On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Some diacetyl, caramel, and toasted malt in the nose. Moderately night carbonation. Some more butter in the flavor. Mild toffee and toast. A touch of fruit. The butter isnít overwhelming and I think acceptable in small doses for the style. Fine.

Quite good mild session beer. Perfect pairing with some excellent BBQ at the new brewery in Dogpatch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (7046) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Magnolia, pours a clear dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is very subtle, with some very slightly caramel-tinged toasted malt. Flavour brings out toasted bready malt, very very dry caramel accents, and some dry red fruity notes. Highly drinkable, bready, and dry caramely. Good stuff.

gyllenbock (5010) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2013
On tap at the Pub, August 2013. Clear reddish/copper with a medium head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, nuts, toffee and some fruit. Soft and easy to drink. The finish was dry. A solid one.

10 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub last weekend. Very faint aroma with a light nuttiness, and a light sweetness. Not much else. Transparent ruddy-amber body with a small, off-white head present. Starts a little carbonated with a mild spiciness, too. Becomes a little nutty in the middle with very light toasted malts. A little overly-carbonated and spritzy for me, though.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Nose is bread, toast, popcorn, and diacetyl. Somewhat floral and a hint of citrus, maybe some cocoa and coffee in there, too. The flavor is okay once you get past the butter. Sweet bread and toasted malt, some popcorn, and floral hops. Light citrus peel flavor and bitterness, mild cocoa and coffee, and a moderate malt sweetness. The butter character really ruins this beer.

Nice dark copper/red. Smooth and malty, but not too sweet. Stays on the tongue with a nice hint of hop at the end.

They pour this up in a big imperial pint glass at the brewery, great style for this serving size. Itís a pretty clear red brown w/ a long lasting head of mixed bubbles. Itís nice and light but creamy in texture but still rather full flavored. Very English in character, perhaps along the lines of a bitter. Itís malty w/o being sweet w/ earthy and herbal hops. There is some toasted malt and a touch of chocolate along w/ a very, very slight buttery note. Iím into it.

(Draught) Pours a clear golden body with a medium cream head. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, and raisins. Flavor of cocoa, roasted grain, caramel, and light coffee with a bitter finish.
