3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark golden, clear and bright coloured ale wearing a small white head that recedes to a ring. Toasty, bready, fresh grain sack aroma with delicate biscuitiness. Not unpleasant at all and supported by refreshing carbonation. Soft zesty hops complete the portrait. A good example.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of some orange, caramel, light nuts and bread. Flavor had an up front hop flavor, not over the top but was the first thing that came through. Some caramel malt and toasted malts to balance. Low on hop bitterness that lingers.

A very nice toffee nose leads the way leading to a slightly tart body and a quick lightly bitter finish. As with their other brews, a slightly sewer-like overtone ruined and otherwise perfectly good beer.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 LVP&B’s driest beer, hops are assertively bitter, but balanced by enough malt to make a really pleasant beer, somehow the dryness and citrusey hoppy thing just go perfectly together. Awesome brew. P.S. I work at Long Valley Pub & Brewery

Copper to red amber coloring, a sweetish malt taste that doesn’t dominate and a trace of hops. Better than average head and a light-medium body closer to a lager than an ale. Good drinkability.

Sweet toffee, some biscuit (surprise!), caramel, pleasant orangey hops, a little tangy. They did this one alright.

Nice amber color
Taste reminds me slightly of Yuengling (which isn’t a bad thing) except a little fresher and livelier. Pretty good overall
