JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle. Solid amber appearance with a touch of red. Milk chocolate, rich malt, black current and honey aromas. Sweet palate with minor grittiness. Flavour starts off a little bland, with some melon and salt but grown a healthy chocolaty malt finish. Better than average.

Very balanced, while not very robust in flavor, a very good session ale, being easy drinking.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2011
On tap at Nick & Nates, Sylva NC on 10 July 2006. Attractive bronze/amber colour. Light grassy hop aroma. Much fuller hop presence in the flavour - flowery and resinous. Light biscuity malt backing. Mellow mouthfeel. A very sold and drinkable amber.

bkurtz (899) - PERU - JAN 3, 2011
Poured a hazy amber with a smallish head that stayed aroung for awhile. Nice balance of bitter hops and sweet malt. Some citris and burnt carmel notes. Pleasantly surprised.

Garito793 (241) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Not extremely tasty, nor aromatic. Taste is nutty, pretty sweet, toasty or roasty (whatever the difference is). Aftertaste is not bitter, but alcoholic.

queenholly (3066) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel and citrusy hops aroma. Flavor was sweet malt, some orange, and a very subtle hops finish.. Light bodied with a carbonated tingle. Overall simple, but still nice.

Onslow (1225) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. SLightly hazy brown brew with three fingers of off white head - seems a little over-carbonated as the foam gushes out of the bottle after opening. Aroma of brown sugar and malt extract. Taste is sweet with hints of molassas and a bit of hops bitter in the finsih. Rather thin palate. A little too sweet throughout and hops is a little unbalanced, but otherwise a very nice brew.
