit like cherry comes in, mellow. Faint vanilla, a pretty solid brown ale. I’d prefer it have a bit lighter pull in the ABV category personally. Nicw, finish is lightly bitter hops sticking to it, a faint mellow sweetness. Not bad. A bit soapy, a little spicey, brown malts prevail with a solid hopping

carruthm (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2010
sweet with some traces of bitter hops, but it lacks a dominant aroma or flavor profile and the palate is a touch watery.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
Tap @ Union Jacks - dark red brownish color with small but firm white head. Big hop aroma - lots of dry hopping. Floral yet meaty (chinook?) aroma. Round full soft mouthfeel - slightly sweet at the beginning. Finishes with a nice snappy bitterness.

22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear reddish-brown color with a nice size off white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is floral hops and toasted malt. Flavor is lightly sweetened toasted malt with some nice hops to back it up. Finish has a bit of hops lingering. Medium body. A nice beer.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2010
On draught at Cole’s. Hazy amber with virtually no head. Sweet aroma, yeasty - quite a "Belgian" character to it, but also dry and a bit grassy - my notes say almost like a roasty trippel - whatever that might be. My taste notes are "yeah - what the fuck!" - unexpected; sweet - like a a mash-up of an English bitter and a decent Belgian golden ale; sweet, yeasty, a bit of alcohol for good measure; interesting. Light bodied, virtually no carbonation with moderate alcohol and slightly dry in the finish; kinda weird, interesting.

22oz bottle at Redlight. Big brown pour with a thick off white head. Nice citrus hop aroma and lots of malt. Spicy hops, big malt body. Good brew.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2010
Thanks to hudsonphotog for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark, reddish-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is a nice mix of piney hops and caramel malt. The flavor is big time orange citrus and pine hops with a strong caramel malt backbone. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
