UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 Mild malty aroma, thin white head. Deep amber color, smooth taste, medium body, average carbonation. Crisp finish. somewhat flat, not memorable or one to go back to if there are choices.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small beige head. Aromas of honey, caramel malt, and a little banana ester. Flavor is pretty sweet, with honey, caramel, cane sugar, and plum. Very little hop presence. Smooth beer, very easy-drinking. Pretty good.

arventresca (561) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle. This a heavily malted beer. Hop notes not really presant. Not bad by any means. A decent offering. A little weak for the style however.

OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2010
Bouteille 10-09-10: De couleur brune très pale avec une légère effervescence et une mousse éphémère. Les aromes se font rares, mais ont peut percevoir de belles petites notes de pain, de caramel et surprenament, d’alcool. En terme de saveurs, il manque définitivement de finition, mais qualité/prix, c’est une très bonne petite bière d’automne. Douce en bouche, légèrement piquante et juste asser maltée, elle passe très bien. Elle laisse une petite sécheresse en bouche.

freekyp (1473) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2010 A solid malty larger with a chewy sweetness moderated by an earthy bitterness in the finish. Malt profile is similar to a Sam Adams Boston Lager, but with more caramel and less hop character. Nice balanced brew that would be great with a burger.

Strykzone (4783) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle at Bigelo’s Bistro. A medium brown with an off white soapy head that quickly dissipates. Not a bad beer at all. Nice fruit, spices that include pepper and cinnamon, and fairly rich malts. I had it with a spicy pizza which did not give the beer a fair chance. Still, it came through as a nice beer.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle. Rusty amber with a minuscule, fizzy white head. Strong caramel and spicy hops in the aroma. Sweet fruit and malt as well. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, dried fruit, light berries and spicy hops. Body is medium with a soft chewiness about it. Carbonation is moderate. Finishes with more caramel, sweet malt, fruit, spicy and earthy hops, and soft nuttiness.

jport4087 (178) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Pours an amber/orange, crystal clear with fizzy off-white head. Aroma has an unusual hop presence, faint cherry, light caramel.

rougeau13 (1951) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Clear reddish color with a rapidly dissipating head. Decent sweet flavor, though a bit thin. It works like a Sam Adams Boston Lager, better than most beers in the average bar around here, but not a high choice where there is a decent selection. Overall, very average.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Fresh 12 oz. bottle. The pour yields what appears to be a still body, with virtually no head or lacing. Lightly hazy, and a dark burnt-orange hue, the liquid sports no visible carbonation bubbles. Aromas are overly spiced, showing stong bubblegum, clove, and orange peel overtones amidst a malty caramel and bread base. Hops are very mild and floral in nature. Flavors follow suit, again rather boring and perhaps even a bit muddled. There’s almost a hefeweizen yeast thing going on, what with all the banana, clove, and bubblegum I’m getting. Baked bread crust and caramelized sugars remain the dominant components. In spite of the appearance, the palate actually sports an intensely lively carbonation that stings the tongue with its fiery dance. On the back end, the medium body transforms into a heavy, sugary coating. Not my thing. This is a pretty poorly done brew.
