clear amber, whispy white head, light sweet carmel malt aroma with floral hops, a swirl will kick up some fine head and citrus aroma, touch of drippy lace, good hop flavor on a well balanced carmel malt base with just a touch of sweetness, the sweetness grows into a butterscotch character, nice bitter finish

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A murky amber coloured beer with a puddly white head. The aroma is sweet and floral, almost herbal in a way. The taste is over-sharp and over bitter. Not very good and possibly infected?

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2009
22 ounce bottle from Whole Food Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a copper color with a very large head, good head retention and thick lacing. Very cascade-ish hop aroma with some subtle malty notes in the background. Taste is earthy and citrus hops with some caramel malt notes. Medium boded. Very straightforward, but solid.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A lofty head settles over the muddy orange.
-Tropical fruit, wooden hops and caramel malt are bothered by an oncoming pickle juice.
-Citrus fruitiness from the hops and tartness from the yeast farts. Something’s amiss.
-The lively carbonation offers a frothy mouthfeel.

What if you dig digger?
-There is no way to tell on the bottle, but this one must not be young.
-Some saltiness in the back recalls Gose.
-The leafy, citrusy hoppiness, which could be very pleasant, is diseased. Rampant wilderness mocks it.
-I hope these guys figure out what’s happening to their bottles. Their interesting recipes (Imperial Pale Ale, Doppelbock, and now this) are destroyed by time, an obvious sign of earlier problems in the process.

Bottle; no date!
